Above Ground Waste Storage Tanks - Horizontal

Product Description

If you need to transport liquids or require additional liquid storage at your premises, these Above Ground (Horizontal) Storage Tanks are the ideal solution. With WRAS-approval (black material only), these tanks are available in 5,000, 10,00 and 13,000 litres sizes, all specified to carry liquids up to a specific gravity of 1.5 (e.g. slurry). By linking tanks together you can create exactly the storage volume you require.

Applications will include emergency back-up drinking water supply through to temporary water supply at festivals and/or the storage of toilet effluent until it can be disposed of at the treatment works. For the transport of liquids, these horizontal tanks come fitted with inbuilt anti-surge baffles and pin mounting points to fasten to your vehicle. A metal mounting frame can also be specified, with or without a mounting plate to accept a suitable pump. A range of drainage options is available: from 2" to 4" ball valves and typically using threaded BSP fittings with camlock or Bauer connectors.
