Potters Industries • RIDGLOK® Chemical Storage Tank • Augusta, GA

Potters Industries LLC, is a leading producer of engineered glass materials serving the oil and gas Industry, polymer additives, highway safety, metal finishing, and conductive particle markets.   Potters is the largest producer worldwide of highway safety marking glass beads, metal finishing beads for cleaning and strengthening metals, glass media for grinding and dispersing, glass microspheres for friction and weight reduction in oil drilling applications and metal-coated particles to provide electromagnetic shielding interference of electronic parts.

The MC&I crew sandblasted and painted parts of both the interior and exterior of the tank.  One coat of touch up TNEMEC Series 20 was applied on weld seams and abraded areas followed by a full coat of TNEMEC Series 20 on the interior.  The exterior weld seams and abraded areas were sandblasted and one touch up coat of TNEMEC Series 20 was applied on the exterior.  Despite encountering some delays early on in the paint portion of this project, the crew was able to complete the project in a timely manner and to the customer’s satisfaction.

This RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Panel Insulation System was installed on a storage tank for Potters Industries in Augusta, GA.     The tank was utilized to hold silicate for the facility. 

The RIDGLOK® Insulated Panel System consisted of 0.024 white stucco-embossed aluminum metal jacketing laminated to 2.0” polyisocyanurate insulation board with an R-value of 13.1 using a straight panel cone roof system.  The roof panels were equipped with non-skid tape to allow for safe maneuvering when necessary.

The tank was a 21’ diameter x 30’ high welded tank.  The project was completed on September 1, 2015.

RIDGLOK® Insulation Systems MINIMIZE heat gain and REDUCES the load on the chillers or heaters to maintain consistent operating temperatures.  Chemical tanks are insulated for OPTIMAL process control.  Insulation of storage tanks REDUCES routine maintenance and PREVENTS energy waste and LOWERS fuel costs.
