AmTech repairs fiberglass tanks by re-lining them and/or repairing or replacing FRP nozzles. We also offer fiberglass tank inspections detailing conditions of your fiberglass tanks and recommendations for repair to avoid tank failures.
Storing even moderate corrosive products eventually takes its toll on the interior corrosion barrier of corrosion resistant fiberglass tanks.
Using the newest compatible glass, Kevlar and carbon veils, along with service specific polymer matrixes, AmTech can reline FRP tank interiors before the contained product permeates the underlying structural body of the tank, heading off breach of containment situations.
In most cases, even if a fiber glass tank has breached its corrosion barrier, the overall structural integrity of the vessel is still in tact, offering an ideal substrate for our field personnel to fabricate a new corrosion layer, adding years of service life to the tank.

When a new fiberglass tank is manufactured, nozzles are installed per the customer's specifications, or the manufacturer's stock designs. A penetration is cut through the new fiberglass tank body and the fiberglass nozzles installed with a laminate plastic build up resembling a flange.
When piping and valve layouts are changed after a fiberglass tank is in place, it is often necessary to make field changes to the original nozzle locations.
Our field crews can relocate, resize and block off nozzles, ports and manways using structurally sound factory protocols. Each job is tank specific, using resins and nozzles made for the specific constituent products stored in the tank.

Routine periodic inspection of all composite / FRP tanks is recommended and potential major problems can usually be avoided by maintenance programs designed to keep the interior top layers of reinforced plastic composite functional.
Whether on a periodic schedule or as a one time event, AmTech can perform interior and exterior inspections of your fiberglass storage tanks, supplying comprehensive reports detailing existing conditions and recommendations. Preventative service can be the key to eliminating unexpected and untimely tank failures.
Your AmTech Tank representative can advise you on setting up an inspection program at your facility.
Using a selection of over 35 composite materials, fiberglass and other laminates are measured, layered, cut and assembled in our composite department for shipment to job sites.
Sections of mat and woven material are custom assembled for each FRP tank resurfacing job in the field. Each tank refurbishing project is pre-engineered for the right materials, resins and hardware.
Unfortunately, driving a fork lift into a fiberglass tank is not really that uncommon. Each year AmTech's field crews respond to a multitude of unexpected tank repair situations, including electric motors, mixing assemblies and other equipment and tools that have fallen into and impacted a tank.
With our strategic placement of field crew personnel across North America and Canada, mobilization to your location can be a relatively quick function of our service program.
AmTech's National Field Service Crews, backed by our composite engineers, are positioned and ready to respond to industry's routine maintenance and emergency service calls. Whether it is a leaking FRP tank, a broken nozzle or the need to add or replace nozzles, we are your tank resource.
As with most plants and facilities, it may be a problem to take a storage tank out of service or free up an area for our crews to perform their work. Therefore, we can work around your schedule — shut downs, weekends, night shifts — we adapt to you.
