Contractors Needed for Ground Storage Tank Rehab

WEDNESDAY, MAY 11, 2022


The City of Rusk in Texas is currently seeking contractors for the rehabilitation of ground storage tanks.

Bids are due May 26.

Scope of Work

This project involves the rehabilitation of one 0.10 MG elevated storage tank, one 0.20 MG elevated storage tank, one 0.50 MG ground storage tank, one 0.30 MG clearwell and one 0.25 MG bolted ground storage tank.

The welded steel tank will require abrasive blast-cleaning interior surfaces to Near White (SSPC-SP 10/NACE No. 2) and application of an aromatic urethane zinc-rich primer, polyamidoamine epoxy intermediate, and 100% solids, high-build modified polyamine epoxy finish coating. The welded steel tank will also require abrasive blast-cleaning exterior surfaces to Commercial standards (SSPC-SP 6/NACE No. 3) and application of an aromatic urethane zinc-rich primer, aliphatic acrylic polyurethane intermediate and advanced thermoset solution fluoropolymer topcoat.

The bolted steel tank interior will require sweep blasting to Brush Off Blast-Cleaning standards (SSPC-SP 7) and Near White Blast-Cleaning (SSPC-SP 10/NACE No. 2) for areas with rust, followed by polyamide epoxy primer and stripe coat, and a modified polyurethane liner. The bolted steel tank exterior will require surface preparation through Light Waterjetting (SSPC-SP WJ-4/NACE WJ-4) by use of a low-pressure water cleaning between 3,500 and 5,000 psi, or Hand and Power Tool Cleaning (SSPC- SP 2, SP 3) to areas where loose paint and rust have not been removed. Exterior surfaces will then be coated with a mastic waterborne acrylic primer, aliphatic acrylic polyurethane intermediate, and advanced thermoset solution fluoropolymer finish coating.

The concrete clearwell will require abrasive blast-cleaning to Near White (SSPC-SP 10/NACE No. 2) to interior steel appurtenances, followed by an aromatic urethane zinc-rich primer, polyamidoamine epoxy intermediate 100% solids modified polyamine high-build epoxy finish coating. Exterior steel appurtenances will require abrasive blast-cleaning to Commercial standards (SSPC-SP 6/NACE No. 3) and application of an aromatic urethane zinc-rich primer, aliphatic acrylic polyurethane intermediate and advanced thermoset solution fluoropolymer finish coating.

Logo coating is required. Disinfection is also required.

The owner-approved coating manufacturer is Tnemec, or an approved equivalent.
