Applications

Fuel & Water Tanks

Rapid Prep offers the right equipment for your job including surface preparation for all fuel & water storage tanks.

Why storage tank blasting is important

When working with fuel storage tanks it is very important that the internals of the tank are coated. This is because fuel and oil is lighter than water, so all the water drops to the bottom of the storage tank and it becomes very corrosive. The bottom of the tank is often contaminated with chlorides.
