A water storage tank holds clean water from your reverse osmosis system or other filtration systems until you're ready to use it. Water is forced out of pressurised storage tanks on demand, whereas atmospheric tanks require a booster pump to maintain pressure. Water storage tanks are available in a wide range of sizes, designs, and standards, and can be utilised for residential, commercial, industrial, or municipal purposes.
What are Liquid Holding & Storage Tanks in WWTP?
Water is captured and processed in a water storage tank for later use. When you turn on your kitchen faucet, water is moved from the tank to your tap, providing you with fresh water on demand. Water is filtered gently using reverse osmosis devices, one drop at a time. A reverse osmosis storage tank allows customers to have access to this water whenever they need it, rather than having to wait for the system to fill each glass separately.
Water storage tanks are used in the water treatment industry for a variety of applications and come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and layouts. Water storage tanks are available in a wide range of sizes and designs, from a small 5-gallon reverse osmosis tank under your sink to a big 120-gallon pressure tank. Large, outdoor atmospheric tanks can hold thousands of gallons of rainwater, well water, or fire suppression. UV inhibitors are commonly installed in these tanks to prevent algae and bacterial growth. Thermal expansion tanks prevent leaking and bursting in water heaters with a closed water supply.
How does liquid holding/ storage tanks work?
Clean water from the reverse osmosis system is stored in a water storage tank until user needs it in the house or business. The water is piped into the tank from a reverse osmosis system. The tank fills up with water until it is completely filled. Whether it's to fill a glass with crystal clear water, run a bath, or irrigate a field, the storage tank provides quick access to water when you need it.
- Manufactured entirely off-site;
- Any inlet/outlet pipe size and location are fully adjustable;
- Construction of a concrete tank is reduced in cost and time;
- Portable Steel Framed Option that can be used above or below ground;
- Options that are completely chemical resistant;
- There is no risk of confined space when installing a concrete sump.
Types of liquid Holding and storage Tanks
Holding/Storage tanks are totally pre-fabricated and delivered ‘ready to go’. Site work is limited to installing the station in a suitable trench, connecting the inlet/outlet pipes, and connecting the electrical ducts. They come in different types, such as:
1: Vertical Storage/Holding Tanks: Vertical Holding/Storage Tanks come in a variety of sizes, ranging from 1000 l to 25,000 l. These tanks are becoming a more popular alternative to typical concrete in situ concrete pump stations, which necessitate on-site installation.
2: Holding/Storage Tanks: Horizontal holding/storage tanks are ideal for keeping a variety of liquids, including abrasive liquids. They're typically utilised for sewage, wastewater, and water storage, but they're also great for rainwater harvesting, storing sewage/wastewater/process water, and serving as firefighting tanks and surface water attenuation.
3: Portable Above/Below Ground Steel Reinforced Holding/Storage Tanks: Steel Reinforced Holding/Storage tanks do not require a concrete surround and can be built above or partially/fully below ground.
They are an excellent choice when a temporary/emergency/semi-permanent liquid holding/storage solution is needed, such as for storing sewage on site, as mobile holding/storage tanks, or as a mobile pump station. Steel Reinforced Pump Stations can be transported on the back of a conventional truck from one location to another.
4: Holding Tanks that are Chemically Resistant: Storage tanks can be coated with unique coatings that make them resistant to almost any abrasive liquid. The tanks are suited for a wide range of applications and can be treated inside to provide chemical resistance to acids, alkalis (bases), oxidising agents, salts, and other chemicals.
