Protectoplas | Speciality Storage Tanks

Specialty Chemical and Water Storage Tanks


Speciality storage tanks are any tanks other than the standard conical or flat bottom tanks. These can include square, rectangular, horizontal leg tanks, elliptical leg tanks, totes and open top tanks that are utilized in a variety of applications. These come in varying shapes, sizes, and capacities and are found more commonly in specific applications like power washing, brine making/applying, waste water treatment, dewatering, settling and bottling systems.


For some applications plastic is not the best solution when it comes to heat or certain caustics. Heat is usually the main driver for the need to have a steel tank in lieu of plastic, when batches need to be made or stored over 120 degrees, plastic will struggle to hold its integrity. We can provide steel or stainless steel tanks in the same sizes as we offer any of our plastic tanks, and we can incorporate the same features as offered in plastic when it comes to many of the options.


The industry as a whole has shifted away from Fiberglass but there are still many applications to which it can be used. These tanks can be designed and made in a variety of sizes to ensure it meets your needs. Many of the tank features offered in our plastic line can be carried forward here.
