Steel Tanks Fabrication


Silos and storage tanks manufacturer - EuroTnakWorks JSC is the up-to-date fabricator of:

Edge milling line: 

Steel tanks fabrication equipmentSteel tanks fabrication equipmentSteel tanks fabrication equipmentSteel tanks fabrication equipment

Our workshop Is equipped with a line for processing the edges of sheet metal by milling. The line belongs to the category of key equipment for the steel tank fabrication and is used for sheet metal preparation for welding.

It consists of two machines: longitudinally edge-milling machine (for processing steel plates in width) and transverse end-milling (for processing ends of steel plates, i.e. processing in length).

The processing is done by the simultaneously milling of the edges of the metal plates along their length. As a result, its accurate design size is achieved in width as well as the correct geometric shape. Parallel milling allows to process metal 3-4 times faster than, for example, on a conventional planer.

Not all storage tanks manufacturers have such equipment. Therefore, the sheet metal edge milling line is one of our competitive advantages.

Coiling Frame for Site-built Steel Tanks Fabrication:

EuroTankWorks JSC is one of the few storage tanks and silos manufacturers in the world equipped with the special coiling machine. This enables to produce coiled panels of the wall, bottom and roof of the tank with the use of automated double-welding.

First, a map of the panel is collected on the upper tier of the coiling frame. Then the joints are welded by the automatic welding tractor. Then, through the auxiliary coil, the panel stretches to the lower tier, after which the joints are welded from the back side.

The quality control is then made: all welded joints are visually inspected and checked by an X-ray. For the work of the Non-destructive Control Laboratory under the lower tier of the coiling machine, staff access is specially provided. As a matter of fact, only the two-tiered coiling frame allows to really carry out quality control of welded joints in accordance with the requirements of Regulatory documents.

The quality of rolled tank structures, produced at the special facility, is sufficiently higher than that of the plates, “rolled” on the floor by the hauling winches. Our enterprise guarantees the exact geometric parameters, lack of deformation and ideal welding joints.

Welding of horizontal and drainage storage tanks

EuroTankWorks operates automatic and auto-manual Lincoln Electric and ESAB welding equipment.

Assembling of the tank elements is carried out at the columned welding keys in automatic regime. This provides high quality of assembling operations, making the period of steel tank fabrication shorter and decreasing the cost of manual work. Only few enterprises in Russia possess such kind of equipment, which makes our products competitive in quality.

Technical equipment of the our steel tanks fabrication facility:

Our company is one of the storage tanks manufacturers , having sufficient material and technical possibilities for appropriate metal-roll preparation, which ensures high quality of all tank elements.

Since a tank is not just a set of walls and bottom, but also manway plates, fitting pipes, flanges, footpaths and other technological elements, the quality of the final unit is greatly dependent on the accuracy of each element’s production.

Our enterprise has fully equipped mechanical metal processing shop, highly-accurate scarfing machines, plate-bending and plate-flattening equipment, metal turning lathes and drilling machines.

Corrosion preventive procedures:

EuroTankWorks also has a bead blasting facility and a paint shop. This is to be seen as one more competitive advantage of our enterprise, as the majority of producers fail to keep the corrosion preventive technology for the finished tanks.

High-quality application of anti-corrosion coating is an important stage of the shop-welded steel tanks fabrication.

After welding all metal units are meant to pass bead blasting processing, after which the coating is applied according to the project. The coated units are dried in special premises, where the temperature, humidity and dust content are strictly controlled. This ensures the long operating period for the tank and its aesthetic exterior view.

Workshop Characteristics:

Steel tanks fabrication facility EuroTankWorks is located in the workshop with a floor area of 5990 square meters and a ceiling height of 18m.

We have modernized the electrical system and now the power capacity of the Plant is 1000 k VA.

Our plant is gasified, which allows us to heat the working space with the modern infrared burners. This is a the obligatory condition providing the quality of welding in winter time. By the way, the majority of small tank manufacturers in Russia do not heat workshops and conduct welding operations at negative air temperatures, which is a violation of technical legislation.

Another important for the steel tank fabrication advantage of our workshop is the floor. Since before us in this shop the previous owners had assembled the aircraft, the floor is made of granite slabs on a thick concrete screed and it is perfectly flat. This simplifies the assembly of metal structures, and also allows to ensure the correct storage of sheet metal.
