1. Bladder Tanks

A bladder tank is a water-filled aboveground storage tank with a bladder within. Three layers of steel make these tanks sturdy enough to withstand external pressure and temperature changes. Each tank typically has two to five ports, each of which is connected to a different bladder inside the tank through a pipe. To manually fill the tank, connect the two bladders in the same way as the ports inside the tank are linked.

2.Tanks that fold

Folding tanks are water storage containers that are lightweight, modular, and reusable. They’re ideal for long-term bulk water storage, military, emergency, and disaster relief supply lines, housing units, and more because of their architecture. Various sizes are available.

3. Polyethylene Storage Tanks

Polyethylene Water Storage Tanks are a welcome storage solution for plastic storage tank owners who have been looking for a way to repair the appearance of their tanks. They are made of high-quality materials and have long-lasting design attributes.

4. Above Ground Storage Tank

A huge number of liquids is stored in an above-ground storage tank, or AST. Oil and other petroleum-based goods are the most often stored materials. The system includes a tank to hold the liquid and a network of pipes to transport it from one area to another.

5. Corrugated Steel Storage Tank

For nearly a century, the adaptable corrugated steel tank system has been a popular choice for applications with unique requirements. These simple containers have proven their mettle in both industry and commerce, whether in liquid or gas service, or for air, water, or steam service. Corrugated tanks are easy to clean and maintain, as well as dependable.

6. Steel-Welded Standpipes

Steel-welded standpipes are the way to go if you want a durable and long-lasting standpipe. These standpipes are highly durable, lasting more than 50 years. These pipes are appropriate for use in hospitals, government buildings, offices, and construction sites, among other applications. They stay longer and are more secure because of the robust seams.

7. Steel-welded Water Storage Reservoirs

Steel-welded water storage reservoirs are used to store water for a variety of applications, including residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural, and more. It is critical to recognize that this type of tank comes in a variety of sizes, each with its own unique dimensions based on the intended use and type.
