"The roof and skirt are designed to travel (float) as the volume inside the tank fluctuates," according to Gary Zinn, sales director, Industrial Markets for Tnemec.
"No design has yet solved the persistent problem of rain water accumulation and ponding on top of the roof," Zinn observed. "This water combines with industrial and cooling tower fallout and escaped hydrocarbon vapor solutions which attack the substrate. In addition to ultraviolet (UV) light degradation, roof and sidewall coatings are often subject to elevated temperatures for crude and distillate storage of 120 to 140 degrees F. It is easy to see that all exterior surfaces of floating-roof tanks should be regularly maintained."
Exterior steel on floating roofs is also subjected to salt-fog conditions found in coastal environments. "It's estimated that in Louisiana's coastal environment, approximately 1.0 mil of protective coating material can be lost each year to erosion," Zinn reported. "So a dry film thickness of 16 to 20 mils is recommended to achieve a projected 20-year life cycle with proper maintenance."
"In meeting specification requirements of major oil companies and fuel jobbers, coating systems for floating-roof storage tanks must meet a range of performance criteria," Zinn explained.
"Using this combination, total film thickness on the roof is approximately 20 mils," Zinn noted.
The interior walls and floor areas are exposed to varying degrees of corrosion, from storage of sour crude (sulfur and salt laden), and higher vapor pressure volatile liquids. "In the past, some engineers did not coat the interior surfaces with the belief that residues and a thin film of corrosion inhibiting petroleum will protect the surface from corrosion," Zinn said. "This was proven not to be the case, even in those areas continually in contact with oil, because of the extremely corrosive nature of dissolved oxygen, hydrogen sulfide and naphthenic acids in some crude."
A design feature which greatly increases corrosion of interior surfaces is the freeboard area of the walls exposed by movement of the roof. This zone may be alternately immersed in the product, physically abraded by the moving skirt, and exposed to the atmosphere as levels in the tank fluctuate. "It is prudent to upgrade interior areas when maintenance pulldowns permit because inspection intervals can be between 10 to 25 years," Zinn added., 25 Nov 2013 [cached]
"Last year was a very depressed market because of falling commodity prices," recalled Gary Zinn, sales director, Industrial Markets for Tnemec Company, Inc.
With the current resumption of drilling activity, Zinn anticipates increased market demand for maintenance supplies, such as lubricants, pressure valves, sections of pipe, seals, gaskets, connections and industrial coatings provided by oilfield supply houses.
"The 2HS is a very high solids version of Series 2H Hi-Build Tneme-Gloss," Zinn explained. "It's VOC compliant anywhere in North America except the Los Angeles basin, and is available in all oil field standard colors."
"Ease of application and performance on marginally prepared surfaces is especially important to the people who maintain these drilling rigs on-site," Zinn added. "Product availability is also important. Each drilling rig manufacturer has its own color designation, so it's critical to have the right products in the right colors available at a moment's notice in case a rig goes down and it needs immediate attention."
At recent meetings in Houston, Zinn found a mood of optimism he has not seen for several months. "The oilfield is a very cyclic market," Zinn added., 25 Nov 2013 [cached]

(KANSAS CITY, Mo., June 9, 2009) - Tnemec Company, Inc., a leading manufacturer of protective coatings for industrial and specialty architectural markets, is offering protective coating and lining products for bulk storage facilities, according to Gary Zinn, director of sales, Industrial Markets.
"Through strategic agreements, Tnemec has expanded its offering of protective exterior coatings with thick film interior lining systems," Zinn explained. "The addition of these specialized coatings provides Tnemec customers with additional coating options in bulk facilities that store fuels, solvents & chemicals."
Tnemec has been a respected supplier of protective exterior coatings for refineries and petrochemical facilities in the oil industry for many years and is recognized for its strong technical support, according to Zinn.
"The addition of selected Glass Armor products allows us to provide superior resistance to chemicals and physical abuse for the interior of storage tanks in more aggressive operating conditions," Zinn explained., 9 Dec 2007 [cached]
"Under the agreement, Tnemec is the sole owner of this technology, which will be marketed under the new Tank Armor brand name," according to Gary Zinn, sales director, Industrial Markets for Tnemec. "The lining technology is exactly the same and we will continue to use the same Tnemec product series."
Tnemec has manufactured and distributed Glass Armor epoxy linings for aboveground storage applications under an exclusive licensing agreement with Bridgeport Chemical. "The acquisition of these linings allows us to continue to provide superior resistance to chemicals and physical abuse for the interior of storage tanks in more aggressive operating conditions," Zinn explained.
"When properly selected and applied, high-build linings can protect the interior and exterior of ASTs from corrosion caused by a wide range of aggressive acids and petrochemical solutions including sweet and sour crude oil, gasoline, diesel and bio-diesel fuels, solvents and oxygenation additives like ethanol, to name a few," Zinn noted.
"Exterior coatings are specially formulated to protect the outer shell of tanks, piping and exposed structural steel against ultraviolet (UV) light degradation, abrasion, corrosive fumes and weathering," Zinn added.
