Bunded Chemical Storage Tanks



BUNDED CHEMICAL STORAGE USE CASES

Today, many clients face the challenge of needing to maximise their chemical storage capacity within the same limited site space. We can help resolve this in environments with no height restrictions by “building tall” and manufacturing taller replacement chemical tanks with close proximity bunds to sit within a minimised footprint. A recent example of this would be illustrated in our work with Christeyns who grew their capacity by 60%.

A direct benefit of reducing the chemical tank diameters is the reduction in Civils costs by using less concrete; which also has a positive impact on an organisation’s carbon footprint.

We have the capacity to manufacture Bunded Chemical Storage Tanks in the region of 100,000l capacity. Every bunded chemical storage tank we design meets our customers exact requirements and conforms to the British and European standard BS EN 12573: 2000 ‘Welded static non-pressurised thermoplastic tanks’. We specialise in using thermoplastics due to their inert nature when dealing with some of the most aggressive chemicals. Specifically, we use Corrosion Resistant Polypropylene and High-Density Polyethylene (PE100-RC).

WHAT IS A BUNDED CHEMICAL STORAGE TANK?

Bunded chemical storage tanks have been specifically designed for the storage of corrosive and aggressive chemicals. A bund is ‘a ‘facility (including walls and base) built around an area where potentially polluting materials are handled, processed or stored, for the purposes of containing any unintended escape of material from that area until such time as remedial action can be taken’. As defined by Ciria, bunds must be ‘structurally independent’ from the primary containment tank. A bunded storage tank is essentially a tank within a tank, as both the storage tank and bund are fabricated independently, both comprising of their own cylinder and base. Bunded chemical storage tanks provide an alternative to concrete lined bunds. A welded rainskirt prevents the ingress of water if the location is external.

Tanks being ‘double skinned’ or ‘double walled’ differ from bunded tanks as these constructions involve both ‘skins’ or ‘walls’ being welded to a single base and do not provide true secondary containment.
