The safe seven
THE SAFE TPS
PROCESSen

tps-01-en

Revolutionary tank sealing:
Liquid Power Plate (LPP) – the solution for water-polluting substances! No more welding = no more risk! LPP, the 100% metal substitute with strong adhesive properties, directly joins to the tank. Leaks are force-sealed with LPP.

As the final touch, the TPS system offers complete protection. LPP hardens quickly, producing a pressure-tight surface. There’s no need to wait around for the final pressure test. LPP and TPS – the future of tank sealing!

Seven steps to safety:
Durable protection for dome shafts.

1. CLEANING

of the dome shaft and removal of water or Antifrogen; blasting the surface with dry ice after pre-treatment with an abrasive medium to remove any existing corrosion products from the metal surface

2. LEAK DETECTION

Uncovering damaged areas and preparing the tank walls for further treatment

3. LIQUID POWER PLATE

Force-locking in the cold process; the dome cover is force-sealed with a pressure-tight metal polymer to correct metal scarring due to corrosion or crack bridging in the metal

4. SEALING RESIN

Vinyl-ester sealing resin is applied to the prepared dome cover

5. CARBON FIBRE-MESH

The carbon fibre-mesh is inserted and reinforcing material is soaked to produce a homogeneous connection to the substrate, the laminate is vented

6. SEALING RESIN

The second layer of vinyl-ester sealing resin is applied to the pre-treated surface

7. COATING

Once the laminate has dried, the entire dome shaft is coated with a DIBt approved, liquid-tight, chemical-resistant, flexible coating from our partner Wolftank Deutschland: EPOFLEX DOMR DIBT approval, AbZ-59.41-354

safety first –
SAFETY IS OUR
TOP PRIORITY

IMPRESSIVELY RELIABLE

TAKING RESPONSIBILITY
FOR PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Working on tank facilities, silos and in confined spaces requires a high level of safety. We prioritise not only the safety of our customers, but also the safety of our employees. Our team receives extensive training and ongoing learning in line with the strict requirements of German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV).

Training and passing the exam ‘expert for the clearance measurement of vessels and confined spaces’ in accordance with DGUV rule 113-004 is mandatory for all employees.

We conduct regular training at our premises. During their sessions, employees learn how to safely work with the latest measuring devices to minimise the risk involved in working on dome shafts or silos. This helps avoid potentially dangerous situations.

The sessions also cover key rescue methods to rescue injured or unconscious people from confined spaces.

PRECISE PLANNING,
SEAMLESS COORDINATION

  • Detailed discussion of the construction project with experts – we explain all details and contingencies to make sure our customers can follow every step of our work with full transparency.
  • HSSE-oriented planning for comprehensive safety: Before work starts, we coordinate all measures to ensure health, occupational safety, safety and environmental protection with the petrol station operator in line with the pertinent regulations. Our aim is to create a safe work environment and proactively combat potential risks.
  • Alignment and coordination with external companies and subcontractors: In order to ensure a seamless work process, scheduling and collaborations for the individual work are carefully planned and coordinated to avoid delays.
  • Extensive documentation and complete approvals – the customer receives all documents and photographic records.
