Steel Braithwaite water Tank Repair and Reline – Sheffield, South Yorkshire

Case Study – Steel Water Tank Repair

This project in Sheffield was one of the biggest reline jobs undertaken by Cold Water Storage. Our client had two very large steel Braithwaite tanks on-site that were both very heavily corroded, meaning they no longer met regulations. 

The tanks were structurally sound so we wanted to try and retain them for a number of reasons; budget, impact on site and environmental sustainability.

The Solution

We put a project plan together and provided a quote for a steel water tank repair. A summary of the steel water tank repair project is described below: 

  • Full confined space entry. 
  • Shot blast abrasion of the entire tank and then once completed clean the tank and vacuum all dust. 
  • Coat the tank with a stripe coat and two full coats of a DWI approved epoxy coating.
