Tanks may be colored for aesthetics, branding, chemical identification and to reduce transmission of radiant heat through the plastic. In this article, explore advantages and disadvantages of each option for coloring polyethylene chemical tanks.
In this article, we’ll highlight the advantages of high-density crosslinked polyethylene and also pinpoint when OR-1000™ is the appropriate option.
In this video, we'll review how we insulate polyethylene chemical storage tanks at Poly Processing. The insulation maintains the temperature of the chemical being stored.
If the very first question your chemical tank supplier asks isn’t, “So, tell me, what kind of chemical are you storing in this tank?”, you are doing it wrong. Let’s look at why it’s so important to get your chemical storage system right based on the chemical being stored.
One natural event that could potentially lead to catastrophic risk, resulting in a complete failure of a chemical storage tank system, is an earthquake. Let’s explore steps to take to protect your chemical storage tank in the event of an earthquake.
Let’s examine the challenges of fiberglass tanks and fiberglass tank repair to determine if fiberglass tanks are a wise choice for chemical storage.
Anytime a chemical tank is located outside, it’s exposed to the elements, such as sun, wind, and rain. This article will explore solutions to protect outdoor polyethylene storage tanks from UV damage.
In addition to physical treatment, such as screening and filtering processes, and biological treatment, which includes oxidation ponds and lagoons, chemicals are essential in wastewater treatment. Let’s look at the chemicals used during the wastewater treatment process, and highlight the chemical storage considerations.
