Thoroughly understanding the nuances of the chemical’s properties is vital to maximize the operation and performance of the chemical delivery system, as well as the longevity of the chemical storage tank. If you simply design a tank based on generic factors such as size, material and capacity without defining the chemical used, you risk getting a non-optimal tank.
Built in 1915 to resemble a coastal lighthouse, the historic Humboldt Water Tower is being given new life as an art venue. One of only...
The Provincial Court of British Columbia has issued fines in relation to guilty pleas for two separate incidents where companies illegally discharged ammonia and...

Ensuring the integrity of a lined above ground storage tank can be very challenging. A recent project demonstrated that a new Canadian innovation in leak detection technology made the job a lot easier.
The highly corrosive nature of sulfuric acid tests the limits of today’s storage systems. Any company that stores sulfuric acid needs to be acutely aware of the dangers that the chemical presents to equipment and personnel. When storing sulfuric acid, it is important to verify the hoop stress rating and understand the specific gravity ratings to make sure the resins used in the storage tank provide a margin of safety. Along with the weight of the chemical, its oxidative properties must also be considered.
The technology used to measure and manage chemical inventories is diverse, with many options to measuring the amount of chemicals inside tanks.
It is important to consider the durability and longevity of the chemical storage tank system when you’re storing corrosive chemicals.
Residents on the east side of Saint John, New Brunswick, were all too familiar with boil water orders. For decades, the city drew water from Latimer Lake and chlorinated and pumped it directly to the distribution system.
The two key factors for water storage are to ensure the tank maintains the correct level and that there is water turnover to protect water quality. In colder climates, low tank turnover can lead to water freezing within it.
Water treatment plant upgrade is one of few modern Nunavut plants built by shipping construction materials to the remote Arctic location.
The presence or potential presence of USTs and ASTs are common sources of soil contamination in Ontario.
The winery chose a treatment system that uses fiberglass tanks due to their corrosion resistance.
When choosing a chemical storage tank manufacturer it is important to make sure they can offer you a complete chemical storage tank system that is NSF/ANSI/CAN 61 certified.
This is an overview of the long-term rehabilitation follow-up work to extend the service life of the water treatment plant reservoir in Peterborough.
In early 2000, a public plea was issued on the front page of the Lethbridge Herald for ideas to possibly salvage the landmark. Douglas...
Automatic Control Valves are designed to modulate and control water at all varying flows, and butterfly valves were originally designed to be open or closed.
High-density polyethylene chemical storage tanks can be made of linear polyethylene or cross-linked polyethylene. They are both made with resins that are heated to...
During construction of a new contact tank and clearwell, the existing water reservoir developed a leak, flooding the site and decommissioning the reservoir.
Rehabilitating steel water storage tanks can cost up to one-third of the initial construction cost. It's vital that you make the most out of these repairs.
While the base slab of a new reservoir was under construction, the existing 1920s water reservoir had a leak that partially flooded the construction site.
Built to improve the municipality's water security in the event of a water main break, the tower is capable of sustaining Ilderton for up to six days.
Despite efforts to protect public water supplies through testing, treatment and regulation, contamination in water storage tanks still occasionally occurs.
By Derek Bolianatz, Parabeam Distribution NA, Mike O'Donoghue, Ph.D., and Ron Garrett, ICI Devoe Coatings With today's emphasis on leak detection and spill prevention, there...
