Shop Capabilities & Resources
If a tank or other part can be lifted by a crane and hauled over the road on a trailer, we can line it at our shop. Vulcan’s on-site resources include a 21,000 square foot shop on 2 acres with four (4) overhead cranes with a 10-ton load capacity. Parts larger than 14 feet in diameter or weighing more than 10 tons are lined in our yard and open/atmospherically or pressure steam cured.
VPL’s shop includes a dedicated sandblast facility, a 10ft x 10ft x 20ft cleaning oven, two compression-molding rubber presses and two autoclaves. The largest autoclave is capable of curing parts up to 9.5 feet in diameter and 24 feet in length depending upon the shape of the part. The cleaning oven allows our customers to extend the life of their existing parts and save money by reusing their existing steel infrastructure. Vulcan is able to offer substantial savings of time and money to our customers by removing the existing lining, repairing the steel (if necessary) and applying new lining to the existing steel.
Vulcan can spark test, repair and certify existing tanker linings of your over-the-highway tankers or completely strip and reline the tank, if required.
VPL can also handle your new steel fabrication needs. VPL provides turnkey fabrication, repair and rubber lining solutions for its customers.
