Most importantly conserving our natural resources, with our specialized underwater vacuum we are able to cut the cleaning time down to a minimum.
Interior and exterior assessments; review structural, sanitary, safety, security and any installed coating conditions.
Minimum items to be examined include; ladders, shell, roof, vents, man ways, seams, anchors, safety systems, hatches, external overflow and plumbing.
High resolution color video will document the interior inspection. The documentation will be completed with real time closed circuit underwater video equipment. All pertinent finding will be recorded including, dive technician's findings and a narrative summary.
MIT meets all regulations and standards required for diving, inspecting and repairing potable water tanks, including but not limited to regulations and standards from OSHA, EPA, CDPHE, AWWA, NFPA and TCEQ.
All dive technicians and equipment that is used in the tank will be fully disinfected prior to accessing tank in accordance with AWWA Standard C652-11. All entries will be conducted in accordance with applicable OSHA regulations pertaining to diving and confined space; including 1910.401 through1910.441.
Sediment will be thoroughly removed from the floor of each scheduled tank.
Most interior coating systems for immersion require an SSPC SP 10/NACE No. 2, Near-White Blast Cleaning profiling steel and sspc 6/concrete.
The cleaning and profile will allow the applied coatings system to adhere to the substrate. Delivering you a tight coatings system protecting your tank against corrosion.
Interior coating systems DFT will varry from 12-60 mils typically in a potable water tank. Selecting the coating system can change the cost due to the elements, pot life, re-coat, and back in service time.
like the interior coating system the exterior can range from $30 per gallon to $1,000 per gallon in certain top coats. The coating system selected will determine the profile needed and if the method of over-coating is an option.
