PROBLEM
Fabricated composite tanks needed to withstand media and temperature fluctuations to treat sewage at customer sites which required massive 80 ft. diameter gaskets. 

APPLICATION DETAILS

  • Fluctuating internal and external temperatures
  • Hydrogen sulfide media
  • Internal vacuum
  • IBC Occupancy Risk Category: III

SOLUTION
Gallagher engineers reviewed the parameters and developed an interlocking EPDM gasket that allowed for sealing of the large containment vessel.
