Storage or Processing Tanks

  • Steel – mild or stainless
  • Wood – stave or plywood
  • Concrete – block or poured
  • Plastic – rigid PVC or Polypropylene
  • Fiberglass
    *tank must be structurally sound

 

 

THE PROBLEM

  • Leaky Tank – from cracks or corrosion
  • Tank contaminates solution
  • Old lining contaminates solution
  • Bonded-in lining is hardening and cracking
  • Solution chemically attacks tank
  • New tank too costly
  • Other lining methods too costly or time-consuming to install

 

 

THE ANSWER

A flexible PVC tank liner because of these advantages:
  • Quick easy installation with minimal down time and loss of production
  • Use of your own personnel rather than expensive outside contractors in most cases
  • Inexpensive compared to other alternatives
  • Custom made to tank dimensions for proper fit
  • Elimination of sandblasting and bonding of liner to tank
  • No other expensive tank preparation – just smooth down sharp projections
  • Liner will expand and contract with temperature changes and tank movement
  • Long lasting superior material formulations for widest range of chemical resistance
  • Easy to repair

 

 

ACCESSORIES AND FEATURES

Wide variety of optional features available to facilitate particular tanks and special situations. These include:
  • Hem and rope or grommets and rope around top perimeter of liner or unique stainless steel clips to easily secure liner in place
  • Double thickness or floating bottoms for extra protection
  • Skirt (double thickness) at liquid / air interface in chrome plating applications
  • Sumps and overflows built in
  • Outlet tubes (attached or seperate) or compression fittings for plumbing through liners (Click Here)
  • Special built-in hold downs for attachment of rigid PVC to liner bottom for protection from falling parts

 

 

MATERIALS

Only the highest quality pinhole free virgin materials are used in a variety of thicknesses and formulations to fit most any application. Materials are one ply and homogeneous, not multiple plys or laminated. Some standard thicknesses are
  • 187 mil (.187″, 3/16″)      30 mil (.030″, 1/32″)
  • 125 mil (.125″  1/8″)        20 mil (.020″)
