Ancorite Surface Protection Ltd has been awarded a contract for the supply and installation of the internal lining system for the New No 1 Hot BPA (By-Products Acid) Tank for Lucite International Ltd, Cassel Works, Billingham.
Site work commenced in autumn 2016 and the lining system is due for completion in spring 2017. Ancorite’s contract includes procurement and installation services and work is currently in progress on site.
The internal tank lining is a complex, multi-layered system comprising acid resistant brickwork and epoxy vinyl ester resin. The final coating is furane based with glass fibre reinforcement.
On completion, the New No 1 Hot BPA Tank will be one of two Hot BPA Stock Tanks at Cassel Site. Ancorite provided the lining system for the existing tank, some years ago.
