Zincalume Tanks

Zincalume Bolted Tanks are manufactured from steel sheet which has been continuously coated with zinc and aluminium to provide the excellent corrosion resistance which is commonly experienced by tanks that are exposed to the harshest of atmospheric conditions.

 

Aluminum in the coating provides barrier protection to the steel whilst the zinc component provides sacrificial cut edge protection. It is this double protection mechanism which accounts for Zincalume Steel’s superior corrosion performance.

 

This material provides customers with one of the most cost effective, project specific options for the storage of any water between the pH ranges of 3 to 12 and includes Potable Water, Irrigation Water, Fire Water as well as Water Reclamation.

 

Advantages of bolted steel Zincalume tanks

      • Eliminates the need for costly labour, intensive site welding and at the same time dispenses with the requirement of elaborate and expensive re-enforced concrete base structures.
      • Removes the risk of fire and explosion during erection, a particular advantage on sites that store flammable products and liquids particularly in the Oil & Gas Sector.
      • Construction methods allow tanks to be erected within days by a supervisor and team of semi-skilled labourers.
      • Zincalume Bolted Cylindrical tank kits are reduced to one tenth of their total volume allowing a 100mᶾ tank to be packed onto pallets creating a 10mᶾ cubic capacity load which vastly reduces shipping costs.
      • Standard panels are readily available ensuring speedy response to orders and delivery

 

Zincalume pre-installed liner sealed tanks are easily re-located and can also have storage capacities increased by extending the height with minimal expense and disruption.
