An Overview of Two Types Of Storage Tanks

Tanks of different kinds are used across industries for diverse purposes. Process tanks, also known as storage tanks, are one such type of tank that is vital in industries like food processing, chemical, pharmaceuticals, petroleum, and paper industries.


Storage tanks are mainly used for storing anything from hazardous waste and water to raw materials and chemicals. What makes these tanks useful is the fact that some raw materials or hazardous waste, when kept in unsuitable tanks, can react with other elements and lead to untoward accidents.


To prevent such accidents, storage tanks are made using materials like plastic, titanium, stainless steel, galvanized steel, and carbon steel.

PVC-lined tanks

PVC is one of the most common materials used for the lining of tanks. The flexibility and chemical resistance that PVC offers is unmatched. Since resistance to chemicals is an important feature of a storage tank, PVC-lined tanks are immensely popular, especially in industries like Electroplating, metal finishing, and the aerospace industry. Such tanks are used for anodizing, pickling, and effluent treatment in the aerospace industry.
