Tank & Silo

Tank Power Washing, Sandblasting, & Painting at an Ethanol Plant in Nebraska

We connected with this particular client at a national ethanol industry trade show. In the course of our conversation we learned that they were having issues with mold and mildew growth on the outside of their tanks. This not only looks unsightly, but not having clean, properly-coated surfaces can lead to faster deterioration.

Because slowing down the decay of your property investment is always a wise idea, we were thrilled when they asked us to put our expertise to work for them.

Professional Tank Cleaning

We started by cleaning the sides of their tanks with our industrial-grade power washer. And, when we say “industrial-grade,” we don’t simply mean powerful. To put our equipment in perspective, the average homeowner’s power washer sends out a stream at anywhere between 1500 and 2800 PSI.

Ours does its job in style at 6,000 PSI.

With great power comes great responsibility, so you can rest assured that our team is thoroughly trained to safely and effectively use this kind of pressure to your advantage.

We then rolled up our sleeves and, with a combination of power tools and good old-fashioned elbow grease, we cleaned particularly rusty areas.

Tank Painting - All the Right Products in All the Right Places

After carefully masking off those parts of the equipment that were not to be painted (signs, lights, etc.), we applied a two-part Macropoxy, in white. After that, we laid down a high-gloss topcoat of mildew-resistant Acrolon Ultra, also in white.

Here’s a breakdown of the tanks we painted:

As a side note, we also sandblasted and painted the draft tube.
