Ladder Assemblies

Ladder Assemblies

Poly Processing’s tank ladders are available in heights from 6 to 20 feet, depending on the tank application. To determine height, ladder height equals height to top of manway rounded to the nearest foot. If height of ladder exceeds the height of the manway, subtract 1 foot.

  • Ladders are available in mild steel as well as FRP construction.
  • All ladders meet OSHA requirements.
  • Ladders are not offered on all tanks due to safety requirements. Approved systems are noted with the appropriate ladder height in the distributor price list.
  • Cages range from 7 to 8 feet and extend 4 feet above the top rung of the ladder.

Tanks with a center manway will have the additional cost of a platform to reach the ladder.

Heat Pads and Insulation

Heat Pads and Insulation

Poly Processing’s tank heating systems are specifically designed for temperature maintenance of polyethylene tanks. SilcoPad® tank heating systems maintain a desired product temperature, not to exceed 100 degrees F.

  • Each heating system consists of tank heating pad(s) and a temperature controller. The quantity and type of SilcoPad® tank heating pads required is determined by the size of the tank, the desired temperature maintenance and environmental conditions.
  • Tanks are available with standard heating systems with a Delta T of 30, 60 and 100 degrees F.
  • Tanks are typically supplied with the heating panels and a controller installed by Poly Processing. The only field connection required is a power supply to the heating system.

For technical information on poly tank heating pads and insulation, download the guide below.
 

Please contact our customer support staff if HT & I is required on a 14-foot-diameter tank.
