Silos is the largest sub-section of steel bolted tanks. It includes agricultural, chemical and liquid, rainwater harvesting, mining, biofuels, and many more applications. Climate Tanks™ supplies stainless steel, glass fused to steel, epoxy coated, powder coated, and galvanized silos around the world all engineered to specifications.
The mining industry requires treatment tanks which must resist the highly abrasive nature of the contents and the corrosive environment of mining processes. PERMASTORE® Glass-Fused-to-Steel Tanks are ideal for this application. PERMASTORE® Tanks are suited to tough environments where dependability is a vital characteristic. They can withstand the extremes of the environment in these remote locations, and the modular design principle of the tank kits offers ease of transport and assembly at site.
The biofuel industry is growing around the world as an environmentally acceptable renewable energy source generated from biomass. Biofuel use can reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, lower the demand for fossil fuels and is often supported by government subsidies. International Standards – For biofuels storage, Biotanq’s quality systems provide a credible alternative to the API 650 standard for welded tanks and to the 12B specification for bolted tanks.
Rainwater harvesting’s economic feasibility can also be calculated by its synergistic values. Rainwater is soft, which means less detergent is used and released into the environment. Also, rainwater harvesting systems with a connected vaporization system can raise site humidity and create a healthier microclimate. This is ideal for city areas dealing with air pollution. Likewise, utilizing rainwater as opposed to municipal and well water benefits local streams, lakes, ponds and groundwater sources since less water will be pulled from these sources. Such benefits may not have a direct price tag, but their value is long-lasting and considerable.
A chemical tank is of necessity and designed for a specific chemical, as all chemicals have variable corrosion potentials there are no, one size fits all. The chemical and application parameters will dictate the design of the tank. Our tanks will be impacted by external considerations, heat, cold, vacuum, pressure and the potential aggressive nature (acidic – caustic) These external effects may impact the tanks’ ability to hold and maintain the viability of both the chemical and the container. (Example: liquid freezing or thickening due to ambient temperature, removes the use of the liquid and the tank.) We provide architects, engineers, general contractors, and clients with an engineered solution that will meet and exceed their specifications which encompasses tanks that embed into the concrete foundation, have a steel panel bolted floor, or mount to the foundational sub straight that is provided and designed by others. Climate Inc. chemical tank will of necessity be made of a material as resistant to the chemical stored as design and economics allow with stainless steel, glass fused to steel, or epoxy coated. Typically, there will be a chemical profile and information report known as a MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) which is provided by most chemical manufacturers or distributors and should be the starting point for chemical tank design. Chemical compatibility, your chemical provider has chemical resistance information you might need. The chemical provider will detail exactly what tank material, gasket and plumbing materials are suitable for your chemical.
