Home / Crude Oil Storage Tank
A new crude oil tank. 46ft diameter by 21ft high with extreme mill scale on it. Contractors were experiencing a very difficult time blasting it off.
They first started off with KleenBlast 36 mesh Slag on the underside of the roof. Which is the 46 diameter, and about 3 1/2 feet down the sides – 2,200 sqft. They used 12 – two ton bags of Slag. And the blasting took them four days with two blasters.
Next we tested GX2, achieving a 3 ½ mil profile. They did 10 1/2 feet up the side of the tank all the way around out the inside of the tank – 1,500sqft using less than 3 bags. Blasting in one day with two blasters.
