Tank chime sealing - Practical method

Tank chime sealing - Practical method

Tank chime sealing - Practical method

Dear members,
Hope everyone been good,
Happy new year as well,
I was researching for a way to seal the tank chime between the concrete ring and the underside of the tank bottom.
Now I have found few ways and few suggestions and suppliers like Belzona and Denso.
But i am more interested to know what is the most effective and cost effective method to do that based on the opinion of field engineers.

Detailing is a hobby,

RE: Tank chime sealing - Practical method

If you look API 650 Clause 5.4.5 is for drip ring.(.....If specified on the Data Sheet, Line 12, a foundation drip ring shall be provided to prevent ingress of water between the tank bottom and foundation. Unless the Purchaser specifies otherwise, the ring shall meet the following requirements (see Figure 5.5).

I will suggest you to look to the following docs and consult with an expert for the mastic sealant application.
