Are Water Tanks Resistant to Environmental and Seasonal Conditions?

27 Mar

Storage methods have significantly advanced in today's world. We no longer need to construct pools from concrete to store liquid contents. Tanks like polyethylene water storage tank models have made storage much easier with the advancement of technology. Consequently, finding a good tank has become essential for some industrial brands.

Today, we see these tanks being used in almost every field. They can be used not only for making pickles at home but also for domestic rainwater harvesting systems. This can lead to reduced water bills. Looking at industries and businesses, these tanks are mainly used for purposes such as storing raw materials after production and transporting them from one place to another. In general, they are tools that allow the storage and preservation of a liquid, food, or chemical substance, and then enable its discharge for use when needed.

Many questions arise regarding these tanks. One of these questions is whether these tanks are resistant to seasonal and environmental conditions, often posed by individuals who use their tanks outdoors. As seen in domestic rainwater harvesting systems, these tanks are sometimes used in outdoor environments out of necessity. These tanks are manufactured with state-of-the-art production systems to be resistant to such environmental and seasonal conditions. However, it's essential to examine their durability based on the raw material.

What Are the General Features of Water Tanks?

When we look at these tanks specifically, we see that they are produced using three different raw materials: polyethylene, polyester, and stainless steel. As a result, all tanks have different operating temperatures and durability. While all of them are excellent for the storage of certain contents, some excel in specific areas.

However, they also share some common features. The most important common feature is that they all come with a two-year warranty. They also have high ultraviolet resistance, preventing the formation of algae or similar growths inside the tank. They are designed to be easy to clean, and tanks that are regularly cleaned do not develop unpleasant odors. In addition to this, any damage that may occur due to use can be repaired at our manufacturing facilities. Rest assured, no low-quality materials or chemicals that could harm the tank are used in their production.

Durability Features of Polyethylene Water Tanks?

Polyethylene tanks are generally made from plastic, a material known in chemical terms as linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE). Unlike others, these tanks are produced as monoblocks, meaning they are made as a single piece. Let's take a closer look at other features of these tanks.

  • They offer users a size variety ranging from 50 liters to 25.000 liters.
  • They belong to the most cost-effective category and are among the best-sellers.
  • Their operating temperature ranges from -5 degrees to +50 degrees Celsius.
  • They are the easiest to clean among all tanks.
  • They are highly suitable for food storage.
  • Brass sleeves and polyethylene covers are used to ensure complete food compatibility.
  • They can be produced in any color of your choice.

Durability Features of Polyester Water Tanks?

Polyester tanks are produced by mixing polyester resin with fiberglass and using special adhesives. This allows for on-site assembly. Additionally, these tanks feature isolated steel rings to enhance durability when needed for high chemical resistance.

  • They offer users a size ranges from 200 liters to 100.000 liters.
  • They are ideal for storing chemical substances.
  • They are easy to transport.
  • Their operating temperature ranges from -5 degrees to +60 degrees Celsius.
  • They can be produced in any color of your choice.
  • They offer on-site assembly.
  • Even tanks with the highest capacity can be manufactured.

Durability Features of Stainless-Steel Water Tanks?

Stainless steel tanks belong to the most durable tank category. These tanks are produced by mixing steel and chrome-nickel to obtain AISI 304 steel, which is then welded together using argon gas.

  • They are corrosion-resistant.
  • They are suitable for storing anything.
  • They have the highest working temperature among tanks. Their operating temperature is +80 degrees Celsius.
  • They offer a size variety from 500 liters to 100.000 liters.
  • They can be assembled on-site.
  • As the size increases, feet and stairs are added to the design.
  • They are in the most durable tank category.
  • They can be produced in any color of your choice.
  • Due to their raw material, they heat up and cool down quickly.

In this article, we aimed to describe the durability of tanks against environmental and seasonal conditions. Nevertheless, if possible, try to use your tank in an enclosed area and clean it regularly.
