CHEMICAL AND CORROSION RESISTANT
Most chemicals which attack other products will not harm Spirolite™
tanks. They resist over 700 chemicals in various combinations and
concentrations, and under different temperature conditions. Only certain
solvents, aromatic hydrocarbons, phenolics, chlorinated hydrocarbons,
fats, and some oils have any effect on these tanks. Spirolite™ tanks will not
rust or decay and they are not subject to electrolytic or galvanic corrosion.
LONG LASTING AND MAINTENANCE FREE
Harsh environmental conditions and the degrading effects of
ultraviolet rays will not affect Spirolite™ tanks. They are built to last.
They will not rot or discolor and require no painting.
TOUGH AND STRONG
Rugged Spirolite™ tanks are made from high-density, high-molecular
weight polyethylene (HDPE) using a resin tailored to produce tanks
that are tough, strong, and reliable. Spirolite™ tanks are manufactured
using an exclusive process by which a specially designed extrusion is
continuously wound upon a mandrel. Heat fusion techniques create
homogeneous bonds that are permanent, reliable, and completely leak
proof. Spirolite™ tanks are practically shatterproof.
VARIETY OF FITTINGS AND ACCESSORIES
A wide variety of fittings and accessories including flanged inlets and
outlets, vents, valves, sight glasses, and float gauges are available with
Spirolite™ tanks. Custom equipped interiors may also be provided on
RANGE OF SIZES
Standard Spirolite™ tanks are offered in a range of capacities from 315
to 10,000 gallons. Non-standard sizes are available on special order.
Smooth, non-wetting surfaces minimize the possibility of substances
adhering to the interior of Spirolite™ tanks. It’s easy to clean them and easy
to change contents. And because they can be refilled quickly, fewer storage
tanks are needed. Fewer tanks and efficient utilization saves you money.
NON-TOXIC AND NON ABSORBENT
These tanks will not contaminate their contents nor will the contents
react with the tank. They are practically free from taste or odor and
will not promote algae or bacterial growth. They also have good flavor
retention and barrier properties.
In many applications, Spirolite™ tanks are 4 to 6 times more abrasion
resistant than steel. This product is suited for handling slurry solutions
that require agitation.
Spirolite™ tanks are significantly lighter than tanks made of traditional
materials. Their light makes them easier to install. Spirolite™ tanks
require no expensive structural alterations or special handling equipment.
Light weight also means reduced shipping and transportation costs.
