Our heavy-duty custom-built tanks are designed for exceptional function and performance, providing you with peace of mind when you purchase a unit from us.

For example, our double wall tanks are built with 1/4” steel interior walls, roof and a double ¼” steel floor. The interior walls are smooth wall for easier cleaning. The exterior walls are 3/16” corrugated steel. There is an air gap between the 2 tanks. We air test the integrity of both tanks prior to painting. We air test them again and also perform a hydrostatic test after they are final prepped.

We also match the interior liner and components on all of our tanks to the holding requirements of your specific products and verify the compatibility of your product to match it to appropriate liner.  We line our tanks with an epoxy liner that is capable of withstanding chemicals and corrosive liquids, and we have the ability to add specialty liners for the harsher liquids

Our standard liner is a Glass Reinforced Novolac Modified Epoxy. This will handle most products including:

  • 5% Salt Solution
  • Ethanol & Methanol
  • Ethylene & Propylene Glycol
  • Mineral Spirits & Naptha
  • Gasoline, Diesel & Kerosene
  • Crude, Mineral & Motor Oil
  • Turpentine
  • Ammonia

We can install Tnemec Tank Armor for a wide range of additional chemicals, acids, and fractionation blends. It has excellent physical properties for long term durability and service life. We also offer the lining option of Fiberglass reinforced plastic liner (FRP) if necessary.
