Fast Engineer & Fabricators provide Industrial storage tanks are containers used for storage of gas, oil, water, and petrochemical products, employed for industrial uses. These tanks come in different sizes and shapes and can be underground, horizontal, and vertical, and be made from concrete, stone, fiberglass, steel or plastic.
These industrial storage tanks can be available in areas like petroleum producing and refining, petrochemical and chemical manufacturing,bulk storage and transfer operations, other industries consuming or producing liquids and vapors.
Industrial storage tanks can also be categorized into several types based on the substance they hold and some other factors such as Industrial Fuel Storage Tanks, Industrial Chemical Storage Tanks, Industrial Oil Storage Tanks, Industrial Hot Water Storage Tanks, Industrial Water and Liquid Storage Tanks, Industrial Plastic Storage Tanks, Industrial Gas Storage Tanks
TYPES OF STORAGE TANKS
Oil and petroleum storage tanks are available in various types, materials, shapes and sizes are used from the initial production of crude oil, to the refining and distribution of various petroleum oil products. Many changes and variations took place in the manufacturing of these storage tanks over the years and the modern oil storage tanks are made of plastic, reinforced concrete, stainless steel, carbon steel, or even carved on mostly impermeable rock salt deposits for underground oil storage. As earlier said that over the years, various types of oil storage tanks have been developed which includes:
Floating Roof Tank: As its name defines, this type of tank has a floating roof that rises or falls according to the oil level in the tank. The floating roof is actually a safety feature to prevent vapor build-up inside the tank.
Fixed Roof Tank: Next is the fixed roof tank which doesn’t expose the oil it stores and is used to hold lower volumes of oil products compared to those in tanks with floating roofs.
Open Top Tank: This type of tank was one of the early types of oil storage tanks. It has limited use now because of evaporation losses and the risk that oil will catch fire.
Single Skin and Double Skin Tanks: These are tanks with one layer or two layers of steel or plastic respectively. A double skin tank is also called a twin-walled tank.
Bunded Tank: A bunded tank is a tank enclosed by another tank or a tank with a containment dike around it. The outer tank or containment dike serves as the catch system to prevent oil spills, leakages or other oil contamination from spreading to the surroundings.
