Coatings manufacturer Carboline (St. Louis, Missouri, USA) recently introduced key enhancements to the company’s Wastewater Asset Protection Guide. With the program, users can build upon their water and wastewater coating knowledge with a holistic view of the typical municipal water and wastewater infrastructure, according to the company.
The completed guide allows users to virtually travel through the wastewater collection and treatment process and the drinking water treatment, transmission, and storage phases. Each structure features multiple coating and lining options, including many of Carboline’s UL/NSF 61-600 certified products.
This interactive tool caters to specifiers, asset owners, contractors, and those who desire to learn more about protective coatings and their use in the water/wastewater infrastructure.
“With the recent announcements concerning investments in our nation’s infrastructure, an even greater emphasis is now being placed on how to protect the various structures within the water/wastewater infrastructure,” says Brian Cheshire, water/wastewater market manager at Carboline.
“We feel that the completion of this guide will give the user a more comprehensive portrait of the various assets within the water/wastewater infrastructure,” Cheshire adds. “As was the case with the original announcement, we firmly believe it can be used as a great source of information and as an educational tool. Carboline offers a complete portfolio of coatings and linings for this market segment, and the completion of this tool accurately highlights that.”
Processes identified within guide include:
- Wastewater preliminary and primary treatment
- Wastewater treatment plant operations buildings (interior and exterior)
- Secondary containment (water and wastewater treatment)
- Chemical storage (water and wastewater treatment)
Meanwhile, water treatment and water storage structures recently added to the guide include coagulation; flocculation; sedimentation; filtration; disinfection; pipe galleries; booster pump stations; and various construction styles of water tanks, both for interior and exterior systems.
Finally, substrates featured within the guide are steel, concrete, ductile iron, and concrete masonry units (CMU).
