There are storage tanks in our life. How many kinds you know?
1. Water tanks (hot water system or heating system) are commonly seen inside the homes. Alternatively, they can be put outside the house for recycling purposes. They recycle rain water going back to the home for reuse and filtering.
2. Fuel tanks are secured containers, fire proof, and resistant to heat. Generally, fuel is a combustible substance that’s why a special design is needed to fit the substance inside. Substance can react with the materials that the storage tank is made of. Accurate density is required to avoid any negative reaction.
3. Gas and oil tanks are associated with the heating systems used for storing gas or oil. This gives power to the boiler inside the house. These tanks need careful consideration and secured storage for protective reasons and flammability.
4. Pallet tanks are the least recognized classification for storing. Oftentimes, they are intended for storage plants, factories and depots largely to contain food stuffs. Liquids and components normally come in medium density with heavy-duty plastic such as polyethylene. They have channels and legs at the bottom making pallets to be forklift-able for a stress-free stacking and manoeuvring.
