What are panel tanks?
Panel tanks is a modular system which enables a tank of any particular size to be constructed. In simple words panel tanks are used in industries, commercial farms for storing a liquid substance and thus a panel tank is storage for liquid material. Panel tanks are both insulated and non-insulated. An insulated panel tank can prevent heat and cold insulation. These types of tanks are required in extreme temperature setups. For instance, in machinery rooms where humidity is high. Non-insulated tanks on the other hand do not possess this special feature and are preferred by companies that do not have such specific requirements.
What are the types of panel tanks?
There is no specific distinct categorization of panel tanks. However, on the basis of the material it can store we can group them in the following three main types.
- Water tanks: Panel tanks are also used for storing waters. This storage of water is helpful both economically and environmentally. Just as rain water harvesting help us to collect water and save it for future use, the same way a water tank helps to save water for its different uses. These tanks can be used by households, farmers and industries also.
- Effluent tanks: An effluent refers to the liquid waste that is sent out from factories where sewage is dealt with, usually flowing into the river. Having effluent tanks turns out to be environment-friendly. Also, in the cases of chemical effluents that are required by the farmers for irrigation purposes, these effluent tanks are important.
- Tanks for specific purposes: There are also tanks that are specially designed to meet specific requirements. This store the particular material for which they are made to store. One such example is a molasses tank. These tanks facilitate the movement of the liquid material from one place or another, across seas also.
All these multiple storing abilities of panel tanks make it the best storage for liquid materials. Different panel tanks possess different features. When one plans to buy a storage tank one needs to look carefully into its features. The important features of panel tanks are durability (i.e., the tank should be able to withstand heavy impact, heavy weather and loads etc.), easy maintenance, flexible sizes and shapes, can be relocated easily, good UV resistance characteristics and no risk of leakage. These features make it easier for the panel tank to store liquid materials and work without many problems.
