5 Reasons to Reconsider Tank and Infrastructure Repair Operations

5 Reasons to Reconsider Tank and Infrastructure Repair Operations

In 2021, OSHA is pushing harder than ever to reduce the number of injuries and fatal accidents contributed directly to welding and has labeled it a “high priority” in its operations.

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics declared that welding poses unique risks to over 500,000 workers due to explosions, falls, crushing, electrocutions and asphyxiations. (www.wcwelding.com)

With these grim realities, you need additional repair options to keep your operations safer and more efficient. USI is partnering with oil & gas professionals to:

  • Lower your overall maintenance cost and improve reliability
  • Avoid hazardous “Hot Work”, and eliminate corrosion cells caused by welding
  • Utilize the entire workforce with easy to use “cold weld” alternatives with simpler and faster maintenance procedures
  • Extend the life of fixed equipment, structures, rotating equipment, and machinery
  • Reduce and postpone capital expenditures

The more innovative companies in your industry are repairing, protecting, and upgrading their equipment and infrastructure with Resimac Epoxy coatings for: 

  • Corrosion protection
