A steel Above-ground storage tank of 5000 cubic meters (AST-5000) is designed to store various liquid products, including hazardous ones.

We offer you to fabricate the metal structures of the AST-5000 tank in our modern specialized workshop, deliver them to your construction site, assemble them and commission the tank.

For the proper storage of your product in the tank, we will select the optimal internal anti-corrosion coating.

On this page AST-5000 of our standard design is proposed. For each customer, the design of the tank is being finalized or a completely individual design is being made.

If this tank interests you, you can download, fill out and send us a Data sheet. Then we can do all the calculations and prepare for you a detailed commercial offer.

The above-ground storage steel tank with a loading capacity 5000 m³ can be designed, fabricated and constructed using the plate-by-plate method, traditional for Europe and US. At the same time, our factory is equipped with a special coiling machine, so we can fabricate tanks using the coiling method, which is widely used in Russia and the CIS countries.

Corrosion allowance may be considered while working out the engineering design project if the longer operating period is anticipated, or aggressive fluids are meant to be stored in it.

Basic construction elements of a vertical 5000 m³ steel tank

AST-5000: Storage Tank BottomAST-5000 Bottom

  • Type: flat steel bottom with annular plates.
  • Thickness: 5/8 mm.
  • Delivery from the workshop: in a coil or plate-by-plate.
  • Net weight: 18 975 kg.





AST-5000: Storage Tank ShellAST-5000 Shell

  • Type: closed cylinder.
  • Consists of 8 horizontal belts.
  • Thickness: 9-7 mm.
  • Delivery from the workshop: in a coil or plate-by-plate.
  • Net weight: 54 100 kg.




AST-5000: Storage Tank Shield RoofAST-5000 Roof

In tanks with a volume of 5000m³ roofs of various types can be used. The most common are frame conical roofs with decking and shield roofs.

A conical frame roof is used for vertical tanks with a volume of up to 5000m³. Such a roof consists of frame elements, a central ring and flooring plates.

The shield roof can also be used in AST-5000. So we call the roof, which is assembled of shop-welded segments (shields).



Internal Floating Roof for a Vertical 5000 m³ Steel Tank

The AST-5000 tank for storing easily evaporating (volatile) liquids can be equipped with an internal floating roof.

Evaporation resulting from small and large "breathing" of the tank leads to significant money losses, the quality of the product decreases and the environment deteriorates. An internal floating roof helps solve these problems effectively.

Most often, aluminum internal floating roofs of block or pontoon type are used.

The design of the block floating roof that we manufacture consists of sealed aluminum blocks with dimensions of 2.98x0.89x0.04 m. The blocks are filled with rigid polyurethane foam.

Pontoon floating roof is a disk with the diameter less than the tanks’ diameter by 0.4 m, mounted on cylindrical flotation pontoons . Pontoons provide buoyancy of the roof on the surface of the product. Immersion of the floats occurs only on ½ of their diameter, as a result of which free space is formed between the deck and the surface of the liquid. The space is filled with product evaporation. To prevent vapor leakage, the roof around the perimeter is equipped with a special elastic shutter.
