Is Painting Your Silo And Storage Tanks Really Necessary?
In short – yes. Painting your silo and storage tanks is incredibly important for several reasons.
Before we dive into the deep end, take a look outside. How do your silo and storage tanks look? Are they shining in all their well-maintained glory? Do they instill a sense of confidence and professionalism?
Probably not, as is the case for most sites.
The problem is, these assets are likely vital to your production and act as large, inescapable platforms that advertise your brand. Painting your tanks is an investment you won’t regret.
Let’s take a closer look at why.
Protecting Your Equipment
Simply put, tank painting protects them from corrosion – and corrosion is a killer!
However, you likely already know this. Silo and storage tanks are prone to corrosion from exposure to the elements, direct contact with stored corrosive materials, and temperature and humidity changes.
Besides creating an eyesore, corrosion causes structural collapse over time, plant shutdowns, product contamination, costly maintenance, and wasted time and resources.
Industrial painting solves the problem of corrosion, combatting deterioration from chemicals, moisture, and rusting and protecting your tanks for years.
Industrial painting companies also provide sandblasting services, which remediate corrosion by renewing the surface before applying a durable coating of quality paint.
Safety And Stability
As mentioned above, industrial painting services will eliminate corrosion problems on your tanks, thereby removing the risk of collapse or contamination.
This significantly improves their stability and the safety of those working around or inside of them. Industrial painters can also use sandblasting to remove lead paint and replace it with the high-quality, safe paint coatings of today, eliminating the possibility of lead leaching and poisoning.
As old paint jobs deteriorate, your tanks are vulnerable to premature wear and tear (and you, early maintenance costs).
Industrial painters will use the right application of contemporary industrial-strength coatings that are specially designed to withstand the intense conditions of your facility for years to come.
First Impressions And Branding
Painting your silo and storage tanks leaves a strong, profitable first impression on potential employees, prospects, partners, and investors alike.
It gives them visual proof that you take care of maintaining your site and reflects your professionalism, standards, and attention to detail. This sentiment is then carried over into the rest of your business operations by default, boosting the perceived value of your business and brand.
It also instills a sense of confidence. With heavy machinery and harsh chemicals housed on-site, well-maintained tanks are a sign that everything else is well-maintained, safe, and reliable too.
