Above Ground Waste Storage Tanks - Vertical

Product Description

Equally at home either as a WRAS-approved potable water tank or as a waste receiver, if you need additional liquid storage then these Above Ground (Vertical) Storage Tanks are the ideal solution for a wide range of applications. They come in wall thicknesses to take liquids up to a specific gravity of 1 (water) and 1.5 (slurry).

With capacities from 2,500 litres to 30,000 litres and the ability to link tanks together, you can easily create exactly the storage volumes 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.

A range of drainage options is available: from 2" to 4" ball valves and typically using threaded BSP fittings with camlock or Bauer connectors.

Technical Advantages

  • Built in lifting points
  • Flat base for stability
  • Self-supporting roofs for added strength
  • Moulded inserts for outlet connections
  • 620mm vented lid

MULTIPLE APPLICATIONS

  • Bulk waste storage (e.g. flushed toilet waste, recirculating flush portable toilet waste)
  • Bulk water storage
  • Back-up emergency drink water supply
  • Food industry
  • Temporary water supply for events and festivals
  • Civil engineering applications with mains water
  • Suitable for a wide range of liquid chemicals

Upgrade Kits

  • Simple 2" Linking kit with 1m Linking hose (no isolating drain valve)
  • Simple 3" Linking kit with 1m Linking hose (no isolating drain valve)
  • 2" Linking kit with 2” x 2" isolating drain valves and 1m Linking hose
  • 3" Linking kit with 2” x 3" isolating drain valves and 1m Linking hose
  • 2" WRAS-approved inlet fittings (typically mounted at top of tank)
  • 2", 3" or 4" bulkhead fittings in stainless steel
  • 2", 3" or 4" ball valves to connect with a range of hose connectors / adaptors
  • 2", 3" and 4" hose adaptors / connectors - typically camlock or Bauer
  • Heat welded flanges / fittings (requires slurry tank)
  • Mushroom vents when filling/evacuating > 500 litres per minute

Warnings

  • Fresh water has a specific gravity (SG) close to 1. This means that 1 litre of water will effectively weigh 1 KG.
  • Our potable and non-potable tanks are therefore rated at SG1.
  • Toilet waste contains faecal matter and toilet paper/tissue, which increase the specific gravity of the liquid.
  • Waste from toilet cisterns (4-6 litre flush) will have a lower SG than waste from recirculating systems, which use less water.
  • This waste is variously known as black water / sewage / toilet sewage / slurry etc.
  • Tanks for slurry are termed as "industrial" and are 150% of the weight of standard non-potable and potable water tanks (see weight chart above)
  • If you are handling / managing toilet waste, we recommend you opt for our "Slurry" tanks - same volume, thicker walls and increased weight.
  • Industrial / slurry tanks are made with increased wall thickness catering for specific gravities of contents up to 1.5
  • Any tank with heat-welded flanges / fittings will require a slurry/industrial tank
  • Consider bunded tanks to avoid spillages
  • Delivery on a 44 foot articulated lorry
  • It is the customer’s responsibilty to offload
  • A HIAB truck may be required
  • Delivery is kerbside only - the delivery driver is not indemnified to install the product
  • Only lift or move when empty
  • PLEASE CONSULT OUR LITERATURE ON CORRECT INSTALLATION OF TANKS:
    PAY PARTICULAR ATTENTION TO THE BASE REQUIRED TO SUPPORT THE TANK WHEN FULL - WE RECOMMEND A CONCRETE BASE
  • Tank base should be a minimum of (600mm) (24") larger than the diameter of the tank and should have a minimum depth of:
    > 102mm (4") for tanks up to 2,500 litres
    > 152mm (6") for tanks 4,000 litres to 10,000 litres
    > 204mm (8") for tanks over 10,000 litres
