Everything To Learn About Process Tanks


Process tanks are often used interchangeably with storage tanks, which is understandable because they are very similar and sometimes do the same thing. They can be configured in different ways to suit specific applications, depending on several aspects like dimension, placement, orientation, and wall configuration. Both are also useful for various industrial applications, including mixing, blending, metering, as well as storage purposes. The kind of material used for making the tank will dictate its suitability for certain applications. The most important criteria when deciding among various process tanks include dimension and capacity, which is determined by the internal volume of space available for storing the material.


When it comes to orientation, the tank comes in both vertical and horizontal. Vertical process tanks can usually be accessed through the ports on its bottom while standing vertically. These tanks can be installed above ground or underground. Conversely, horizontal tanks are commonly mounted on stands and can be accessed either at the bottom or on top of the tank. As for the portable units, they can be moved through their wheels or with the aid of a moving device. Another important factor that affects the applicability of the tank is its wall construction. Single wall tanks are very common and used for many purposes while double-wall tanks are ideal for applications that need higher pressure.


Finally, process tanks can be created using different materials with some of them being made with special linings such as glass lined or protective coatings for certainly unique applications. They can be made with steel which provides amazing physical properties and characteristics. A rolled sheet steel is often used for this purpose but stainless steel can also be used due to its high resistance to corrosion while galvanized steel is great for added protection. Fiberglass reinforced polyester or FRP is another material used to construct the tank because of its lightweight, flexibility, and great strength. Lastly, titanium is also a candidate because it is very strong but also light in weight. It is best for application that involves extreme temperatures and stresses.
