LIQUID STORAGE

In liquid storage tanks systems, Tank Connection manufactures the #1 bolted storage tank available worldwide. Tank Connection's LIQ Fusion 8000 FBE™ coating system is a stronger system than porcelain enamel (glass) and is superior to all field applied storage tank coating systems. Our Aqua AGT 2020™ coating technology is formulated to address problems witnessed in glass coatings provided by other suppliers in water storage applications.

At Tank Connection, we rightfully claim the #1 steel water tank design and liquid coating system available.

The facts on Tank Connection and potable water storage:

  • Tank Connection is the only storage tank supplier worldwide that designs, manufactures and installs all four types of steel water storage tanks including bolted RTP storage tanks, field-welded storage tanks, shop-welded storage tanks, and hybrid storage tank design.
  • Our precision RTP (rolled, tapered panel) construction is the #1 bolted steel storage tank design selected worldwide. The best features of bolted storage tank and field-welded storage tank construction have been combined together in the RTP design. It remains unmatched in the industry in all category ratings.
  • Our proprietary LIQ Fusion FBE™ is NSF 61 Certified and is unmatched in performance. LIQ Fusion 8000 FBE™ is a stronger system than porcelain enamel/glass for potable water storage tanks.
  • Our AQUA AGT 2020™ glass/porcelain enamel coating system is superior to other glass coatings in its formulation and two-fire process.
  • The RTP design is the only bolted tank design that is recognized as a replacement for field-weld storage tank construction.
  • Bolted tank sizes are available in sizes up to 8.2 million gallons (95 up to 30,284 cubic meters). Field-welded liquid storage tanks are available in sizes up to 25 million gallons (380 up to 94,620 cubic meters).
  • RTP bolted storage tank construction is easily containerized and shipped worldwide.
  • Tank Connection's field construction processes are rated top in the industry. We utilize a synchronized jacking process that allows potable water tanks to be built from grade level. This process receives the highest ratings for point quality control and safety in the field.
  • Bolted storage tank construction outdates API 12B construction and other FP (flat panel) designs in potable water applications. Why purchase a ‘C’-rated tank when the BEST ‘A’-rated steel water storage tanks can be installed for the same costs? API 12B (flanged panel) construction is an outdated tank product in potable water storage applications.
  • Tank Connection is a vertically integrated company, which promotes our global position as a competitive price leader.
  • With over 2,100 years of combined experience in storage tank applications, Tank Connection stands alone as a global leader in potable water storage.
