Galvanizing would probably provide the toughest finish. Are you sure that
those sections are "far too big to be galvanized"? The tanks that I have
seen are very large. Perhaps an epoxy paint may work.

I'm going to assume that too many assumed I'd not read the thread on
Cold Galvanizing. That is not the paint I want, it's to fragile
mechanically although it "might" work as an undercoat.
Most crank ups are galvanized and just let each section rub on the ones
next to it as the galvanizing itself makes a relatively good lubricant.
They are also relatively small
Paint, in general, does not survive well under these conditions.
Unfortunately I'm not left a lot of choice as the sections are far too
big to have them galvanized (up to 4' on a face and 24-26 feet long)
