EDG Air Starting Tank

At a north eastern power plant, their diesel air starting tanks have experienced corrosion in the form of scale and other by-products due to moisture from the compressed air that maintains their air pressure. One of the diesel air starting tanks would be available for refurbishment during their refueling outage. The power plant decided to use CSI’s CFRP system to fix and prevent the corrosion. CSI used a specialized abrasive blasting system call the “Blast & Vac” to obtain the required profile for the CFRP system. This system is capable of producing a NACE No.2/SSPC-10 , near white metal profile, without leaving grit inside the tank. The CFRP system was installed, and the air starting tank was restored to working condition.
