Working with Applied Technology Services, Inc., APEX conducted an exterior tank coating inspection on a 162 ft diameter, 48 ft tall tank at the Irving Oil facility located in Searsport, Maine.
The surface preparation consisted of the contractor using a water jet blast to clean the surface. This process was conducted to remove all the existing failed paint. The contractor then applied one coat of Devoe 231/235 @ 3-5 mils dft. Then two coats of Devoe 220 Tank White 4-6 mils per coat were applied.
Measurements of the dry film thickness (DFT) for readings were performed after each coating application. The readings verified specified DFT of 12 mils minimum. The average was 21 mils. The readings met specification requirements.
