Frequently Asked Questions
What is the purpose of a storage tank?-
A stainless steel storage tank is a container used to hold liquids, gases, or other materials. They are usually made of metal, concrete, or plastic, and can be either above ground or underground. Some storage tanks are cylindrical, while others are rectangular or have a more irregular shape. Storage tanks are used in a variety of industries, including oil and gas, food processing, and water treatment. In many cases, storage tanks are used to hold materials that will later be used in a mixing process with things like chemicals or food.

What are storage tanks made of?-
Storage tanks are usually made of metal, concrete, or plastic, and can be either above ground or underground. Mixing tanks on the other hand, can be made out of different materials depending on their intended use. Some mixing tanks may be made out of stainless steel if they are going to be used for storing food, while others may be made out of aluminium if they are going to be used for the storage of chemicals.
What is the difference between a tank and a vessel?-
While they may appear similar at first glance, there are actually several key differences between the two. Tanks are typically used for storing liquids while vessels are designed for holding dry goods. Tanks also have a larger storage capacity than their counterpart. Also tanks are often made from thicker materials than vessels in order to withstand the pressure of the stored liquid. Vessels on the other hand, are not under the same pressure and can therefore be made from thinner types of material.
Is a storage tank a pressure vessel?-
Pressure vessels are subject to strict safety regulations, and must be constructed and maintained according to certain standards. Storage tanks that are not pressure vessels are not subject to the same regulations. However, they may still be subject to other safety regulations, depending on the substance that they are designed to hold.
Can storage tanks explode?-
While storage tanks are designed to be strong and safe, there is always the potential for an explosion. This can occur if the tank is not properly maintained, if it is damaged, or if flammable materials are stored inside. In most cases, an explosion will cause extensive damage to the tank itself and the surrounding area. As a result, it is important to take steps to prevent storage tank explosions such as regular maintenance and safety checks.
