Tank Corrosion Protection
Our rectangular water storage tanks can be easily transported due to their modular design and installed using basic equipment. We provide storage for hygienic water, and our rectangular tanks are unaffected by ultra violet or light penetration. Transportable to remote locations & can be installed in restricted areas.
This design also allows us greater versatility to customise tank sizes according to our client requirement and site specifications. Out tank sizes range from 1800 litres to as much as 10 million litres in terms of capacity.
Our panels are cold pressed using high yield stress drawing quality steel. Each panel is individually pressed and punched to ensure dimensional accuracy.
Panel Size: 1220 x 1220mm
Three standard thicknesses are manufactured: 3mm, 4.5mm, and 6mm
ABECO tanks will recommend the correct panel thickness to ensure maximum water pressure is maintained and optimising cost benefits for our clients.
Individual roof sheets span over 1, 2 or 3 tank panels – depending on the width of the tank. Edges of the roof sheets are bent to provide an overlap designed for optimum sealing.
Standard rectangular water storage tanks have internal bracing consisting of angle iron welded to base plates. Base plates are bolted to the tank panels. These items are jig assembled to ensure dimensional accuracy. Roofs are fixed to cold rolled lipped channel purlins supported by tubular posts.
All nuts & bolts are of high tensile grade
All sealants and rubber components used in our products are non-toxic and non-tainting. EPDM grade rubber gasket extruded with a profile specifically developed to achieve optimum sealing, ease, and quick installation is used between tank panel flanges. Rubber bungs are used at specific points. Silicone and mastic are used in conjunction with rubber bungs and to seal bolts protruding through the tank.
All steel components including bolts, nuts, and washers are hot dip galvanised. For storage of potable water at ambient temperature the durable life of a hot dip galvanized tank can be expected to exceed its usage requirements.
