06207 A PRACTICAL APPROACH FOR DEHUMIDIFICATION OF HUGE STORAGE TANKS DURING INTERNAL COATING APPLICATION

To maintain strict environmental conditions, tanks are dehumidified during the surface preparation, coating application and curing. A practical approach, detailed project calculations, practical field problems & their solutions and on-site implementation of dehumidification of huge crude storage tanks is described in this paper.

Crude & Petroleum product storage is a very important activity in the petroleum industry; it requires that storage tanks should have smooth operation without any in-service leakages, which increases the unplanned tank outages and environmental pollutions. To minimize the chances of in-service leakages or to increase the tank service life, specially developed high performance coatings (e.g. high built solvent-less epoxy coatings & high built urethane coatings) are used. To get the optimum performance, these specially developed coatings should be:

A) Applied over highly blast cleaned surfaces that are prepared under highly controlled environmental conditions.

B) Applied & cured under highly controlled environmental conditions.

To maintain strict environmental conditions, tanks are dehumidified during the surface preparation, coating application and curing. A practical approach, detailed project calculations, practical field problems & their solutions and on-site implementation of dehumidification of huge crude storage tanks is described in this paper. This advanced technological concept in the field of high performance coating application was successfully implemented for the first time in India.

Keywords: Humidity, Dehumidification, Dehumidifier, Moisture Removal rate, Flow rate, Flash rust
