Nationwide Water Solutions Ltd have just completed the refurbishment of large sectionalwater storage tank, used to provide emergency cooling water. The large sectional tank is located at TATA Steels site in Stocksbridge, Sheffield.
The existing tank held around 100,000 litres and was leaking badly from a joint on the tanks base. The tank had been drained and left out of commission during a recent Furnace refit, and on refilling the leak was discovered.
The tank was around 30 years old and constructed from pressed steel panels. The leak was due to the age of the tank and drying out of the tanks panel seals. We attended site and proposed the installation of our Flexible Polypropylene Lining System. The lining system is used to provide water containment, whilst the original tank provides the strength and support.
The tank has recently been filled and the furnace put back into production.
