Ocean Spray’s plant in Middleborough, Massachusetts, required repair. Its floors and small lift station suffered from cracks and corrosion. The plant’s floor also needed to be sloped so excess water could reach its drain.
Ocean Spray contracted A&W Coatings to use Warren’s 501-SL epoxy product to resolve their issues. Due to the scope, the A&W crew mobilized at the plant for three weeks, each week dedicated to a different portion of the project. This schedule was ideal for minimizing disruption to the facility’s operations.
A&W had to transform an 18-foot by 14-foot portion of the concrete floor into a sloped angle created entirely out of Warren’s 501-SL blended with aggregate. The lift station, measuring at 4-feet by 4-feet, was a confined space underneath the plant’s main area. Being underground, the A&W crew had to line the small lift station with 250 mils before working on the floors. With the sloped floor and lift station lined and cured, the crew applied 70 mils of the 501-SL coating along two additional floor areas using a rolling application method. The total surface area coated was 42-feet by 40-feet.
With the new coatings and sloped floor in place, Ocean Spray’s plant became fully protected from future corrosion and damage from excess water, keeping the plant operational and avoiding costly downtime for future repairs.
