  • Industrial Plastic Storage Tank Uses

    Most industrial factories and manufacturing plants must have some form of storage tanks to store the materials to create the products, both before they are used in the manufacturing process and often during the process as well. Many companies use storage tanks made from natural materials, like metal, but metal tanks can get expensive and are extremely heavy. One alternative that many factories can use are plastic tanks that provide nearly the same properties and protective abilities as metal tanks. The world of plastic industrial tanks is so large, that...

  • Plastic Tanks' Place in Our Economy

    In 1844, the extremely-satisfied-looking fellow you see below, Charles Goodyear, patented the rubber vulcanization process, which is the process of curing rubber with sulfur or other curatives in order to improve its mechanical properties. The discovery of vulcanization could be described as the first step on the path to the development of thermosetting processes and thermoset materials, and those developments were precursors to the development of modern plastic manufacturing. The development of modern plastic manufacturing sparked a paradigm shift in industry, and the implications for other aspects of life, for...

  • Patented FDO And Tank Stand From Assmann

    Assmann Corporation of America has recently received patents for its molded in Full Drain Outlet (FDO) assembly (Patent No. US 8,348,090 B2) and modular polyethylene tank stands (Patent No. US 8,814,110 B2). The FDO assembly is for tanks of 2,500 gallons and larger, providing the ability to drain the tank without the need for mechanically installed nozzles and can be utilized where heavy solids or salts may accumulate in the bottom of the tank. The modular polyethylene tank stands, for use with the FDO assembly, can be installed on...

Industry Information

Storage Tanks

Storage tanks store substances utilized in industrial processes, such as water, sewage, petroleum and chemicals. Storage tanks are typically quite large and constructed of a wide range of plastic materials including polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). In addition to material choice, storage tanks differ in size and capacity, ranging from small tanks holding a few gallons to tanks exceeding 35 feet in length, with a storage capacity of 50,000 gallons or more.

Storage tanks encompass a very broad category, and more specific types of storage tanks include water tanks, septic tanks, chemical tanks, fuel tanks, oil tanks and double wall tanks. Due to the wide range of capabilities, storage tanks are utilized in numerous industries including: agricultural, in the storage of water for irrigation as well as herbicides and fertilizer; oil/gas, for the storage of various fuels and oils for automotive and aerospace applications; wastewater treatment, for use in municipal waste water treatment plants and other water treatment facilities; medical, for use in pharmaceutical industries for the storage of liquid and powder medications or even gases such as hydrogen, ammonia, nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide or boron hydride.

Storage tanks are formed using either a molding or a welding process. Plastic tank molding involves using a model shape to form the tank, while plastic tank welding is a process in which two pieces of heat-softened plastic are joined through the application of pressure. Examples of this welding process are hot air and extrusion welding. In hot air welding, also known as hot gas welding, a specially designed heat gun is used to produce a jet of hot air that functions to soften both the parts that are to be joined and a plastic filler rod, which must all be a similar plastic material. In extrusion welding, a welding rod is drawn into a miniature plastic extruder and then plasticized. After it is plasticized, it is forced out of the extruder and pressed against the parts being joined, which have been softened by means of a hot air jet in order to allow bonding to occur. Storage tanks are formed from a wide variety of plastic materials. Of all the plastics, polyethylene is the most commonly used to fabricate storage tanks. Polyethylene, a light, chemical-resistant thermoplastic, is advantageous as a material for storage tanks because it offers high chemical inertness as well as being a very light-weight material.
