Galvanising Process Tank Liner
A Recent project was the fabrication of 3 very large Tank Liners for a Taranaki based Galvanising company. The liners were made from black PE100 sheet and were made with the ends of the tanks thicker than the rest of the liner body to provide increased resistance to damage due to the nature of the items being processed. The liner dimensions were 8.8m Long, 1.65m Wide and 2.81m High and are designed to store 17% Hydrochloric Acid. The Liner was fitted with support strips welded to the base to hold items off the bottom of the tank while being processed. The project also required special consideration on how the liners would be lifted and placed into the concrete tanks and were therefore fitted with lifting lugs to ensure ease of handling and minimize and Health & Safety concerns. Due to the nature of the liners, spark testing of the joins was used to ensure the liner integrity. The liners were manufactured in-house at APD’s Auckland Factory and shipped to site.
