Steel tanks have application in many different sectors of the economy. They are used:
- in industry and agriculture,
- in the military and service sectors,
- in the construction and fuel industries and others.
Appropriate design solutions, reliable workmanship and good quality of materials ensure long life time, high durability, tightness and functionality of such products.
Types of offered steel tanks
Vertical and horizontal cylindrical tanks manufactured by the Ekonstal Group are a wide range of products, which can be customised according to the client’s needs. It is important, as the expectations as to technical parameters may vary depending on what type of substances the client wants to store and where and how the steel tank will be used. Therefore, the Ekonstal Group offers the following:
- aboveground tanks (with horizontal or vertical axis) and underground steel tanks (with horizontal axis),
- single wall steel tanks and double wall steel tanks,
- pressure tanks and non-pressure tanks
- single compartment tanks or multi-compartment steel tanks (up to 8 compartments).
Bespoke tanks – customisation options
We offer a bespoke tanks for multiple applications. At the design stage, we are able to define parameters such as the ultimate volume of the steel tank and its individual compartments, the tank length and diameter, and the equipment used. It is also possible to introduce non-standard solutions. For example, steel tanks can be additionally secured if they are located in an area with particularly unfavourable weather conditions, or equipped with additional accessories suitable for the way the product is used, (e.g. internal heaters, coils, thermal insulation layer, ladders with protection against unauthorised access, landings, platforms, railings, wells, well extensions and others). You can read more about the various options for adapting the tank you ordered to your needs on the “Customization of steel storage tanks“.
Steel tanks — safe storage of liquid substances
Storage of corrosive, explosive, caustic or toxic substances is an inseparable part of the business activity of many industries. From this point of view, it is important to use reliable solutions that guarantee safe storage of these substances. It means both protecting the environment and minimizing the risk of its contamination in the event of an uncontrolled leak, as well as ensuring that constant parameters and properties of the stored medium are maintained. Steel storage tanks are perfect for this type of application.
Strength and corrosion resistance
Tanks made of steel are known for their strength and durability. They are made of high-quality steel and provide a solid construction that can withstand even the most extreme conditions. Thanks to appropriate external and internal protective coatings they are resistant to corrosion and damaging effects of aggressive chemicals. The coatings are a specialized barrier between the stored substance and the tank shell (tank wall), which prevents potential negative effects of corrosion.
Specialized protection solutions
In order to monitor and detect any leaks, steel tanks may be equipped with advanced, automatic detection systems. They respond to, e.g., changes in pressure, temperature or humidity enabling quick identification of a problem. Thanks to acoustic and visual signals it is possible to react immediately and to limit the risk of negative environmental impact that may occur when a dangerous substance leaks into the soil.
Ventilation and breathing hoses
Steel tanks are equipped with breathing systems and hoses that allow controlled ventilation and protect the tank from pressure differences. They enable breathing of the tank, which eliminates the risk of exceeding the critical values of the permissible pressure. As a result, they prevent implosion and explosion that could damage the structure of the steel tank. That is extremely important for maintaining safe working conditions and minimizing environmental impact.
Temperature control systems
For substances that require maintaining specific storage temperatures, steel tanks can be equipped with additional structural elements to ensure temperature control. They are, e.g., additional thermal insulation layers of both the tank and the pipeline, as well as specialized heaters in the form of spiral or non-standard heating coils. It allows to maintain optimal storage conditions, minimizing the risk of degradation of substances and increasing their durability.
Steel tanks – aesthetics are also important
The aesthetics of our products is important for us. Apart from tightness, durability and safety in terms of influence on environment, our customers are now paying attention to visual qualities. They are especially important in the case of aboveground tanks, which – due to their dimensions – often become a significant element of the landscape once installed on site. Parameters such as the colour of the outer shell, brand identification (e.g. logos, information stickers) and the aesthetics of the tank itself, as well as its accessories, can help to ensure that the tank blends in harmoniously with its surroundings and does not represent a visually negative intrusion into the landscape.
Bespoke tailor-made steel tanks are our speciality. Whether you are looking for a 3,000 litre LPG tank, a tank holding 100,000 litres of oil, steel diesel tanks, steel fuel tanks or an industrial tank for a specific medium – contact us! We will suggest a suitable product and its parameters, and prepare transport, so that the tanks you order arrive safely and on time at the construction site.
