At Pinto Valley Copper Mines, Barrier shines bright.
Tank Corrosion Lining
PINTO VALLEY COPPER MINES
Copper mines use large aeration tanks to process sulfide ore into concentrated copper. The tanks at Pinto Valley Mine had become badly rusted during dormancy, so when the operation came back online, Barrier was called upon to clean and re-line the tanks.
- Jet-washed existing substrate
- Large rust areas abraded by hand
- Applied 80 mils PermaDri liquid membrane to entire tank surface
- Went through intense 2 day mine safety training
Barrier partnered with the manufacturer of PermaDri – a waterproof coating designed for commercial use – and applied the product to the tanks using our proven spray application technologies and expertise. The tanks now perform like new.
