Tanks & Piping

Tanks & Piping, Water, Gas, Oil, PenstockTanks & Piping (Water, Gas, Oil, Penstock)

Storage tanks, penstock, piping and pipe racks often present challenging application conditions due to their complex configuration and difficult access. PUM has the expertise to design and install all types of climbing and rigging apparatus to prepare and paint even the most complicated structures. Our SSPC- QP1 "Paint Application to Complex Structures" certification confirms our proven experience and capabilities. Many times these structures were painted with lead pigmented coatings that must be disturbed or removed. Our SSPC-QP2 "Hazardous Paint Removal" certification again indicates our ability to successfully undertake this challenge.

Our crews are trained and experienced in the application of a wide range of protective coating types using all appropriate application methods; this, combined with the rigorous safety training and climbing certifications of our employees, makes PUM exceptionally qualified to provide corrosion control solutions to these unique structures.

Even though we are not required by law or specifications, we carry a $10,000,000 Pollution Liability Insurance policy to protect our customers.
