Preparing for Changes in Tank Linings

Originally Presented: Wednesday, November 11, 2020

Clean, safe drinking water is paramount to water industry officials. In addition to important changes to NSF Std. 61 requirements for potable water coatings, some local municipalities and health departments have further lowered extractable allowances to levels that can be very difficult to achieve. Tnemec Company, Inc. is successfully participating in projects across the country that meet these strict requirements by educating decision makers and helping avoid contentious situations that can arise after a potable water lining is installed. In this interactive webinar, we will describe the ways in which interior coatings are being affected by new extractables testing. We will discuss these new methods of analysis and how they will impact you as an installer of certified lining materials. The presentation will also cover several case studies and discuss how Tnemec is able to support your project, beginning with coating selection and ending with an accepted lining installation.
