What do you mean by Chemical Storage Tank

A chemical can be a highly oxidized and potent liquid that cannot be stored in regular day-to-day containers. Their chemical composition can sometimes melt or decay normal plastic-based storage units and corrode metallic storage shells. At Envigaurd, we have a specialized storage unit called a chemical storage tank to tackle this storage issue and safely transport these chemical substances over large distances.

Depending on the type of industry and the client’s specific requirements, chemical storage tanks can be custom manufactured based on the material used and the specialized molding process. The manufacturing also needs to implement the chemical’s specific properties to be stored, so a minimum amount of knowledge in chemistry will be a bonus for any client. Knowing the chemical composition will help prevent the decay of the particular chemical storage tank and cross away any possibility of leakage.

So, in summary, the main factors one should consider when buying a chemical tank are the properties of the chemical in question and how it interacts with the material, size, and scale of the tank for ease of storage and transportation, the overall budget of the purchase to have an efficient expenditure based on the goods, manufacture, and logistics involved to not overspend for a minimum requirement project.

Types of Chemical Storage Tank

Here we would like to know about the different types of industrial chemical tanks used in the market today serving a variety of applications. Broadly, these are classified as three different types of storage tanks; namely:

Stainless steel chemical storage tanks

Stainless steel-based tanks are used for rough and heavy usage. These tanks are subjected to tough conditions based on highly variable temperature fluctuations and strong corrosive components. A high vacuum environment can wear out the underlying material if not manufactured properly. 

These are often expensive due to the high quality of materials used by chemical tank manufacturers, thus providing high durability and efficiency. Some recently manufactured variants of these types of tanks can hold up to 600,000 gallons of chemicals in each tank. Even in this one will get the option to choose from different subsets, these can be the following:

  • 316 Steel Chemical Storage Tanks:

316-grade stainless steel is a molybdenum-based austenitic (an allotrope of iron) stainless steel variant manufactured to provide high resistance pitting and corrosion, especially in high quantity chloride-based environments. Manufacturing these kinds of storage thanks to the reinforced double layered welding process will maintain its hold for years in the long run. A high saline environment and heavy-duty applications are particularly suited for these kinds of tanks, utilizing the best anti-corrosion layering to store liquid, bringing down other storage solutions.

  • 304 Steel Chemical Storage Tanks:

Make from about 20% chromium and 11% nickel, this is the most common kind of stainless steel used in the market today due to its high corrosion resistance, ease of manufacture, and its property to easy be formed into various kind of shapes. It is also less magnetic than regular steel and is has low electrical and thermal conductivity than carbon steel, making it an excellent chemical storage option as the hazards of leakage and accidental combustion are greatly reduced.

  • Carbon Steel Storage Tanks:

It does not necessarily come under the stainless steel tag, but it’s still a viable option in the steel tank category. These kind of storage tanks are great for storing chemicals which are not particularly corrosive.  Since the main component here is carbon, these tanks are strong and durable. Also, these are not very ductile, meaning they do not easily form flexible shapes, so sometimes, these are less preferred than the other stainless steel tank variants.

  • Nickel Alloy Chemical Storage Tanks:

 The main component being nickel, when used with other elements like copper, molybdenum, tungsten, etc., gives a strong combination encompassing properties of all these elements, coupled with outstanding corrosion resistance for strong reduction based environments.

Polyethylene Chemical Storage Tanks

These are the most versatile chemical storage tanks available in the market today. High strength, rigidity, and affordability than the stainless steel variants are available as linear polyethylene and cross-linked polyethylene-based tanks, each having its properties and advantages. Also, these are manufactured using pre-made precise molds, thereby reducing any human or machine-related error in manufacturing.

  • Linear Polyethylene:

It is a low-pressure polyethylene used mainly for storage purposes due to its outstanding stress resistance. External environmental pressure deals little to no damage to these materials. These are also less expensive than their cross-linked counterpart hence does not provide the latter’s high durability and efficiency. However, going with the cheaper option, in the long run, can lead to extra maintenance costs over time.

  • Cross-linked polyethylene:

High mass per unit volume-based cross-linked polyethylene is a highly insulating, tear-resistant material. The cross-linking greatly increases the environmental stress cracking, whereas the rigidity and hardness take a minor hit. The degree of cross-linking also determines the market price of these tanks. Taking into consideration to what extent you want the product to handle the stress imposed on it and making an educated decision based on it will be beneficial in the long run.

Mold-based manufacturing helps in maintaining the precise size and capacity of storage tanks. Some chemical tank manufacturers allow customized molds for a variety of industrial purposes. Keeping the pointers in mind about the chemical and type of storage before buying will be the key to a valuable purchase.

