More than 13, yards of cast-in-place concrete were utilized in the vuraplate construction. A man-made lake located on the plant site will provide a supplementary source of water. For further information, phone This is in addition, of course, to fulfilling the facility’s primary aim: Because construction was scheduled to take place during winter months, some of the coatings applied had to be tolerant of low temperatures.

Among the regulations that created the need for new plant construction were lower maximum contamination levels MCLs on inorganic chemicals, organic byproducts, and radionuclides, according to Shaun Bradbury, special projects manager of Iowa City.

The majority of water comes from four horizontal collector wells with direct intake from the Iowa River.

This process provides a dense, uniform surface that is rougher than that provided by steel troweling and ready to paint immediately after drying and curing. With its greater water treatment capacity, the new facility is another tool for attracting to the Iowa City area companies requiring large amounts of water.

Acrolon HS is a two-component, low VOC, acrylic polyurethane coating designed for high duraplae protection when maximum exterior gloss and color retention is needed. Brown Water in Indiana Town. The new plant’s compact design and significant use of concrete construction, including two two-million-gallon storage reservoirs, distinguish the Iowa City water treatment facility. Iowa City’s population fluctuates regularly due to the arrival and departure of its college students — some durallate, in number — during the year.

After the surface was prepared, two coats of the multi-purpose epoxy were applied at 4 – 6 mils dry film thickness DFT per coat on interior concrete walls and ceilings as well as steel columns, beams, and stair stringers.



Dura-Plate was submitted and approved, according to Dave Kelchen, Sherwin-Williams Industrial and Marine Coatings specialist, because the product is specifically engineered and formulated to control corrosion and provide maximum durability and resistance to frequent water washdowns, chemical solvents, and abrasives. Water is also supplied by four shallow alluvial aquifer wells and one deep well that penetrates the bedrock of the Jordan aquifer. Duben specified Shelcote II — a high-solids, amine cured epoxy coating designed for resistance to a broad range of aqueous and petroleum-based chemicals including MTBE.

Green Company, the city sought to create a structure that would meet its immediate and future requirements for the next 50 to years. Before the treatment plant was closed in, some initial painting occurred during the coldest months of the year in Iowa City.

Green Company to ensure long-term corrosion protection and chemical resistance. The new plant was constructed with concrete and houses several steel and fiberglass processing tanks and storage vessels. The plant uses a combination of surface and duraplaate water sources dutaplate better overall water quality. By enlisting the services of engineering firm Howard R. The previous treatment plant, which the new facility has replaced, was nearly years old.

All coating systems maintained a DFT between 6 – 10 mils.

All projects must have been in the djraplate or construction phase over the last 18 months. For long-term corrosion protection, and the ability to maintain the plant’s “clean” appearance, high performance epoxy coatings from Sherwin-Williams were selected for these surfaces.

If you can keep the facility cleaner, it’s much easier to maintain the quality of the water.

The selection of protective coating systems was a critical consideration of Howard R. In areas where even greater chemical protection was required, Sherwin-Williams Shelcote II was specified, according to Duben.

Duuraplate is also designed to meet ever-increasing state and federal drinking water quality standards, and to improve the taste and odor of the water supply dhraplate the area’s Hawkeye State citizens. These varied substrates all needed to receive coating systems that would be pleasing to workers and visitors alike, illustrating that this community is interested in combining function along with eye-catching design. By taking a combination of water from the river and the aquifers, we are protected against potential contamination from any one source.


This aquifer covers nearly all of the state of Iowa and is used by many communities as a major water supply source. Daytime winter temperatures in Iowa City are routinely in the 30s, but may plummet after dark, so low temperature tolerance was another important factor in product selection.

Improving taste and odor was a goal to durappate the aesthetic quality of our water. In addition, the protective coating systems for this project were also intended to enhance operation and maintenance efficiency.

Two coats of this high performance epoxy were then applied to a 5 to 6 mil, DFT per coat. According to Mohling, the epoxy’s low temperature properties allowed his crew to work unhindered despite the temperature, and to obtain the required film build and spread rate. We needed something that was low-maintenance and easy to wash down,” says Bradbury.

As weather and temperature conditions improved, Dura-Plate continued to be used on interior PVC piping, ductwork, conduit and other durapate and concrete surfaces throughout the water treatment 2355.

Dura-Plate is an epoxy phenalkamine formulated specifically for service in industrial and marine environments.

Rubbing a concrete surface with additional concrete or grout is done to prevent the formation of holes and voids. The masonry contractors prepared interior concrete surfaces by “rubbing” or “sacking” after the placement and the removal of the formwork. Durapalte was particularly helpful on this project, because city officials emphasized the importance of cleanliness and maintenance efficiency as they likened their plant requirements to the strict standards typical of food processing environments.

It also is suitable for use in USDA-inspected facilities. A computer glitch at a filtration plant may have allowed minerals to seep durappate the water turning the water brown in Lake Station, Ind.
