Cleaning and Painting of a Ship Loader on the Gulf Coast of Texas

While every industrial painting and cleaning project we undertake is unique in its own way, we recently finished a job on the Texas Gulf Coast that stood out from the crowd.

Because of that, we thought you might find it interesting.

Our client’s ship loader (that’s a self-explanatory name, isn’t it?) is perched on the coastline, battling the relentless, corrosive nature of the salty environment. Its existing coatings were failing, and we were called in to offer reinforcements before it sustained any long-term damage.

Three Major Considerations When Painting an Industrial Ship Loader

1) Safety

Working in a setting like this with aerial lifts, machinery in operation nearby, and ocean underneath calls for extreme caution to say the least. As we’ve mentioned before, the safety of both our team and yours is of paramount importance (click on over here if you missed our recent article!). For this project we included daily safety inspections before, during, and after each shift. And, we’re thankful to say, our injury-free record stands strong!

2) Debris Containment

Because we were working directly over the water, we needed a system to contain any falling debris during the cleaning and painting process. With this goal in mind, we installed a large netting apparatus underneath our work areas, designed to catch anything and everything that might otherwise land in the water.

3) Products That Fight Corrosion

After power washing the surface with our 6000 PSI industrial unit, we degreased wherever necessary to allow for the best product adhesion, and then applied primer and paint. Here’s a quick breakdown of the products we used:
