42 NOVEMBER 2018 COATINGSPROMAG.COM During the Belzona paste grade and coating applications, all applicators wore Ty vek protective suits, latex gloves, shoe coverings, and protective eyewear to avoid incidental contact. ere was also a dedicated ventilation fan inside the tank at all times, and the crew wore forced-air respirators with cartridges. Passing the Inspection A lthough it was slow going with each layer of the coating system being hand-applied, the crew •nished the job right on schedule and before the harsh winter weather set in. "We worked long shifts to make it happen, but the end result was worth it. We really liked working with the Belzona New York products, and there were a lot of eyes onsite, making sure that everything was done right the •rst time," said Vera. In the end, the "temporary •x" did, in fact, become the long-term solution. At the six-month inspection mark, the coatings were performing well beyond expectations, rendering replacement of the tank unnecessary. T he team, made of Dean Energ y Solutions, Belzona New York, Phi l Castel lano, and Tower Maintenance Cor p., was able to ma ke this cost- ef fective and ef f icient solution a rea lit y. " Tower Maintenance prov ided a top -notch crew of applica- tors, which is a lways key in any g reat coating application," said Belzona New York 's Vice President A lex ander Pr ince. " T heir applicators and our 24 -hour on-site technica l instr uc- tion made for a g reat team, which was cr ucia l, g iven the f ive-day w indow that the application needed to be completed in for the asset ow ner." is job proves that asset replacement is not always the only answer. Working with the right team can bring new possi- bilities to reality. CP VENDOR TEAM Belzona, Inc. Coatings manufacturer 2000 NW 88 th Ct.

The crew completed the 500-square-foot (46.5 m 2 ) project in a week. And the coatings, which were originally applied as a temporary fix, performed so well that they became the permanent solution.
