Koerner has more than 25 years of experience and research, worldwide patents, and customers in 50 countries worldwide.
In 1990 Galco were updating their main Galvanizing Plant which was
built in the early 70’s and considered all aspects of Process Tanks
particularly life to first maintenance and having inspected Koerner
tanks installed in plants in Austria, we made up our minds there and then the life expectancy
favoured spending slightly higher capital amount on tanks and today in
2010 – 20 years
on – we are using the same tanks with minimal amounts of maintenance
mainly caused by damage inflicted by the product through-put and over the
20 years some of these tanks have handled in excess of 360,000 tonnes of steel.
Today our tanks are in good order and will need we believe minimal attention over the next 5-10 years. Just imagine tanks leaking, loss of chemical, the disruption to work and planning, the maintenance costs involved in some cases lifting out the tanks and replacing. This would have been a major issue had we not the foresight to invest in this tested and proven quality product.
The proof lies in the fact that we installed a set of tanks in a new No 2 Galvanizing Plant in the year 2001, again, confidence in the product that we bought from Koerner.
