Allied Environmental Services, Inc. Announces Addition of Storage Tank Coating Services

Share Article

Allied Environmental Services, Inc. (Allied), one of the Great Lakes region’s premier environmental contracting firms, has added storage tank surface preparation and coating to its list of core services.

Our turn-key approach also results in a safer project and typically shortens the project schedule.

For nearly two decades, Ohio-based Allied Environmental Services, Inc. has offered storage tank and vessel cleaning and maintenance services to the petro-chemical manufacturing and transport industry. In response to customer demand, Allied has expanded these services to include interior and exterior tank surface preparation (i.e. grit blasting) and coating/sealing.

According to Gary Gootee, Allied Industrial Services Manager, Allied field crews have completed an extensive training program for tank coatings application. “Surface preparation and application of corrosion preventative coatings are highly specialized and technical skills”, Gootee stated. “These specialized coatings cannot be effective if improperly applied over inadequately prepped surfaces. To safely store and maintain their products, our clients depend on the integrity of their storage vessels, and they rely on Allied to ensure that the highest standards are met,” Gootee added.    

Along with training, Allied has invested in state-of-the-industry coating equipment. According to Gootee, the specialized epoxy coatings are applied using a Duomix plural component, heated spray system. The system regulates the temperature of both the resin and catalyst epoxy components before combining them at the spray nozzle. “It’s an impressive piece of equipment”, Gootee stated, “but the coating will only be as good as the surface prep. We really focus on getting the tank walls and floors ready to receive the coating.”

According to Gootee, the response from Allied’s customers has been very positive. Allied’s ability to provide tank evacuation, cleaning, preparation and recoating services eliminates the need for multiple contractors and simplifies the project. “Our turn-key approach also results in a safer project and typically shortens the project schedule”, Gootee added.
