Industrial Water & Chemical Storage Tanks

Industrial water and chemical tanks serve a variety of purposes. They need to be strong and non-reactive with the chemicals they contain. Enduramaxx plastic rotationally moulded tanks are made from polyethene (PE) or Polypropylene (PP) according to which chemicals are to stored, and they are UV stabilised to withstand many years of outside use.

What chemicals are commonly stored?

The PP or PE material the chemical tanks are made from allows many chemicals to be stored safely since they are non-reactive and corrosive resistant. Industrial water tanks may contain many hazardous chemicals.

Here is a list of then more commonly stored chemicals:

  • Ferric sulphate and ferric chloride
  • Polymers and PAC
  • Aluminium sulphate

This is by no means the extent of the chemicals that can be stored in Polyethylene and Polypropylene. The extent of the resistance to corrosion of both Polyethylene and Polypropylene is often surprising to those who have historically used stainless steel or GRP.

The ability to withstand chemical effects on all surfaces, without the limit of fill cycles or chemical reaction, makes rotationally moulded tanks ideal for chemical storage.

Equipment Mounting, Pipework and Customisation For Chemical Tanks

These industrial chemical tanks are available with customised fittings and flanges. These include BSP inlets and outlets, PN16 and ANSI flanges, welded socketsvents and fume proof lids for fuming chemicals.  Liquid level sensor assemblies,  fill pipes and suction pipes are available terminating in BSP and flanged connections.

Bolt down feet is available to bolt the tank in place. For use as a mixer tank, we have a range of industrial mixers and mixer bridges here.

Bunded Tanks or Double Walled Chemical Storage Tanks

Some plastic chemical tanks require bunding to ensure legislative compliance so a range of bunded tanks, double-walled tanks or often called double confinement chemical storage tanks are available. These tanks offer storage capacity with an integral bund. A liquid confinement space that can contain 110% of the volume of the inner tank. More details on the bunded chemical tanks are available here.

Our range of plastic tanks includes industrial chemical and water treatment tanks, chemical tanks, underground water tanks, water storage tanks and drinking water tanks manufactured from WRAS approved polymer.

The Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI) under the umbrella of the UK Government’s DEFRA (Department for Environmental, Food and Rural Affairs) states that; “Protection of public health of consumers through safeguarding the quality of drinking water is a key aspect of the drinking water quality regulatory framework” Regulation 31 ensures that water suppliers, when producing and distributing drinking water, only use products and substances that do not cause any detrimental effects on the safety or quality of the drinking water.
