The key improvement areas forming the fundament for development of induction based removal of coatings in storage tanks are: environment, health, safety, time and costs. Environment means less disposal and reduced handling (transport of grit, water and waste). Health and safety means less noise and harmful particles/dust in the air, less need of protective gear and safe in use. Time means increased stripping rates per hour, more efficient working conditions and shorter down time. The cost reduction comes from reduced logistics and waste handling, shorter down time, higher removal rates, less energy costs and less man hours. By replicating use of RPR induction heating combined with elements of robotic platforms used in competitive methods the project aim to double the stripping rate and reducing the energy consumption with more than 50 %.
