After installation, the insulation is clad with a galvanized
steel jacket secured with #8 sheet metal screws and painted with 2

IMPORTANT: Minor shipping damage is more noticeable on jacketed
tanks due to the uniform finish and the nature of the jacket. Extra
lugs are installed on jacketed vessels for securing the tanks during
shipment and they are normally palletized and shipped on a flat bed.
Even so, minor cosmetic damage can occur and must be considered normal.
