Repair of tanks in Bulgaria: 2 main methods and other types of services

There are 2 methods of repairing a plastic tank: extrusion and bar sealing (soldering with a heat gun). Other methods (such as using glue, sealant, sealing foam, etc.) are not effective.

Soldering of gas tanks has its own features. Before repairing a gas tank, it must be removed from a car. Some gas tanks can be repaired without removing it from a car, it depends on the kind of damage andthe spot of leak.

Plastic water tanks don’t requirespecial preparation before repair works. They must be dry, the damaged spot must be protected fromliquid ingress and cleaned from dirt depositions (if there are any).

Extrusion method of repairing a tank

Repair is carried out with special equipment. Extrusion method is used to repair loaded objects (tractor gas tanks, tanks of trucks and cars, tanks with a capacity of more than 0.5 cubic meters and pressure tanks). Products don’t lose their operational and strength properties after welding. The lifetime of repaired tanks is not limited.

Hot air soldering
(with a heat gun and a plastic additive)

This method is less effective. It is usually used to solder not heavily loaded plastic objects. The lifetime of a product after soldering is about 1 month (depending on the level of loading). Due to overheating of repaired spot, this method is not as durable as extrusion method, but its undeniable advantage is lower cost.

Professional restoration of a plastic tank is carried out in the shortest period of time. If required, repair of a tank can be carried out on site in Varna and other cities across Bulgaria.

Most of modern building construction equipment, cars and tractors are supplied with plastic fuel tanks, which can crack and break for a variety of reasons. The cost of fuel tanks is quite high, and, in addition, it can take much time to order, manufacture and deliver a product. The price of repair services allows to avoid spending much money, it also allows to restore damaged fuel tank with minimal loss. Welding of fuel tanks will take about an hour of your time.

The customer must provide some special conditions for welding of a gas tank (fuel tank): the tank must be drained from fuel (remove a lid and open other openings for several hours, keep it open while transporting so that petrol or diesel fumes could come out). We offer soldering of gas tanks and tanks of trucks, cars, snowmobiles, buses, articulated lorries, delivery trucks, mobile cranes and special equipment.

Repair of plastic fuel tank is carried out with the use of hand welding extruders. Welding technology allows to repair containers and gas tanks, which are manufactured from almost any type of material.

Is it possible to repair a tank by yourself?

It is impossible to renovate polyethylene fuel tanks on your own. Looking for something to glue a plastic container doesn’t make sense. Glue for polyethylene and polypropylene doesn’t exist. Manufacturers, who claim that glue or sealant is able to seal up cracks in these materials, aren’t really honest with you. Polyethylene and polypropylene can be repaired only with welding technology. Necessary quality assurance and tightness of fuel tanks can be achieved only with extrusion method. Soldering of a plastic tank doesn’t require special conditions, a tank must be drained. Are you thinking of sealing up a plastic tank? Don’t hurry! Polyethylene and polypropylene containers can’t be glued because of a number of their characteristics. Sealant, glue and epoxy resins will not help you to deal with the problem, and restoration of a product will be more expensive because of a decline in the quality of the surface of a product due to unprofessional repair works.
