Conditioning Atmospheres Inside Tanks for Cleaning and Painting
by Brian Peroni, Florida Power & Light
The locally prevailing air temperature, the moisture content in the air % relative humidity, and the temperature at which moisture will condense on the surfaces (dew point) are commonly called the atmospheric conditions. If these conditions are not within the ranges required by a coating specification during surface preparation and coating application, problems with obtaining a protective film with a long-term performance are likely to occur. This webinar focuses on the atmospheric conditions required in tanks and other enclosed spaces and how they can readily be controlled by heating, cooling, humidification, and dehumidification.
