Industrial Panel Tanks

– 20 years of experience –

Industrial Panel Tanks was founded with a single goal in mind: to create a better water storage tank. Since then, we’ve expanded into a number of industries, including oil and petrochemicals, fire protection, agriculture, and, most recently, dry bulk. Because of our extensive experience, we can service a wide range of industries and provide bolted and welded storage tanks for a variety of applications.

Industrial panel tanks are containers used for storing gas, oil, water, and petrochemical products for industrial applications. Industrial storage tanks are available in a variety of sizes and shapes. They can be made of concrete, stone, fiberglass, steel, or plastic and can be underground, horizontal, or vertical. Industrial panel tanks are classified into several types based on the contents and other factors.

Tanks for Industrial Fuel

Industrial fuel storage tanks, also known as petroleum tanks, can hold a variety of fluids. They are typically used to store non-organic and organic liquids. They can also hold vapor and other flammable fluids. Fuel storage tanks come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They are intended to hold a wide range of fuels, vapors, and industrial liquids.

Industrial Fuel Storage Tank Types:

Aboveground tanks and underground tanks are the two main types of fuel storage tanks.

Aboveground Fuel Storage Tanks

Because of their low long-term maintenance and upfront costs, aboveground fuel tanks (AST) are very popular. These tanks are less expensive to install than underground tanks because they do not require backfilling, deep excavation, or pavement of more involved piping.

When compared to below-ground tanks, above-ground fuel tanks are easier to maintain. You can easily inspect them for leaks and gain access to them for repairs. Aboveground fuel storage tanks are preferred for storing fuels and chemicals because of this.

Underground Storage Tanks

At least 10% of the tank's stored volume is buried underground in an underground storage tank (UST). Tanks used to store hazardous materials or fuels are regulated and must be registered with the EPA.

These tanks are ideal for people who want to maximize their property's space and/or value. Underground storage tanks can be installed beneath lawns and driveways, out of sight. These tanks are arguably safer because the possibility of an explosion is very low. However, because these tanks cannot be inspected on a regular basis, the possibility of leaks and pollution increases.

Advantages of Using Fuel Storage Tanks:

If your company requires the safe storage of fuel and other flammable liquids, an industrial fuel storage tank is essential. Chemical, solvent, oil, petrol, diesel, and other hazardous and flammable liquids are safely stored in industrial fuel storage tanks, which are standard-certified containers. Fuel storage tanks limit evaporative emissions while also preventing any leakage of the substance contained within them.

These storage tanks are manufactured and designed to meet industry standards, making them an efficient and dependable option for storing hazardous substances. The following are some of the benefits of using industrial fuel storage tanks:

01. Cost-effective

Using a fuel storage tank saves money because your employees do not have to leave the office to refuel equipment or vehicles. This saves both money and time that would otherwise be spent refueling outside of your business premises. These tanks have a storage capacity ranging from 1,000 to 110,000 liters, allowing you to store petrol and fuel based on the amount needed weekly or daily.

02. Variety

There are various types of fuel storage tanks available. Above-ground fuel storage tanks and underground fuel storage tanks are the two main types. These kinds have already been discussed.

Self-bunded tanks are another type of industrial fuel storage tank. Because of its durability, this type of tank is widely used. The self-bunded storage tank, with double steel walls, prevents spillage of the substance contained within it. The storage capacity of self-bunded tanks and above-ground tanks is typically between 1,000 and 150,000 liters.

03. Versatility

An industrial fuel storage tank can hold a variety of flammable liquids. If your storage needs are very specific, inform your manufacturer because they may customize or adjust tank specifications and models to meet your specific needs. Furthermore, industrial fuel storage tanks are simple to install. Some of the models are also portable, allowing for easy relocation when necessary.

Industrial Chemical Storage Tanks

Types of Industrial Chemical Storage Tanks:

Stainless steel storage tanks

are efficient and long-lasting, but they are not suitable for many acids and are the most expensive option.

Fiberglass tanks

are appropriate for certain applications. However, they have leaky seams, require more maintenance, are more prone to human error because they are handcrafted, and are susceptible to certain chemicals such as hydrofluorosilicic acid, which etches glass (the structural component of FRP).

Polyethylene storage tanks,

which are available in both cross-linked and linear polyethylene, are the most versatile industrial storage tanks on the market.

Industrial Oil Storage Tanks

Types of Industrial Oil Storage Tanks:

Floating Roof Tank

The floating roof tank, as the name implies, consists of a floating roof that falls or rises in response to the level of oil in the tank. The floating roof in this type of tank has been incorporated as a safety feature to prevent the build-up of vapor inside the tank.

Fixed Roof Tank

The stored oil is not exposed in the fixed roof tank. This tank type is used to hold oil products in smaller quantities than tanks with floating roofs.

Bunded Tank

Bunded tanks are surrounded by another tank or have a containment dike around them. The containment dike or outer tank serves as a catch system, preventing leaks, oil spills, and other types of oil contamination from spreading into the surrounding environment.

Single Skin & Double Skin Tanks

A single-skin tank has one layer of plastic or steel, while a double-skin tank has two layers. Tanks with two skins are also known as twin-walled tanks.

Open Top Tank

Previously, this type of industrial oil storage tank was used. Its use is now restricted due to evaporation losses and the risk of oil catching fire.

Industrial Hot Water Storage Tanks

ASME-certified industrial hot water storage tanks are designed for use in industrial applications that require a constant supply of hot water. During low-demand periods, water is heated and stored inside the water storage tank, ready to be used when there is a high demand for hot water. This allows for efficient energy use while also providing hot food when needed.

Because of its high specific heat capacity, water is an excellent medium for heat storage. In comparison to other substances, water can store more heat per unit of weight. Water is also inexpensive and non-toxic.

An industrial hot water storage tank that is well-insulated can keep the stored heat for several days, lowering fuel costs. These industrial storage tanks may include an integrated oil or gas burner system as well as electric immersion heaters. Certain types of hot water tanks, like a central heating system, use an external heat exchanger. These tank types may also use heated water from a different energy source.

Industrial Water and Liquid Storage Tanks

Water and liquid storage tanks are used to store liquids such as kerosene, jet A, diesel, gasoline, and waste oil, as well as for underground burial and pressurized applications. There are various types of liquid storage tanks, each with its own set of applications.

Industrial Plastic Storage Tanks

Water storage is essential for domestic, residential, industrial, and commercial applications. Plastic water storage tanks are one of the best conventional water storage options. Plastic tanks are lighter, more durable, and take up less space than cement and concrete tanks. Furthermore, plastic tanks are more adaptable than traditional storage tanks. Because of these benefits, plastic water tanks are a popular choice.

Industrial Gas Storage Tanks

Most materials that are in a gaseous state at room temperature and pressure are supplied in the form of compressed gas. Using a gas compressor and piping systems, the gas is compressed into pressure vessels for storage (such as tube trailers, gas cylinders, or gas canisters). Gas cylinders are the most common type of gas storage container, with a large number being manufactured at “cylinder fill” facilities.

However, not all industrial gases are supplied in gaseous form. Some gases are vapors, which can be liquified under pressure alone at room temperature, so these gases can also be supplied in the form of a liquid in a suitable container. Because of this phase change, these gases can be used as ambient refrigerants.

This information will give you a brief idea of the different types of industrial storage tanks. Industrial tanks have a wide range of applications. However, industrial tank owners and users should ensure that adequate safety measures are taken to maintain the tanks in a safe and secure condition.
