Tank Refurbishing

System for the cost-effective refurbishing or volume expansion of containers or tanks

Changing conditions, material wear, a change to the filling medium – these are just a few of the factors that lead to the replacement of tanks used in industry or at municipal sewage treatment plants. Quantities change and existing tanks become too small – these are also problems that frequently arise.

In such cases, the mobile machine technology from Lipp using the LIPP Double-Seam System or the LIPP welding technique offers a solution that is as simple as it is cost-effective, while being extraordinarily stable. Tanks can be installed on site in any size required and can be placed in an existing steel or reinforced concrete basin using a mobile crane. The existing tank volume is utilised, eliminating the need for expensive demolition work.

Openings and leadthroughs of any size and shape can be installed, even in the event of subsequent upgrades. There is a wide range of peripheral accessories available for the technical equipment of the tank:

  • Roof insulation
  • Pumping systems
  • Flexible mixing technology
  • Inspection glasses
  • Stairways, ladders, platforms, connection pieces, manholes, etc.

Rage of materials to choose from

There is also a range of materials to choose from for the tank itself so that it can be optimally matched to the intended application. VERINOX®, the combination material developed by Lipp consisting of galvanised steel (for the outside of steel tanks) and stainless steel (for the inside of tanks), is characterised in particular by the excellent cost-benefit ratio that it offers.
