Industrial Water Reservoirs – A Big Solution to a Big Problem

Share This Post

Storage tanks for above ground water are the best solution to cater to the growing needs of water by various industries such as mining, harbors, hospitals, manufacturing, and many more. Industrial water reservoirs are an excellent option for above ground water storage systems. Industrial water reservoirs are not only a solution to the needs of industries but also to the contaminated water left as a byproduct of the manufacturing process. Water is stored in these reservoirs to be properly and efficiently disposed of. No natural water bodies are harmed by this process.

Application and Advantages

Industrial water reservoirs are a storage solution for any liquid or water. They are designed by expert engineers with the highest mechanical knowledge put in. These reservoirs are not only reliable but also economical. They are constructed of steel structures which cover a large area using supported designs. Because of the high quality of the materials used to construct them, the structures are corrosion resistant and can withstand the adversities of environment .They are maintenance free and require no repainting over years, carrying low maintenance costs during their life. They also have low installation costs and can be constructed quickly, saving on both time and money of the industry. They are also an eco-friendly and green choice.

Industrial Water Reservoirs


Industrial water reservoirs are tested and certified. Certain safety and mechanical standards are adhered to, after which a certificate of no objection is given. The quality assurance is a must which increases the credibility of the supplier and the longevity of the products life. These reservoirs can also be used for treating water contaminated during oil and sand extraction, for storing trona generally used to remove dissolved mercury from water, and for removing sulphur from gases in fossil fuels.

The construction of water reservoirs also involve high quality parts with installation undertaken by trained technical engineers, lesser time in erection and delivery, and cost saving during transportation and field labor. The installation of industrial water reservoirs include components like pumps and metering devices, level indicators, heater, light fixtures, electrical conduit, full slake and slurry systems, knife gates, volumetric feeders, piping and valves , aeration systems, exhaust fans, control panels, skirt insulation, vibratory units, bin vent filters, switches and controls, and many others.

Designs and types

The industrial water reservoirs are available with different engineering designs and types to suit the demands of different clients and people. They are manufactured while adhering to strict quality standards. Safety laws are also adhered to during their construction. The water reservoirs can be made available in various deigns.

The most common design for a water reservoir is horizontal orientation. This type includes tanks which incorporate horizontal oriented panels with four cornered attached designs and a mastic sealer. These tanks are built keeping in mind easy expandability. Jacks are used to construct them top down.

Vertical paneled tanks use a more simple construction. They are constructed using vertical panels and gaskets. Additional stiffness is added using chime joints and they do not require any special jacks to construct.

Welded reservoirs are the least expensive and easiest type of reservoir to construct. They are one piece welded reservoirs, the construction of which minimizes cost and construction time.
