A Midwest pet products manufacturer needed to find a way to place an abandoned concrete vessel back into service to allow them to capitalize on bulk purchasing discounts. TPU is a flexible polyurethane membrane liner primarily designed for containment of fuel, oils, hydrocarbons and fatty acids. TPU lining. The project included working through 24” manways for materials and equipment as well as lining through a 3” diameter by 23” long drain fitting. In order to fit the liner through the manway, the body of the liner was made in two pieces and then welded together in the field by Melvin Stein. The liner was mechanically fastened along the top by a polypropylene compression strip. “As the installer, I was able to have nearly all the lining seams made at Witt’s plant, providing best in class seam quality and reliability, while keeping labor costs down.” Because the liner is not adhered to the concrete, the issue of absorption of tallow into the concrete was not a concern. Installation of the liner was completed in only a few days and as soon as the liner was installed the vessel was ready for immediate use by the company.
