Prestressed concrete tanks

A prestressed concrete reservoir constructed by Preload for the City of Sheboygan earned a 2009 Decorative Concrete Design Award. The award was part of a prestigious program showcasing best uses of ready-mixed concrete in Wisconsin and Michigan's Upper Peninsula (UP). Six million gallons of clean water are now held in the reserve thanks to ready mixed concrete all cast on the jobsite. The project shows that cast-in-place concrete has many benefits including cost effective construction. Preload designs and constructs prestressed concrete tanks used for water, wastewater, chilled water and chemical storage facilities.

Floating cover systems

GTI's modular floating cover systems control algae and odors in tanks and lagoons. The durable, UV protected covers float on the water in a tank or lagoon and block sunlight, thus controlling algae growth. The covers can also be used to provide insulation and reduce odors. The covers are custom-fabricated to fit your application and can be removed and reinstalled.

Cathodic protection

Engineers at Farwest Corrosion Control Co. have patented a cathodic protection (CP) controller for steel water tank applications that uses the energy generated by the magnesium anodes and an isolated copper electrode to power the controller and automatically regulate the tank to water voltage potential in a galvanic CP system. The PowerMag controller then automatically adjusts anode current to maintain a constant IR free tank-to-water potential. Using the latest in electronic digital technology, the control circuit operates on as little as 3 milliamperes drain from the anode system.
