Bolted stainless steel tanks do not require coating and by using a stainless steel tank, you’re guaranteed a maintenance-free storage facility and years of use. In fact, AWWA compliant bolted stainless steel tanks, have a long expected life of 40-plus years which for any production facility means significant cost savings over time.
Bolted Stainless Steel Tank Uses
AWWA Potable Water Tanks: Potable water storage tanks provide storage solutions for a variety of clear water containment applications for water that can be consumed without concern for adverse health effects. Available as Standard Style Cylindrical tanks and also as: Reservoirs – Standpipes – Elevated Tanks – Fire Protection Tanks.
Non-Potable Water Storage Tanks: Stainless Steel Bolted Tanks are ideal for use as clarifiers, equalization tanks, SBR tanks, weirs, filter tanks, and secondary containment tanks, which provide storage options for the containment, storage, and processing of wastewater, re-use water, run-off water, and fire protection water.
Dry Storage tanks or silos provide storage for a wide variety of dry or bulk products including corn, sand, powders, sugar, grain, cement, gravel, wood chips, plastic products, or a variety of other, non-liquid, low-level humidity or water-content products. Bolted stainless steel tanks are an ideal solution for storing and protecting dry products because of their flexibility and durability. Bolted, stainless steel tanks also have low repair costs, coupled with a high resale value and extraordinary durability for wind-related issues as well as seismic engineering.
Food Storage – Grain tanks: flat bottom and cone-bottomed (hopper) – Dry Product storage – Dry Product Process tanks – Other Industrial dry storage, i.e. wood chips
Innovative Design and Functional Extras
Appurtenances: Our Bolted Stainless Steel Tanks are complete with a long list of appurtenances or accessories that can be added to any of our tank installations. These additions include Aluminum Geodesic Dome Roofs, Roof Venting, and Roof hatches, Manways for Roofs, – Insulation Packages, Catwalks, Level indicators, and heaters, A wide variety of roof styles including flat-style, knuckle-style, or pitched. We can also add ladders or spiral stairways, Cages as well as Step-off platforms, Exterior web trusses, Down comers, Angle stiffeners, Baffle walls, Styles over containment walls, Bridges for mixers, Anti-vortex plates and Sumps
Roofs & Domes: We offer a variety of roofs and domes of stainless steel and aluminum up to 200 feet in diameters for a variety of purposes, to include: Odor and gas control – Protection of tank contents – Minimization of the “sloshing” of tank contents – Evaporation control – Contaminant protection from weather and environment – Access to the center of the tank – Equipment support
Roof Designs can include: Flat-style, knuckle-style, 1:12 pitch, conical, an aluminum geodesic dome or a retrofit on an existing tank. Some roofs are self-supporting, while others (typically in excess of 40’ in diameter) are column supported or a geodesic dome. We are also able to make replacement stainless steel roofs for existing coated steel buildings. All standard roof sizes can be fabricated or a custom fit created. Our roofs are designed to utilize standard hardware such as breather bag rails, hatches, vents, catwalks, and center nest rings.
