Since most liquids can spill, evaporate, or seep through even the smallest opening, special consideration must made for their safe and secure handling. This usually involves building a bunding, or containment dike, around the tank, so that any leakage may be safely contained.
Some storage tanks need a floating roof in addition to or in lieu of the fixed roof and structure. This floating roof rises and falls with the liquid level inside the tank, thereby decreasing the vapor space above the liquid level. Floating roofs are considered a safety requirement as well as a pollution prevention measure for many industries including petroleum refining.
S2 Engineering (S2) manufacture stainless steel and exotic allow storage tanks to international specifications. Our Storage Tank designs are available in both vertical and horizontal models to suit site preference / physical space available. Horizontal storage tanks have capacities ranging from 2,000 to 16,000 litres whilst vertical designs have capacities ranging from 500 to 30,000 litres.
Our standard designs can also be customised to suit client/application requirements.
