NHE enhances process tank designs with Witt Lining Systems
Article Type: New materials and equipment From: Anti-Corrosion Methods and Materials, Volume 62, Issue 1
A major development to NHE’s process system manufacturing capability is being announced by the company with the addition to its range of flexible drop-in liners from US-based Witt Lining Systems – NHE becomes the exclusive distributors throughout the UK and Ireland. Proven to enhance corrosion control in process tanks and secondary containment areas, the move is set to build on NHE’s process tank manufacturing capability, most notably via its design, comments Will Green, Sales Director at NHE. “We believe the use of in-tank secondary liners in aggressive chemical processes is an excellent demonstration of this policy being applied to significantly improve current practice in our industry.”
Witt Lining’s track record has been established in a range of relevant sectors from chemical processing and surface finishing to water and wastewater management, complementing the capability of Plasticraft and Lancy Technology – also part of NHE. Each installation is custom fabricated to meet precise application requirements and can provide solutions even where sub-structures are unsuitable for particular coatings – perhaps due to conditions or time constraints. Importantly, the design also enhances safety procedures, as the need for confined space working can be significantly reduced when existing liners are being replaced.
In all cases, because linings are not bonded to the tanks, they can be easily installed. Dielectrically welded seams and corners maximize lining performance, while irregular shapes including outlets, overflows and flanges can be readily incorporated into each individual design.
A choice of materials is available, including a range of PVC options – notably Koroseal which is a well-established propriety formulation of PVC that traditionally has been bonded to tanks. For the metal finishing industry, in particular, Koroseal is a well-known trade name, closely associated with this type of application, and for which Witt Lining Systems is the exclusive drop-in liner provider – so, in turn, NHE now becomes the exclusive UK supplier of Koroseal brand drop-in tank liners.
“I feel NHE is in a great position to introduce Witt Lining Systems to the European market and I couldn’t be more excited about working with them”, adds Andrew Hotchkies, President of Witt Lining Systems. The distributorship announcement is set to offer new opportunities for his company whilet building on the expertise and reputation for excellence that has underpinned NHE’s success for many years (Figure 1).
