5000 Litre Chemical Storage Tank
5000 litre chemical storage tank manufactured in MPDE with centre mounted man way access.
5000 Litre Chemical Tank ST5000 Introduction
The ST5000 is a chemical storage tank with a capacity of 5000 litres, designed specifically for use in water treatment, effluent treatment or process applications with dimensions of 2000 Ø x 2500 H (mm).
The 5000 litre chemical tank is manufactured in U.V stabilised MDPE (Medium Density PolyEthylene), which is rotatory moulded in the UK to provide a free standing chemical vessel suitable for both storage or process applications.
5000 Litre Chemical Tank Equipment Mounting
The ST5000 is designed for use as a chemical storage vessel or for use in process applications. To aid in the processes including water treatment and effluent treatment the ST5000 can be fitted with a strengthening plate, mixer bridge, or a combination of both to ensure that industrial mixers, dosing pumps, dip mounting pH, Redox, conductivity, and other submersible sensors such as dissolved oxygen and liquid level sensors can be mounted on to the tank.
5000 Litre Chemical Storage Tank with Man Way Access
To facilitate periodic maintenance and commissioning the ST5000 has a man-way access point which measures 620mm Ø. With two handles moulded into the lid of the man-way access point - the lid can be rotated to ensure that it is locked into place.
ST5000 Pipework and Other Modifications
Designed to be suitable as both a 5000 litre chemical storage tank as well as a 5000 litre a processing tank the ST5000 can be manufactured with a number of modifications in place.
We can modify the ST5000 to specification which can include the addition of internal pipework for inlets / outlets as well as external pipework terminating in unions fittings, flanges or BSP threaded pipework.
To complement the addition of pipework we can also add actuated valves whether manually actuated, pneumatically actuated or electrically actuated, as well as solenoid valves and other in flow equipment.
Double Confined 5000 Litre Tank
Where the ST5000 is to be located without an external containment pit, bund or sump we can provide the ST5000 manufactured as a double skinned tank.
The double skinned tanks are sometimes referred to as self-bunded, or as a double confined 5000 litre chemical storage tank. This is where the 5000 Litre chemical tank is manufactured with a second outer covering around the primary internal tank.
In the event of the primary tank becoming compromised or failing - the external second "skin" provides a containment bund ensuring that the chemical contents do not leak and is designed to satisfy health & safety legislation.
5000 Litre Chemical Tank For an SG up to 2.0
Our standard ST5000 is designed to work with solutions with a total specific gravity (SG) of up to 1.5 SG.
Where chemicals are being used where the Specific Gravity is greater than 1.5 SG we can offer the ST5000 manufactured with thicker MDPE walls to provide a chemical storage tank for solutions with an SG up to 2.0 SG.
When considering a chemical tank suitable for a specific gravity of up to 2.0 SG please consider the additional weight of the tank.
ST5000 Deliveries and Installation
Our ST5000 chemical storage tanks are loaded onto a same day carrier at our facility in Stafford UK and delivered straight to your site address. We're able to offer deliveries to main land Great Britain, Northern Ireland and Southern Ireland using our same day carrier facility.
To aid delivery of our 5000 litre capacity chemical storage tanks - these are manufactured complete with hoisting points located on top of the tanks. These are designed to enable the tanks to be connected to a crane and lifted straight from the back of our carrier and into the location required.
Where cranes aren't available please don't hesitate to get in touch and we can advise on safe handling techniques.
5000 Litre Dosing Tank Features & Benefits
As a free standing 5000 Litre chemical storage tank the ST5000 is manufactured in UV stabilised black MDPE making it suitable for a wide range of chemical reagents including low vapour pressure chemical such as sodium hypochlorite where the chemical doesn't have a specific gravity higher than an SG of 1.5 SG.
The ST5000 can be supplied as a base chemical storage tank measuring 2000 Ø x 2500 H (mm) and is constructed so that a strengthening plate can be added to the top of the tank to support tank mounted equipment, as well as a mixer bridge or a combination of both a strengthening plate and mixer bridge.
In addition to tank mounted equipment we can offer the ST5000 with a number of modifications designed to ensure that the 5000 litre chemical storage tank can integrated into an existing or new process. These modifications include the addition of pipework and valves with flange, union or BSP threaded terminations.
As well as modifying the standard ST5000 we can offer a number of alternatives during manufacture - including strengthening the tank walls to make the ST5000 suitable for use with solutions where the specific gravity can be as high as 2.0 SG.
In addition to increasing the mechanical strength for chemical solutions with a high specific gravity - we can offer the ST5000 with a secondary chamber to create a double skinned, or self bunded tank. Designed to provide containment in the event that the primary chamber is compromised - the double skinned tanks are designed to ensure compliance with health and safety legislation where a bund sump or pit isn't available.
