Carbon FRP offers an ideal solution for repair and strengthening of tanks and silos that are damaged by corrosion. In many cases, leakage of these tanks can be stopped by means of carbon or glass FRP. Moreover, by applying carbon or glass FRP, repair and strengthening of the tank or silo can be achieved to levels that exceed original design strength. This is particularly interesting since such strengthening or repair with FRP will allow additional loads to be imposed on the FRP-retrofitted tank.

QuakeWrap has developed a special patent-pending procedure for repair and strengthening of electrolytic tanks in the mining industries with carbon and glass FRP. Among unique features of this FRP system is a special fabric that is resistant to damage due to falling electrode plates.

The installation procedure of QuakeWrap FRP to repair and strengthen tanks and silos is simple and involves basically cleaning and patching of tank surfaces, application of a resin tack coat (QuakeBond J201-TC) that allows for the QuakeWrap fabric to adhere on vertical and overhead surfaces, saturation of the fabric with the proper saturating resin and application over the tack coat.

Case Study

A sample project where QuakeWrap FRP products where used to repair and strengthen electrolytic tank cells is given here Tyrone Mines, Tyrone New Mexico.

QuakeWrap™ can be applied in potable water carrying tanks under certain conditions, see NSF-61.
