Storage tanks - Horizontal and underground storage tanks

With respect to design and manufacture, horizontal cylindrical tanks possess some special features. They are always relatively thick walled and the horizontal cylinder profile is fixed to prevent flattening with respect to the flow of material.

Dimensions of the tanks:

  • The maximum average diameter is 3,600mm, the length is up to 12,000mm.
  • The length is governed rather by the capabilities of the axial expansion of the tank. Therefore, with underground (buried) tanks, it is more often restricted, being up to a limit of 6,000 mm, i.e. a capacity of up to 60m3
  • For higher volumes stored underground, we connect more tanks together.
  • This is done, for example, as in the large retension capacity necessary for containing torrential water.
