Materials Used in Water Tank Construction

15 Sep


Tanks are products designed to store water for easy access and convenient reuse. They are produced in various models such as plastic, polyester, stainless steel, reinforced concrete, galvanized steel, and more. As a company, we specialize in manufacturing plastic, polyester, and stainless-steel models, making us the leading brand in water storage tank production in Turkey.

With the experience and knowledge gained since 1986, we engage in three main categories of tank production. The production process of tanks, which are made from diverse raw materials and components, involves specific procedures.

How Are Water Tanks Manufactured?

Tanks are used to store liquids for various purposes. However, due to their distinct raw materials and components, each type of tank possesses unique attributes. The superior qualities of each tank depend on its design and raw materials, but they also share common characteristics.
A significant shared feature among all our tanks is their high protection against ultraviolet (UV) radiation. UV resistance prevents algae growth and bacterial production within the stored liquid. Another common aspect is the utilization of state-of-the-art production methods and equipment. As a company, we strive to advance our production methods while staying current with technological developments.

To better comprehend the quality of our tanks and the types of fluids they can store, understanding the production methods is essential. Let's delve into these methods step by step.

How Are Plastic Water Tanks Manufactured?

These tanks are produced using LLDPE (Linear Low-Density Polyethylene) raw material, also known as polyethylene. The raw material used in production comes in various variations available across Asia, Europe, America, and Africa. The highest-quality tank production aligns with European standards and utilizes raw materials adhering to these standards. As a company, we use top-grade LLDPE material imported from Europe for our manufacturing. Especially in the production of colored tanks, we avoid altering natural white material with various chemicals for coloring. Instead, we employ original colored raw materials for each tank, ensuring the authenticity of colors in the manufacturing process.

Another critical aspect to consider when producing tanks using polyethylene material is the quality of molds used and the expertise of skilled personnel in the field. In the production using rotational mold technology, it's essential that tank molds are of high quality, smooth, capable of withstanding high temperatures, and designed to prevent issues like jamming during the tank extraction process. Furthermore, personnel managing the production process should possess experience and expertise. As a company, we prioritize all these factors. As a result, since 1986, we proudly serve as Turkey's most preferred plastic water tank manufacturer.

Upon the completion of the production process using rotational mold technology and high-quality raw materials, water tanks undergo various processes to reach their final form. Tanks, upon removal from the molds, undergo a comprehensive inspection. Factors such as cracking, deformation, tearing, and other defects are thoroughly examined. If the tank doesn't exhibit any issues stemming from the manufacturing process, it undergoes a general cleaning and smoothing procedure. After these steps, sleeves for attaching accessories like taps or drainage pipes are mounted on the tanks. Once these processes are complete, the tanks, ready to be stocked, have their top covers attached based on their cap size, thus concluding all stages.

Polyester Water Tanks Carefully Crafted by Our Experts

Unlike plastic models, these tanks are handcrafted. There is no baking process involving any molds or machines. These tanks are produced using polyester resins and fiberglass reinforcement. With a layered reinforcement structure, these tanks are designed to accommodate various liquids, making them among the most versatile storage options. This attribute also renders them a popular choice for underground use. The tanks are joined using specialized adhesives and reinforcing materials. Additionally, the utilization of special adhesives and fiberglass ensures a leak-proof body structure.

Due to our tanks being entirely handcrafted, they offer more advantages for customization compared to tanks made from polyethylene material. Areas like lid spaces, connection points, ladder areas, legs, and all other additional components can be customized as desired. Thanks to the corrosion and decay-resistant body structure of polyester water tanks, they provide a significant advantage over concrete or metal tanks. This ensures the long-term preservation of the stored water or liquids.

Stainless Steel Water Tank Production Offers Key Advantages

Among the various storage solutions available, our tanks made from stainless steel offer unique advantages. These tanks are produced using AISI 304 and AISI 316 stainless steel sheets. Blocks of sheet metal obtained in mold form undergo various bending, cutting, and welding processes to become tanks. As our tanks are entirely handcrafted by our experts, they possess a flexible design architecture like tanks made from fiberglass material.
Stainless steel sheets can be bent, cut, and welded into desired shapes. This allows our tanks to be manufactured in various capacities and dimensions. Moreover, all additional components can be customized according to customer preferences. Connection sockets, lid areas, size, capacity, ladder compartments, level indicators, and thickness of the material can all be modified.

Due to their non-oxidizing and bacteria-resistant nature, our tanks can preserve liquids over many years. The greatest advantage lies in the use of smooth and hygienic stainless-steel sheet to construct tanks.

Striving for Excellence in Water Tank Production

With over 150,000 tanks sold since 1986, we have consistently stood by our customers with our tank models. Customer satisfaction is always our top priority. Hence, we produce our tanks through a combination of quality materials and intensive efforts from our R&D and product development departments. We meticulously design, test, and present our tanks to ensure customer satisfaction in every detail.

In this article, we aimed to elaborate on the features of different tanks to aid in your tank selection process.
