Ace Metal Finishing Successfully Powder Coats Large Industrial Tanks

Project showcases Ace Metal Finishing's expanding capabilities.

Ace Metal Finishing is pleased to announce the successful completion of a powder coating job of large tanks to be used in industrial parts washing applications. These 500-lb formed and welded tanks measure 14 feet long, 4 feet wide, and 8 feet high.

When the customer approached Ace Metal Finishing about the job they, were searching for a solution to their problem. The client needed eight very large tanks, all powder coated with an architectural fluropolymer custom color. Furthermore, these tanks needed to withstand high heat, high pressure, humidity, and have good chemical resistance as these were to be used in the parts washing industry.
Since Ace Metal Finishing has the capacity to powder coat large objects, up to 24 feet long and up to 3,000 lbs, the client was able to fabricate their tanks prior to powder coating. This ability improved the client’s efficiency and lead time. Ace Metal Finishing says it is one of the few companies in the U.S. that can accommodate such large items for powder coating.
“This customer came to Ace looking for a solution,” said Mike Bataglia, vice president of sales and marketing at Ace Metal Finishing. “They had a contract for a large parts washer system that needed powder coating. Full coverage was critical making post finishing assembly questionable. Due to the size of our oven and crane capacity, they not only could ship us the tanks fully fabricated before finishing, but we were able to run several of them in succession and allowed them to meet the project deadline.”
Ace Metal Finishing was able to turn these tanks around on time, in five days.
