Agricultural Seeder Tank Protection

Seeding is arguably the most important activity in grain production. In broadacre farming, the increase in productivity appreciated from an air delivery system to distribute seed and fertilizer from a central storage tank to the seed drill opener has revolutionized farming practices. The storage tanks are configured to deliver as per application use. However, due to the corrosive nature of liquid fertilizers like Urea in the holding tanks, a solution was required to protect the inner lining of the tanks further, extending the productive life and minimizing future maintenance issues. LINE-X XS-350 was selected due to its high chemical resistance. The agricultural equipment is manufactured in different locations around the world and assembled in the country of use. LINE-X XS-350 was sprayed on all the

Versatile Boat Build. Providing Fishing During Extreme Sea Conditions

Extreme fishing enthusiasts do not want to be stopped by harsh sea conditions. Large waves, with heights of 2 meters and up to 7 meters in length, would prevent most smaller vessels from staying out at sea. Designing and engineering a new boat is needed to operate safely within these severe sea conditions. When building a new boat, you want to ensure the substrate can hold up to saltwater and potential penetration from sharp objects at sea and whilst mooring the boat. A boat was designed for use in demanding conditions of the sea. With the primary purpose of fishing under all conditions, the boat measured 5.7 meters long, 1.2 meters wide internally and 1.8 meters wide externally. A Robust Coating Solution The finished boat

Anti-Spill Secondary Containment

Frac tanks can store liquids or solids like petroleum products, chemicals, manure, saline water, and proppants. An advantage of Frac tanks is that they are mobile and easily transported to their required location.  It is an environmental requirement that a Frac Tank has a suitable containment/dike area installed to contain any potential spillage. Installing an appropriate secondary containment area can prove difficult in remote areas to prevent any chemicals from leeching into the surrounding environment. The surface of the secondary containment area was prepared by compacting sand into a wall in the form of a dike in preparation for the placement of six Frac Tanks.  The installation of 8×8 mm reinforced mesh is applied on the surface of the dike to create a firm substrate

Gas Pipe Bellows: Increasing The Lifespan With LINE-X Polyurea

When it comes to the transfer of sulfur dioxide (SO2) gases to an acid plant, you need to ensure you have the best solution for protecting the pipeline. Industrial bellows are installed in pipes to prevent damage caused by thermal growth vibrations and pressure thrust. However, these bellows can be exposed to abrasives and liquids- risking corrosion that can lead to a burst pipeline and gas leak. Corrosion of the bellow can happen for numerous reasons: pitting corrosion, galvanic corrosion and crevice corrosion to just name a few. Whatever the cause of the corrosion, a solution is needed to prevent a burst pipeline and gas leakage. LINE-X XS-350 Pure Polyurea Increases The Lifespan of The Gas Pipe Bellows. XS-350, a pure polyurea by LINE-X, has

How To Protect Steel Pallets From Battery Acid

Industrial-grade batteries are stored and transported on specialized steel pallets. Steel offers more durability and strength than typical wood or plastic pallets. As a material, steel is better suited to store flammable liquids – it won’t melt or burn in the case of a fire – and boasts a high load rating. However, if a battery becomes damaged during transport, it could potentially leak battery acid. Battery acid contains sulfuric acid, which is highly corrosive and causes significant damage to the steel pallet. Battery acid leakage is a common issue within the mining sector. In Rustenburg, South Africa, the mining industry required a solution to prevent the steel pallets from corrosive damage caused by battery acid. The Solution to protect the steel from battery acid

POLYUREA UNDERLAYMENT by LINEX

Concrete Waterproof Polyurea Underlayment Process

In the world of construction, waterproofing can be one of the most critical aspects of a construction job. Waterproofing is especially important when laying commercial-grade tiling for pedestrian walkways or driveways for vehicles. A flooring underlayment serves as a barrier between a concrete foundation and a tile application placed on top. If water penetrates the surface and reaches the concrete substrate underneath, it can cause significant damage resulting in expensive and time-consuming repairs. Since moisture is the biggest issue when laying a high traffic tile floor, an equally durable underlayment is required. In Mexico, several major infrastructure projects needed a commercial-grade, watertight, and cost-effective underlayment solution. A polyurea underlayment is one of the most reliable options available.  LINE-X Polyurea Underlayment LINE-X Polyurea Underlayment LINE-X Polyurea

Waste Water Tank Lining

SITUATION Outdoor and underground storage tanks are subject to corrosion and abrasion at the hands of chemicals, extreme temperatures, and normal wear-and-tear. These factors can – and do – lead to harmful and expensive leaks and spills. For a local chemical factory located in the Czech Republic, the threat of leaks and spills is unacceptable. They needed a permanent waterproofing solution for their existing concrete tanks that would meet the local environmental protection regulations and prevent contamination. Applying a durable waterproof coating meant retrofitting the existing underground tanks in the field. Hazardous chemicals and extreme weather conditions had weakened the integrity of the concrete tanks. SOLUTION The answer to restoring and waterproofing the tank was LINE-X. Spray-on polyurea primary and secondary tank coatings prevent corrosion
