WHAT DOES A WELDED STEEL TANK HOLD FOR YOU ?

THE BEST VALUE IN WATER STORAGE

THE BEST VALUE IN WATER STORAGE

Welded steel ground storage tanks offer unbeatable value for municipalities, communities and utility districts. Welded steel standpipes and reservoirs can provide millions of gallons of safe water storage with minimal maintenance costs, options for expansion and an unlimited life expectancy.

WELDED STEEL TANK CONSTRUCTION TODAY

Steel water tanks have been around for over 100 years and many communities can point to an iconic century-old tank in their town. But as municipalities and local utilities look to the future, welded steel tanks present a modern, practical and sustainable solution for storing the water they will need.

Innovative designs provide for maximum storage capacity and eliminate corrosion points. When complete, a welded steel water storage tank is an impermeable, monolithic structure. Welded steel tanks can be modified to meet future capacity needs. Steel is sustainable - 97% of steel is recycled. The steel plates used for welded steel storage tanks are .185" to 2" thick.

COATINGS TECHNOLOGY

Today's storage tank coatings are not the paint systems of the old days. Today's paint systems replace and surpass the systems of decades past. Application processes have improved as well, permitting lead-free coatings systems to provide decades of safe water storage. Modern coatings systems can improve the longevity of a storage tank, protecting both the stored water and the interior of the tank itself.

LONGEST LIFE EXPECTANCY

All water storage tanks, whether they are welded steel, bolted or concrete, require maintenance. Maintenance requirements for welded steel tanks are minimal and predictable. With proper design, inspection, regular maintenance, and the right coatings system, welded steel water tanks can have a nearly limitless service life.
