Chemical tanks are specially fitted out, designed and purpose built for use in:
- Mining and Ore Processing
- Industrial Waste Storage
- Water and Sewage Treatment
- Petro-chemical Storage
- Fertiliser Storage
Chemical tanks offer protection from a wide range of acids, alkalis, liquid fertilisers as well as weathering, spillage and corrosive fumes. When supplied with the type of chemical to be contained we select a special resin usually an Epoxy Vinyl Ester to suit. The interior of these tanks is an impervious, chemical resistant corrosion barrier.
Chemical/fertiliser resistant tanks are commonly built using the filament winding “Hoop-Chop” method to meet design specifications. This process produces tanks with enormous strength and a perfectly smooth mirror interior finish, the correct material is used to give the ultimate performance required. All products are post cured to ensure total quality and strength. The fertiliser tanks can come with Newell’s bypass agitation systems or can be custom built to your own design incorporating “air” or mechanical agitation.
Newell Composites Pty Ltd chemical resistant tanks have been used in some major projects including;
– “Riverland Water” WTP upgrade in South Australia,
Sydney Water Project in New South Wales
