Tanks are generally designed to load, store, and dispense liquid materials. Some of the most common liquid materials they can handle are water, oil, and food products.
But before tanks can carry out their main functions, they must possess certain qualities to make them effective and efficient. For one, tanks should be made from materials that are corrosion-resistant and long-lasting. Tanks should likewise employ heat preservation mechanisms so that evaporation will be reduced. And for special cases, tanks must be food-grade to prevent contamination of stored products. Other qualities of great tanks are sustainable, robust, and versatile.
To date, there are many tank options that industries can use. One of these options is the horizontal tank.
An Overview of Horizontal Tanks
Horizontal tanks typically boast small dimensions, allowing them to be moved and mounted very quickly. These tanks are being used widely within the agricultural industry. Beverage and other food-related industries likewise maximise them in holding and storing products.
Compared to vertical tanks, these industries prefer horizontal tanks thanks to their associated benefits. Some of the benefits of horizontal tanks are as follows:
Single vs. Double-Skinned Tanks
There are two types of horizontal tanks that industries can consider. These are single and double-skinned horizontal tanks.
Single skin horizontal tanks are tanks that can cater to non-aggressive and eco-friendly liquids. These tanks often have one or several sections that are further produced with separating walls inside the shell. Even though single skin horizontal tanks do not deal with harsh materials, they are still made from materials that do not rust and get damaged easily. They also have flexible outlets for quick access.
Double-skinned horizontal tanks, alternatively, are designed to cater to the oil and hazardous substances as they maximise a vessel that has two shells and a free space in between. The area between the two shells, which is called the interstice, is comprised of antifreeze o gaseous nitrogen. Usually, these tanks are used to store, deliver, and handle different types of strong substances thanks to their reliable spill protection, sustainable construction, and depressurisation detection.
