Chemical tanks

 To order

There is a wide variety of tanks for chemical liquids. Different materials are used for the fabrication of the chemical tank, and there can be various types of internal chemical-resistant coatings, heating systems, ventilation, recuperation, etc.

Therefore, it is not a trivial task to buy the optimal chemical tank for a specific production. The type of the chemical tank depends on the storing product, storage volume, budget and location.

We specialize in industrial chemical tanks for medium and large storage volumes made of steel. Steel tanks for chemicals are best suited for large storage volumes, heating and high temperatures.

Steel as a material for the chemical tank is chosen when:

  • you need durability and strength - many chemicals stored in large volumes are dangerous, therefore the requirements for reliability are the highest;
  • need resistance to aggressive external influences (for example, when exposed to direct sunlight, many types of plastic crumble);
  • resistance to mechanical loads is needed - this applies to large storage volumes, snow loads, loads from heaters and thermal insulation, from loading and unloading operations, from seismic;
  • maintainability - a chemical tank made of steel on site is much easier and cheaper to repair (for example, replace the roof, bottom, hatch);
  • the possibility of future modernization, retrofitting with additional equipment is needed;
  • ease of care is required.

Operation of chemical tanks

Medium to large volume chemical tank is not a serial product. A special project is developed for each tank, after installation a passport is made. The chemical tank is put into operation by the decision of the commission.

As with petroleum storage tanks, the design of a liquid chemical tank takes into account the stringent regulatory requirements for placing a chemical storage tank next to other objects - buildings, roads, residential buildings, etc. If it is impossible to comply with all the requirements, Special technical conditions (STC) are developed.

The base (foundation) of a tank for chemistry should be designed taking into account increased requirements for strength.

The base of the chemical tank is protected from rainwater. Water is drained from the site so that there is no accumulation of water along the contour of the tank.

Many liquid chemicals stored in chemical tanks require temperature control. This affects both the quality of the product itself and the safety of the tank from corrosion. For this reason, chemical tanks are often equipped with thermal insulation and heating systems.

In the area where tanks for chemical liquids are located, it is prohibited:

  • allow plants and water / snow accumulation in the area of the chime seam, as well as lawns within the embankment zone;
  • discharge cleaning products from a chemical tank into the sewer;
  • leave the hatches of the chemical tank open.

Acid / alkali solution tanks

Acceptable quantities of acids and alkalis for storage at the enterprise are limited. As a rule, this is a monthly supply. It can be increased (with design justification), for example, if the enterprise is located in a remote area, or buys acid / alkali in a multiple of a wagon. In any case, the requirement should be as minimal as possible.

EuroTankWorks specializes in medium to large volume steel chemical tanks. From such tanks of acids, the enterprises arrange consumable warehouses with the receipt of the product in tank cars. In addition to them, warehouses for tared acids / alkalis can be arranged.

Steel tanks for acid solution can be vertical or horizontal and made of any volume.

When designing a warehouse for storing concentrated acids, it should be considered that when they are bottled, an acid cloud may form as a result of the rapid transition of some of the acids into the atmosphere. For this reason, it is necessary to calculate the radius of the danger zone based on the properties of the acids. There should be no residential buildings and other objects of mass gathering of people in this radius.

When choosing the location of the future park of tanks for acids with a risk of the formation of a primary acid cloud, priority is given to the sites located below other facilities and on the predominantly leeward side of the nearest settlements.

In the parks of acid storage tanks there should be no extraneous production facilities and personnel.

The height of the dumping of each group of acid solution tanks is made 0.2 m above the potential spill level of the product.
In the parks of tanks for acid, the possibility of emergency transfer of the contents of any of the tanks to other acid tanks and / or special systems of emergency collection of the product is provided.
All these measures are provided for by the Plan for the localization and elimination of emergency situations.
