Industries that need water storage tanks
Most of the industries in Spokane County will require water storage tanks for one purpose or another.
Municipalities require water for drinking and storage for wastewater. Also storage tanks for storm drain water gathering and holding.
Manufacturing and Aerospace will require water storage for drinking, cleaning, and several processing. They should also have a dedicated water storage tank for fire prevention and suppression.
Agriculture needs water for irrigation and livestock and a tank for fire prevention suppression. Storage tanks will also be used in the agricultural industry for wineries and to store fertilizers and pesticides. Another reason for tanks is storing milk.
Food processing and food packaging will also require water for certain processes. They will need tanks for storing other products like sugar, or corn syrup.
Rainwater harvesting tanks can help rural agriculture and municipalities with irrigation needs whether it is vegetables, fruits, or just common spaces and public gardens. Harvesting rainwater also helps the environment by reducing erosion and contamination of the drinking water supply.
Types of tanks available
Corrugated steel bolted tanks
What are the benefits of a corrugated steel bolted tank? There are several benefits that include:
- Corrugated steel bolted tanks can safely hold many products from dairy to chemicals.
- They can be lined with different liners depending on what product they will hold.
- Come in various capacities and sizes.
- Steel bolted tanks can be either above or underground.
What can you put in a corrugated steel bolted tank? Many products can be stored in these tanks including:
- Vegetable or fruit juices
- Dry products like sugar, flour, insecticides, fertilizers, and more.
They can also be used as containment or holding tanks. These holding tanks will be needed for wastewater treatment, irrigation, fire suppression, and more. Storm drain containment and filtering is another use.
Rainwater harvesting is a good use of corrugated steel bolted tanks. That is because they come in various sizes and capacities. The rain water can then be used to irrigate public parks and municipal gardens or residential and agricultural irrigation.
Wine making may require several tanks. One for storing the juice, one for fermentation, one or two for other ingredients that needs to be added. Also, there is the containment of the waste products from making wine.
Industries like aerospace can use these storage tanks to hold water or chemicals that are needed to manufacture plane parts or cleaning the factory. Flushing waste is another area that a tank can hold water for use.
What makes corrugated steel bolted tanks so great? They are built with durability and safety in mind. The average lifespan of one of these tanks is 30 to 35 years. They have an excellent warranty of up to 30 years.
Another reason these tanks are such a good choice is they cost less to replace than many other tanks. For example, a corrugated tank replacement cost for a 200,000 Gallon Complete tank installed is $150,000.00. The liner cost is between $7000-$18000 depending on the type.
The cost for an epoxy coated tank replacement of a 200,000 Gallon Complete tank installed is $200,000.00. Sandblast & Recoat $60,000.00 depending on liner.
As you can see a corrugated steel bolted tank is the best choice for many industries and processes.