  • Fiberglass Chemical Storage Tanks

These are FRP chemical tanks that are mainly used for the storage of water. Although some diluted heavily chemicals can be stored. These tanks are combustion resistant, durable, and do not age that rapidly, meaning they will give your storage needs a long productive life.

Where are Chemical Storage Tanks used

Chemical storage tanks have a wide variety of applications in chemical storage as well as general industries. Every manufacturing plant and transport service needs storage capabilities optimum performance in their campuses. It is also used for chemical manufacturing for research, labs, and other manufacturing industries.

However, the extent of utilization of these products cannot be generalized per se. The usage varies on a case-by-case basis, no matter the industry. To state some particular examples:
  • Storage of fertilizers
  • Septic tanks
  • Oil extraction systems
  • Natural gas storage

These are just a handful of uses of these products. Unless particularly mentioned, these are also used for general purpose applications like storage of water and waste. Radioactive substances and nuclear waste from power plants are also stored in specialized radioactive chemical storage tanks. These are layered and coated to hold radioactive waste for years to come without undergoing any sort of decay. 

The above containers are in turn stored in another type of chemical storage tank, which is constructed underground and prevents any accidental leakage to the surface. These are extremely high-scale uses of such products, showing the importance these have in maintaining essential requirements everywhere. 

Chemical storage tanks are necessary for the chemical industry and in other industries in the sector that are branched together. The storage requirements in these sister branches vary, but the underlying principle and the types of containers used for the purpose remain the same. The following can be interrelated with each other based on the similarity of the products used:

  • Industrial fuel storage:

Petroleum storage tanks are used for storing organic and non-organic fuel. It is mostly used for transporting volatile liquids, vapors, and fuels used across the industry. These also come in 2 types: Aboveground and underground. We have all probably seen both of these variants in use; above-ground tanks are used more frequently as the costs involved are more upfront and less construction cost. Compared to underground storage tanks, about 10% of the tank’s total volume is buried underground as per regulatory authorities because of the hazardous materials I containment.

  • Industrial Oil Storage:

Industrial oil reservoirs are located in almost all geographical locations. This bulk chemical storage is either used for consumption or is processed by the industry themselves based on their needs. There is a lot of extent to the safety procedures that these large-scale industry-grade tanks should need to follow to get the regulatory approval. Most of the time, it’s been dealing with the product that will eventually go into food supplies.

  • Industrial Hot Water Storage:

Continuous supply of hot water at a steady interval is necessary for several manufacturing plants to keep pumping into the furnaces to process. The tanks used for this purpose are certified to hold extremely high water temperatures with the minimum amount of dissipation. The temperatures here are optimally regulated to fit the industry-grade certification these types of tanks achieve.

  • Industrial Water and Liquid Storage:

Water and liquid storage is a broad category that comes with their specific applications. Industrial liquids like kerosene, waste oil, and jet A grade petroleum have their intrinsic properties, which require specific materials for storage construction. Also, the storage volume in these needs to be regulated as these are a bit leakage-prone. Furthermore, the classification of these is as follows: onion tanks, bladder pillow tanks, fiberglass-based tanks, poly tanks, welded tanks, and corrugated steel tanks.

  • Industrial Plastic Storage:

 Though a bit limited, there is a certain application where there is a need to store molten plastic for molding purposes. These types of tanks are kept separate from other storage containers to prevent contamination between the gases.

  • Industrial Gas Storage:

Particularly used for transportation purposes. These kinds are the lightest of the bunch, which accounts for their ease of travel around an area. Specially fitted tanks in trucks and other vehicles make this a viable storage option for various needs. The types of industrial gases are also taken into account during manufacturing, whether CNG, petrol, or diesel. The classifications are: floating roof tanks and bullet tanks.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Chemical Storage Tanks

Chemical storage tanks are necessary for saving and efficiently utilizing the raw materials required for manufacture and proper transportation of the finished product and containing and disposing of the waste products. However, it is not the say that these tanks don’t come with their own set of restrictions and banes for usage. Every cranny should be analyzed and considered before deciding on the purchase of such industrial chemical storage tanks.

Advantages
  • Corrosion-free storage:

As mentioned before, these tanks are specially manufactured to hold highly reductive chemicals, which cause rapid wearing out of normally manufactured storage solutions. These tanks can hold the harshest of industrial liquids with relative ease.

