Common applications of storage tanks


Storage tanks can be used for storing everything from chemicals and raw materials to water or hazardous liquid waste accumulated during production at a manufacturing unit. The capability of these tanks to withstand extreme temperatures make them ideal for storage. These tanks can also be used to maintain the temperature of the substance stored for an extended period.


Two or more ingredients or raw materials need to be mixed to create the final product in many manufacturing units. This is where processing tanks come in. These tanks can be used to mix raw materials of all nature without any contamination. Storage tanks guarantee safe and efficient storage. 


Process tanks are used for processing in chemical, dairy, food, and pharmaceutical industries. In addition, breweries make widespread use of these tanks for storing and processing a large quantity of beer. These tanks are specifically made using material that does not react to or alter the substance stored in any way.


Process tanks mainly have two natures: stationary and portable. The former is used for on-site purposes in a manufacturing unit while the latter is used for transportation. Portable storage tanks are mainly used to transport items like chemicals, petrol, and natural gas.
