Hempaline lining

Trusted lining solutions

Hempel makes the grade with refinery crude storage tank lining

A major United States oil refinery has chosen Hempel’s Hempaline solvent free epoxy lining as an interior tank lining for a 200 foot / 61 metre tank diameter sour cured oil storage tank.

Hempaline epoxies are 100% solid materials that can often be applied in a single coat and have rapid curing properties. This saves our customers time and money in application costs and completion times. Faster project completion allows them to return a unit to service quickly producing revenue.

Hempaline epoxy was chosen for this application because of its ability to resist acid conditions of the tank’s cargo, high sulphur crude oil. Hempaline will provide long lasting protection to the tank, minimising future maintenance and repainting costs.

With rapid curing, our Hempaline epoxy lining returned the customer’s tank back to service producing revenue with a lining that can be trusted for chemical resistance quickly, producing corrosion protection that lasts.
