Small double wall tanks
September 4, 2008
Assmann Corporation’s line of double wall tanks, containment vessels that provide primary and secondary containment in one integral space-saving unit, includes smaller tanks at 20, 40, 65, 85, 120 and 165 gallon units, as well as larger 150 and 250 gallon units. The tanks are designed for storing hazardous and corrosive chemicals inside or outside; Assmann Corporation’s IMT system consists of a primary inner tank and a secondary outer tank. The secondary outer tank has 120 percent capacity of the inner tank, which exceeds EPA standards for secondary containment basins. Inner tank dome overlaps the outer tank’s sidewall, which prevents rain, snow and debris from entering the secondary containment tank. All eight sizes are equipped with a molded-in, recessed pump shelf in the top of the primary tank that contains small chemical spills and is designed for installing chemical pumps and metering equipment. A molded-in sump directly below the pump shelf, permits suction lines to be lowered onto the sump area, allowing for maximum drainage of chemicals with top discharge assemblies. The tank also features a recessed lower fitting flat that allows fittings to penetrate through the secondary containment wall and into the primary tank’s sump which allows full flooded suction for outlet assemblies.
