Linings for waste

Posted: Tuesday 9th March 2010

Structural repair and refurbishment specialist Ram Services Limited is carrying out work to provide chemically resistant linings to a series of chemical storage bund structures on the Lancashire Waste Partnershipís main processing sites at Thornton and Leyland.

Facilities at these two sites will be able to process in excess of 400,000 tonnes of household waste per year, dramatically reducing the amount of waste going to landfill.

At both sites, Ram Services Limitedís teams take possession of the completed bund structures, prepare the exposed concrete using abrasive grit blasting and high pressure water jetting techniques, apply easing fillets of epoxy resin mortar and make good to surface irregularities prior to application of a variety of lining materials.

Specifications for the lining material vary to suit the level of chemical resistance required for each bund structure, but all involve a build up of liquid epoxy resin based components, to create a continuous, seam free finish.

Constant liaison with client W2R (Waste 2 Resources) joint ventureís project management team ensure that work can be completed and fully cured ahead of chemical storage tank installation, with weather protection and applied heating being used to ensure conditions on site are fully suitable for application of the coating materials.
