Top U.S. Manufacturers of Industrial Storage Tanks

Posted by IndustrySelect on Friday, June 12, 2020

The reopening of the domestic economy has unleashed a backlog of delayed infrastructure, industrial and special projects.

Crucial to these projects are various liquids, gases and bulk goods. Everything from fuel to paint to water is required.

These substances must be stored someplace prior to use. Perhaps this is why industrial storage tanks has become one of the most-searched categories on the industrial marketplace IndustryNet.

Storage Tank Basics

Industrial storage tanks are normally grouped into two broad categories: above-ground and underground. Underground storage allows an operator to use all of the surface real estate that would normally be occupied by a tank.

One example is gasoline storage tanks at any service station. In this situation, having tanks above ground would actually be more hazardous due to the possibilities of a vehicle striking them, tampering and fuel theft. There is also the space for parking and fuel pumps that would be lost by the tanks' footprint.

The downside is that these tanks can present serious problems if they ever develop a leak. Because of this they are more stringently regulated than their above-ground counterparts.

Above-ground tanks are easier to maintain, less expensive and less heavily regulated. Some are designed to be portable such as the smaller variants used for water storage in agriculture.

Part of the quest to ensure safety is continuous inspection and testing of tanks. While repetitive, their purpose is to identify and repair potential hazards before they manifest as an accident.
