TANKiT® is an emergency and temporary reinforcement solution for damaged tanks and pressured vessels suffering from corrosion defects (internal/external corrosion) up to 100mm hole size.

TANKiT® is a multi-layers product using a cold welded steel plate and Kevlar® patches impregnated with 3X specific resin. It can be applied without shutdown, unless active leakage.

This pre-engineered product is sold in ready-to-use kit and can be used only in specific cases (up to 100mm defect size and up to 20m diameter tank).

USES

  • Repair external/internal corrosion
  • Repair through-wall defects up to 100mm
  • Stop the corrosion (if external defect)

APPLICATIONS

  • Onshore and offshore installations
  • Various tank designs and up to 20m tank diameter
  • Temperature up to +60°C (+140°F)
  • Compatible with most common fluid and gas

BENEFITS

  • No engineering, no calculations
    (ready-to-use)
  • Online repair (except for hole)
  • No heating or post-curing required
  • Cold welding system
  • Cost effective solution
