Thermoplastic Chemical Storage Tanks



Spiral wound storage tanks manufactured in High-Density Polyethylene and Polypropylene

Developed in partnership with Cambridge University in the early 90’s and continuously improving our spiral wound manufacturing method creates the highest quality, market-leading chemical storage tanks. Capable of safely storing chemicals ranging from weakly acidic/alkaline, up to those which are highly oxidising such as 96% Sulphuric Acid or 15% Sodium Hypochlorite.

We have the capacity to manufacture vessels up to 4.3m in diameter and 130,000l capacity, following the current market trend for larger capacity tanks. Every storage tank we design meets our customers exact requirements and conforms to the British and European standard BS EN 12573: 2000 ‘Welded static non-pressurized 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).

We are also able to provide full project services including delivery and site-installation, A broad range of valving, pumps and controls and ChemiGuard Pressurised and Pumped offloading cabinets and Dosing cabinets for safe fluid transfer.
