Painted Anchor chair

Painted Anchor chair

Painted Anchor chair

Hi all,

water storage Tank . During blasting and painting of the tank, blasting and painting team not knowing blasted and painted all anchor chairs with its thread in full. To close NCR issued by Owner no idead whatr to write down on it . Pls smb tell corrective action some good technical words . Owner agreed to close NCR , actually it will not affect to future settlement of the tank, because bolts can be screwed still.

RE: Painted Anchor chair

Anchor chairs are typically there to resist uplift from wind and/or seismic events and perhaps from flooding of the impoundment area. Normally the nuts are snug tight. Anchored tanks should be shimmed and grouted to the concrete foundation and they will settle with the foundation. Assuming they are properly tightened and not loose with gaps, painting them should not affect their ability to serve this function. I think you can safely ignore the painting and move on.

RE: Painted Anchor chair

Just one line for the correective action - "removed the excess paint manually using emery paper".

Now, the client should happily close the NCR.

By the way, is the client somewhere in the middle east? Then I might know the guy who could have raised such an NCR.


RE: Painted Anchor chair

I don't understand why it is necessary to remove paint from anchor chairs.