  • Proper waste disposal:

Waste products from chemical industries are particularly difficult to get rid of. Owing to their acidity, corrosiveness, and extremely high half-life for radioactive waste, a proper disposal system should be in place for them. Chemical storage tanks provide a means to store this waste safely as opposed to just dumping them. This way, when an efficient solution is devised to get rid of these products, the buried container barrels can be disposed of with them.

  • Combustion resistant and fireproof:

As always, the materials that acid storage tank manufacturers are dealing with are highly volatile and hazardous. The high-grade insulation and sealing in these containers keep it as a thermodynamically closed system; hence, no energy exchange occurs with the outside environment. This eliminates any risk of spontaneous combustion or accidental fires within a workplace.

  • Cost-effective:

High-grade chemical storage tanks may come at a high upfront price, but it gives tremendous value in the long run. More high-quality materials used for manufacturing will provide more corrosion resistance and less aging and wear over time. This is why proper due diligence is necessary to be done to make an educated decision.

Disadvantages
  • Maintenance costs can be high:

Routine inspections are required to be done with these products to manage the level of wear and tear and reduce the possibility of leakage. Even though these are great on their own, proper care should be taken of the chemical storage tank material to maintain these tanks at their optimum level.

  • Replacement is difficult:

In the event of any tank being contaminated and not being able to hold the liquid in anymore, transferring them to other containers can be a difficult task and may increase the risk of spillage.

  • Environmental risk in case of leakage:

If for any reason the tank leaks the liquid within it, and it isn’t properly contained, the environmental risk it possesses can be a mammoth task to rectify and can result in authoritative action.

  • High manufacturing and installation costs:

 High-grade stainless steel and raw materials are expensive and sometimes hard to procure, leading to high manufacturing charges. Installation of these tanks requires expert-level handling and can only be done by certified professionals, further increasing the cost of the project.

  • Not every tank can be transportable:

Though most of the chemical storage tanks can be transported, some of the heavy-duty tanks need to be permanently fitted within a designated area, which is mostly used to contain radioactive or high volatility grade liquids at a large scale. These liquids do not necessarily have great interaction with chemical tanks, which are suitable for transportation, thus providing a challenge in logistics.  

How Chemical Storage Tanks is helpful to Industry

Chemical storage tanks are utilized in numerous industrial applications. The chemical industry is mainly the manufacturing sector for chemical compounds supplied to other consumers, research, and laboratory purposes.

The natural gas, diesel, aviation industries utilize extremely large capacity chemical tanks for bulk chemical storage for a necessary purpose. Also, these tanks are lightweight and fitted on vehicles capable of dispensing them at will from the valves fitted within them. Toxic waste disposal tanks like septic tanks and nuclear waste disposal tanks are used in the energy industry and facilitate clean disposal.

These tanks are also used in the processed food industry as mixers and oil dispensers. Due to their anti-corrosive manufacturing, the food products do not get contaminated, and the product keeps functioning effectively throughout the year. Water storage and purifier systems are also fitted with chemical storage tanks for treatment and purification.

Chemical Storage Tank Working Principle
Chemical tank manufacturers follow many design principles during the manufacturing of industrial chemical storage tanks. The factors which are taken into account are the following:
  • Primary properties of the chemical to be stored and the materials which are resistant to such chemicals
  • Keeping the ideal storage conditions of the particular chemical in mind, the tank has to account for variables such as pressure, temperature, erosive potential, corrosion scale, and dissipation rates
  • Essential plumbing components required to dispose of the chemicals and the interaction between these components and the chemical
  • Designing the tank according to the material safety datasheet (MSD) provided by the chemical manufacturer to suit their chemical storage tank safety standards
  • External conditions like atmospheric pressure, surrounding temperatures, vacuum interaction, heat and cold and how it affects the inside and outside of the tank
  • The time duration of the storage and purpose of the tank to make it suitable for usage throughout its lifetime
Keeping the above criteria in mind, the tanks are made to comply with the regulations set by the concerning authorities. Some basic design components in most of the tanks are:
  • Double-wall coating to reduce the risk of leakage and spillage
  • Insulating layering inside and outside the tank so that the temperatures do not waiver from the necessary values
  • Heat dissipation systems are in place with most tankers as even a little heat can cause combustion in these volatile liquids
  • Sensory systems are installed for continuous monitoring of temperature and pressure
  • Automatic valve systems prevent discharge and loss in case of any failure, preventing the escalation of the situation
  • All insulation used for the entire construction is fireproof
  • Pressure relief mechanisms are kept in place to prevent excessive pressure build-up as high pressure can also cause combustion
  • Tanks are always evenly spaced out to prevent any sort of interaction and contamination
These are the principles in place for the efficient and safe working of chemical storage tanks and entire systems that function with them.
