Disrupting the world of coating storage tanks

Page last modified
November 25 2022

10Q is the industry's first automated paint robot that transforms the manual method of coating large-scale storage tanks into a fully controlled, efficient, and safe process without any overspray. The 10Q robot is specifically designed to generate the most value for storage tank asset owners and coating companies. Our solution also enables clients to have full control over every aspect of the automated painting process while keeping the safety of people and the planet in mind.

During the application process, the workers can operate the robot from a safe distance on the ground using the user-friendly control system while receiving reports on parameters such as layer thickness, coating speed and temperature. This semi-automated coating technique reduces the number of working hours at dangerous heights by up to 80%, minimizing the risks of possible injuries caused by working on suspended platforms and scaffolding. 

10Q robots are equipped with the patented spray shielding system that eliminates overspray, making the spray coating process safer for workers and the environment. The technology also ensures a high transfer efficiency of about 90%, reducing paint waste and thus costs.

Since the first test pilot in late 2019, our 10Q robots have been deployed in multiple demonstrations and coating projects in tank terminals in the Netherlands, UK and USA.
