Cone Bottom storage tanks are perfect when you need nearly
complete drainage from the tank and you need access to the
inside to mix or add powder to a mixture.
Mixing batches of liquids is a common application.
We sell polyethylene cone bottom
chemical storage tanks
ranging in size from 10,000 gallons down to 125 gallons.
Most have a closed top but some are Open Top Cone Bottom
tanks. The polyethylene
we use is HDPE. HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) is
sometimes referred to incorrectly as HDLPE to differentiate
it from XLPE (Crosslink Polyethylene). HDPE has great
chemical resistance and is the most commonly used plastic
for storage tanks, but sometimes it is not the best choice.
to check which plastics work best with your chemical storage
application.. HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) is
the most widely used due to its low cost, corrosion
resistance and good chemical compatibility. HDPE is sometimes
conveniently but incorrectly referred to as HDLPE. For
storage applications that require temperatures up to 200 F.,
we offer polypropylene storage tanks. For applications
that require temperatures up to 300 F., we offer Kynar
(PVDF) storage tanks.
