When handling different kinds of chemicals, whether they are used for work or water sanitation, it is important to safely contain chemicals. For effective water tank management, safe chemical storage allows you to avoid the possibility of water contamination or the creation of a chemical hazard. Here are the materials you should look for to ensure your water tank stores that precious water safely.

Steel Tank Liners

For over 150 years, people have depended on steel to safely contain chemicals. This material has also been used to transport water and more volatile chemicals. For these reasons, steel is perfect for water sanitation tanks. Installing a steel tank liner comes with multiple benefits, including increased durability and corrosion resistance. In this way, you will not worry about whether your water maintains its standard of sanitation throughout years of use. These liners, like any, do require cleaning every now and then. But, with a steel tank liner, you can rest assured that your tank is a safe place to store water.

PVC Tank Liner

While many people shy away from using a plastic liner, these kinds of liners also have their applications in the world of water sanitation. To safely contain chemicals with a plastic liner, it is important to clean them within the indicated duration of time. With that mentioned, if you are looking for a liner that will fit flexibly into your water containment tank, the PVC tank liner is the one for you. While its best application is for concrete water tanks, all water tanks will be enhanced by the presence of a PVC tank liner. These liners ensure water safety and optimum sanitation.

Alternative Liners

Among other liners available for your water tank, there are vinyl ester liners, epoxy linings, cement-based liners, and zinc liners. Each of these liners has its specific benefits and drawbacks. For example, vinyl ester liners display extremely high resistance to corrosive materials and to heat. Epoxy linings are less chemically resistant, but they are ideal for the moisture of a water tank. Cement-based liners are usually applied in a cement water tank situation and they have high waterproofing qualities. While it does not interact well with bases and strong acids, a zinc liner is an extremely effective liner due to its nonporous qualities.

All of these tank liners are great when it comes to safely containing chemicals, so reach out to us today to learn more about each!
