Palmyra Tank Refurbishments

By: Paul Powers, Induron Sales Representative

The city of Palmyra, Missouri, which is located two hours north of St. Louis, was platted in 1819 and is home to nearly 4,000 residences. With many buildings and homes listed in the historical  registry, Palmyra is rich with Civil War and Pony Express history. In fact, in 1827, the town became the Marion County Seat, which established it as the oldest postal stop in Missouri that is still in operation today. Induron is fortunate to have worked with the city to refurbish three water tanks. Continue reading Palmyra Tank Refurbishments

Induron’s Ceramic Epoxies Withstand the Test of Time

By: Linc York, Induron Sales Representative

We’ve all heard that doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity. For decades, the popular way to protect structures immersed in or subject to aggressive environments has been to apply three coats of a “high build” epoxy at approximately 15 mils. This approach works adequately, but could there be a better, less-costly way to achieve superior results? What if you could provide enhanced corrosion resistance for less cost while saving time and applying fewer coats to achieve a higher dry film thickness?

PermaClean 100 Ceramic Epoxy: The Solution for Sardis Water Authority

By: Russell Hicks, Induron Sales Representative

Sardis Water ClarifierRecently, Induron provided materials to help Sardis Water Authority with a much-needed facelift.  For nine years, the water and sewage utilities company located in Clayton, Oklahoma had two finish filters working double duty, and they were beginning to show signs of wear and tear.

Sardis Water had two major problems. First, a new and larger clarifier needed to be built so that the two existing clarifiers could be converted into finish filters. Second, the water system needed a coating solution that could meet several demands. Sardis Water Authority needed the filter back in service quickly due to water usage demands. Additionally, the Sardis Water’s new coating system needed to be applied in a single coat while offering excellent abrasion resistance.

Greg Vaughn of Vaughn Engineering turned to Induron for a solution, and we delivered. Our solution was PermaClean 100 Ceramic Epoxy applied to 10.0 to 15.0 Mils DFT. This product offers absolute minimal undercutting, unrivaled Film Build (NSF approved up to 50 Mils DFT), ultra-low permeability and a non-ablative surface.

Because of PermaClean 100’s fast cure time (72 hours), Vaughn Engineering was able to proceed with rebuilding the aeration filters and returning Sardis Water Authority to service. In the end, Sardis Water Authority received much-needed maintenance on its water filtration system while maintaining its customers’ water demands.
