Chime area

How to avoid corrosion in the chime area of your storage tank?

Presserv offers solutions to avoid water infiltration in storage tanks.

The chime serves as the interface between the storage tank’s sidewalls and the tank’s foundation. The chime area is an important issue regarding corrosion at storage tanks because water infiltration in the chime area is a common problem with storage tanks.

Generally, a tank is built on a concrete ring and the tanks floor plate is resting on this foundation. Movements during filling are expected, and therefore a gap between the concrete ring and the floor plate is very common. If the chime has not been properly sealed, water can penetrate this area which is between the floor plate and the bed, creating a corrosive environment. Presserv offers a flexible system for new and existing storage tanks that prevent water infiltration and avoiding corrosion problems.
