We have a motto or saying around there that “cheaper doesn’t always mean less expensive”. When it comes to tank liners there certainly is a ratio between price and performance. With all things being equal, would you like to lower your cost ratio by 5-10 percent?
One of the many features of a Witt flexible drop in tank liner is the ease of repair. Of the two methods of repair, the adhesive method is the easiest and probably the most common. However, it is paramount that the right adhesive be used.
A major medical hospital had built a concrete pit to hold water for their fire suppressant system. After two attempts to seal the pit with an applied coating the pit still leaked into adjacent areas of the hospital.
SUR/FIN 2016 in Las Vegas is a wrap. Naturally, we were proud to be on display showing off our drop in tank liners and in particular our Koroseal® PVC liners with an LFP CrossFilm™ skirt for added service life in hard chrome plating.
One of the many benefits of a PVC drop in liner is that it can be folded compactly to minimize shipping costs. Typically, when we ship liners we kick the bottom of the liner inwards and the widths of the liner out. This makes for the most compact way of shipping a tank liner.
Our PVC drop in liners are a great solution for secondary containment problems. Flexible PVC liners are fast to install, require minimum surface preparation, and probably most important, can bridge cracks in concrete that would cause coatings to fail.
A common practice with bonded PVC liners is to install one thickness to the sidewalls (typically 3/32 in.) and a thicker gauge (3/16 in.) on the bottom. This may be sold under the guise of providing greater puncture resistance but in the end this is only for the installer’s benefit not yours.
