Navigating the options for internal tank linings that protect against contamination and corrosion will be the focus of a free upcoming webinar by SSPC and JPCL.
"Epoxy & Vinyl Ester Tank Linings," to be held from 11 a.m. to noon ET June 4 (4 to 5 p.m. CET), will discuss the challenges utility owners and engineers face when assessing the available systems for coating tank internals.
The webinar will give an overview of some key perfomance features to evaluate when considering vinyl ester and epoxy tank linings, especially at elevated temperatures.
Participants may register here free.
