About the Project
Processing tanks as used in the gold industry require constant maintenance due to their abrasive nature in the gold extraction process. Eight (8) newly constructed CIL Tanks, total approximately 6500 m2 area, completed safely and within schedule.
The internal surfaces of the tanks were firstly abrasive blasted achieving a 90 micron profile. The steel surface is then tested for contaminants before the application of 3-4 mm of Nukote ST. On completion the coating works, holiday testing is conducted to ensure total monolithic encapsulation has been achieved. Nukote’s high performance polyurea coatings provide the ultimate protection delivering years of maintenance free service.
Nukote provides a complete turnkey service in the refurbishment of CIL tanks including relining the tank internal walls, floor, agitator shafts and blades and associated steelwork as well as tank external coatings.
Special Points Of Interest
- Higher film thicknesses can be applied to high wear areas to increase service life.
- Polyurea coatings provide the ultimate protection for CIL tank internal lining.
- Eight (8) newly constructed CIL Tanks, total approximately 6500 m2 area, completed safely and within schedule.
