Wastewater Tank Lining & Repair
Amtech’s cutting-edge DuraChem® 500 series Spray Up Polylining systems are like Industrial Strength Tupperware separating the structural wall of a tank from the wastewater stream.
Wastewater treatment plants provide critical community services that too many people take for granted. Unfortunately, thousands of wastewater tanks and containments at treatment plants throughout the United States are reaching the end of their coatings’ and linings’ functional service life. At AmTech, we provide wastewater tank lining services and a full range of tank coating and repair solutions. Whether you’re looking for steel tank lining, fiberglass tank lining, or tank coating and tank painting, we’ve got you covered.

Restoring Wastewater Treatment Plants With Industrial Wastewater Tank Coating
Having restored hundreds of waste water treatment plant tanks to full function, the AmTech team knows that each component of a plant’s system faces unique challenges. The sand and other solids removed by the system can create abrasion on the tank’s interior surfaces leading to lining and coating failure. Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) corrosion can attack tank head spaces. Corrosion can also damage clarifier and digester tanks.
Once the wastewater tank coating or lining has failed, the steel or concrete substrates can quickly corrode or degrade, leaving the wastewater treatment plant with an expensive facilities nightmare. In the past, the accepted protocol was to apply another thin mil coating system, like an epoxy, and then start the clock on its road to eventual failure.
Municipal and Industrial Wastewater Tank Lining
Today, newer technologies allow for the application of cutting-edge wastewater tank lining systems that provide excellent resistance to the corrosive and degradative liquids and gases found in wastewater streams, including all municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants. AmTech’s DuraChem® 500 series Spray Up Polylining systems become like industrial-strength Tupperware bonded inside the structure, virtually separating the structural wall from the harsh environment of that wastewater stream. This can save tens of thousands of dollars in capital replacement costs and virtually eliminate the traditional peeling and flaking of thin mil, rigid coatings.
Frequently Asked Questions About Wastewater Tank Lining
How Long Does Wastewater Tank Lining Last?
Inferior, wastewater tank lining lasts anywhere between three to five years. However, the lifespan depends on several factors, including the substrate preparation, the material used, the installation’s quality, and the tank’s operating conditions. Generally, a properly installed and maintained DuraChem® 500 series lining can last 10 years or more.
Can Wastewater Tank Lining be Repaired if it is Damaged?
Yes, the wastewater tank lining can be repaired if it is damaged. The type of repair required depends on the extent and location of the damage. Small cracks or punctures can often be repaired with a patch, while larger areas of damage may require a full relining.
What are the Benefits of Wastewater Tank Lining?
Wastewater tank lining provides several benefits, including preventing leaks and spills, protecting the tank from corrosion and damage, extending the tank’s lifespan, reducing facilities’ downtime, and reducing the risk of environmental contamination. Choosing a DuraChem lining instead of a coating can greatly extend your tank’s lifespan and reduce your annual maintenance costs.
