So many industries require the use of more aggressive chemicals at some point along the production process. Strong chemicals can form the backbone of industries from pharmaceuticals to water treatment. However, storing these more aggressive chemicals can be stressful. A potential leak could cause harm to human health or environmental damage. As such, it is of utmost importance to always invest in the appropriate storage technology to ensure peak safety and security. If you are in a business that requires the storage of potentially hazardous chemicals, than a technology you could very well benefit from are double wall tanks.
Minimizing the hazard of working with aggressive chemicals involves a variety of factors. Firstly, proper precautions must absolutely always be taken during storage. However, in addition to taking precautions when working with aggressive chemicals, it is also important to invest in the right equipment. One of the most important pieces of equipment when it comes to storing aggressive chemicals are double wall storage tanks. These tanks come equipped with an extra layer commonly referred to as “secondary containment” that offers an extra level of protection against potentially hazardous chemical leaks. The double wall technology means that if a leak occurs in the first layer, the second layer can provide protection to stop it from reaching the environment outside of the tank and causing damage and danger.
Which industries could best benefit from the use of double wall fiberglass tanks? Well, in short, any industry that requires the use of aggressive chemicals. Aggressive chemicals include , among other things, any substances that could potentially cause hazard to human health, danger to the environment, or is corrosive or prone to causing dangerous chemical reactions when in contact with substances like water. These more aggressive chemicals, such as sulfuric acid, require more heavy duty and secure storage to maximize safety and minimize potential danger arising from leaks or contamination. Really, if you need to store a chemical that would be dangerous if leaked, or if contaminated, double wall tanks may be just the thing for you.
