Pipe penetrations can be accommodated with a Witt drop in tank liner.
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.
Flexible PVC tank liners are not a commodity item. There are inherent differences in material formulations along with fabrication techniques that separate tank liners from Witt Lining Systems from any other manufacturer.
Witt Lining Systems is proud to be exhibiting at SUR/FIN 2016.
One of the many benefits of a flexible PVC liner is that only minimal prep work to the substrate area is usually needed to be done. With concrete applications extensive sand blasting and concrete repair isn’t necessary.
Because PVC tank liners are custom fabricated for an exact fit we require precise measurements of the area to be lined. Of those dimensions the most critical would be the inside dimensions of an outlet. Whether too big or too small, an ill-fitting outlet can lead to a premature failure of a flexible liner.
