Tanks

ABCO tanks are renowned for their rapid installation and sturdy build. They are constructed from Bolted metal sheets of either the dimensions 1200x2880mm or 915x2880mm.

ABCO tanks are renowned for their rapid installation and sturdy construction, they are manufactured from flat steel sheets varying in thickness from 1.55mm to 3mm dependant on the size of the tank, each sheet is galvanized thus giving it extremely good durability in harsh conditions experienced here in Australia and overseas.

Each tank is specified in terms of number of sheets (circumference) and number of rings (height) as well as sheet type.  This allows ABCO tank capacities to be amazingly versatile and modifiable to each client and site requirements.

We at ABCO have perfected the construction of this style of bolted sheets tank by the use of our own manufactured lifting jacks.  With the aid of the jacks we construct our tanks from the top down, therefore if there is a roof required this can be installed complete with roof trusses and sheets without the need for cranes schaffolding and elevated work platforms and most of all permits for working at heights this greatly reduces the time spent on sites. Once the roof and / or top row of sheets have been bolted together at this point the liner can be installed, then the jacks are attached and the whole section is then evenly hoisted into the air this then allows the next row of sheets to be installed, this process is repeated until the desired tank height has been reached, it is then lowered to the ground and the jacks are removed.

Each tank is designed with an open base and can either be installed on even flat ground or a concrete ring beam, a layer of fine grade material is spread within the base of the tank and a protective cloth is laid down this protects the heavy duty tank liner that was previously attached.

Except for the top row of the tank each row is fitted with an access sheet this again during construction eleviates the classification of a confined space, the final row of sheets the access sheet is used as the permanent manway access point this allows for future access into the tank for maintenance or replacement of the liner.

There are many optional extras available from our standard range of tanks these include but not limited to

  • access ladders and platforms,
  • penetrations complete with Victaulic spools ranging from 50mm to >300mm
  • Level Indicators
  • Cyclone tie down system

Below are examples of the standard ABCO tank range however we can manufacture to suite any specifications the client may require.
