In recent times, storage tanks have been used for various purposes in our country as well as in countries across Europe and Africa. Water tanks are produced in different sizes and with different features. While large tanks are commonly used by major industrial brands, there are also many individual applications, such as in agriculture, animal husbandry, and rainwater harvesting systems. There are still many unknown aspects about these tanks. Therefore, we have conducted research on tanks, and it is important to be aware of these points before making a purchase. Here are some important things to know about these tanks:
1. On-site installation is possible.
Depending on the manufacturing process, tanks can be installed on-site. Tanks made of polyester or stainless steel can be installed on-site. When looking at the production methods, they are manufactured by combining the main material obtained from fiberglass and polyester resin using special adhesives. Stainless steel tanks, on the other hand, are produced by welding chromium and nickel alloy steel using argon welding. These manufacturing methods allow for on-site installation. The only type of tank that cannot be installed on-site is the one made of polyethylene.
Polyethylene tanks, on the other hand, are produced by pouring polyethylene into molds specifically designed for tank production, and then the tank is extracted as a single piece. This production method enables the mass production of polyethylene tanks. Additionally, while tanks made of polyethylene can be produced up to a maximum of 25 tons, tanks made of polyester and stainless steel can be produced up to a maximum of 100 tons.
2. They can be made of polyethylene, polyester, and stainless steel.
Three different materials are used in tank production: stainless steel, polyester, and polyethylene. Based on research and data collected through production development studies, it has been determined that these materials do not have any positive or negative effects on the contents stored in the tanks. Let's consider iron as an example. If we soak water in a container made of simple iron for a few hours and then drink the water, we can taste the iron in the water. This indicates that it interacts with the contents that encounter iron. Additionally, iron has the potential to rust, so it is not used in tank production. Considering these factors, the choice of material used in tank production is significant.
3. It Provides Insulation Against Harmful UV Rays.
Some stored contents can be sensitive to light. In this regard, the 1-ton water tanks made of stainless steel are highly advantageous. Due to the inherent structure of stainless steel, these tanks prevent any light from entering the storage space. On the other hand, other types of tanks only offer filtration of harmful rays. For the best light insulation, it is recommended to opt for High tonnage tanks made of stainless steel.
4. Suitable for Food Contact.
These tanks are designed to accommodate a wide range of contents including pickles, grains, and various organic materials. When it comes to food storage, polyethylene and stainless steel are the most suitable materials. Polyethylene has gained international recognition for its food compatibility. Scientifically, it has been proven that stainless steel does not have any adverse effects on organic contents. Furthermore, these tanks are also utilized for storing micro bacteria and medications.
5. Capable of Chemical Storage.
In addition to organic contents, the capability of chemical storage is of great importance. While all tanks can safely store substances like detergents, polyester tanks are specifically designed to store dangerous substances with flammable or corrosive properties. The production process of polyester tanks involves the addition of isophthalic and epoxy-based vinyl ester resin to enhance their chemical resistance. As a result, the tanks exhibit maximum chemical durability.
6. Can be Customized in Any Desired Color.
Typically, tanks are seen in their original raw material color or with standard options such as white or blue. However, it is worth noting that all storage products can be customized in any desired color. Tanks produced in different colors not only provide superior light insulation but also allow for easier categorization of stored contents.
