Actionable Care and Maintenance Tips for Liquid Storage Tanks

Liquid chemicals and other substances in liquid form are needed in many different areas and applications. Plastic tanks have helped many individuals and companies to keep their liquid storage costs at a minimum.  Refined Polymers Sdn Bhd is synonymous with the POLYTANK® tanks that have been widely adopted for a wide array of liquid storage applications.

Considering that liquid storage tanks are primarily used outdoors, the product range from RPSB are added with UV stabilizers. The tanks can thus withstand direct sunlight for many years. Low quality liquid storage tanks are likely to quickly fade and crack, especially when exposed to constant sunlight.

The high-quality tanks within the POLYTANK® range are designed to be reusable and last for many years. That being said, how long they last majorly depends on how you take care of them!  Ultimately, proper maintenance makes a huge difference down the road. The following valuable guidelines are provided to ensure your liquid storage tank is maintained in the best possible condition.

Proper handling

As a general rule, ensure that the liquid storage tanks are carefully loaded, transported and offloaded after you buy them, and whenever you need to move them around. When handling the tank, for example during installation, we recommend always supporting the tank from the bottom. Ensure the tank lid is tightly secured to prevent foreign matter and organisms from accessing the liquid storage tank.

Liquid storage plastic tanks are built to last. POLYTANK® tanks, in particular, have been proven and tested to last at least 20 years in extreme environments with big shifts in temperature, large gusts of wind, and lots of potential wear and tear from other surrounding elements.

Cleaning tanks

It’s important to regularly clean liquid storage tanks after use. This is especially important if you intend to store different kinds of liquids. Liquid storage tanks made of polyethylene material are typically easy to clean off surface dirt. If you’re not certain about whether to use a particular cleaner, it’s imperative to check with the manufacturer.

With our range of POLYTANK®, you only need a damp cloth, mild detergent and some water and the liquid storage tank will be sparkling clean with minimal effort. In case of any accidental spill from other materials or chemicals, wipe it off promptly, rinse it several times with soapy water, and finally dry the surface with a clean piece of cloth.

Refined Polymers Sdn Bhd manufactures completely opaque liquid storage tanks. This eliminates possible algae since the tanks blocks light, thus preventing algae growth as a result of photosynthesis.

Proper installation

Plastic tanks are ideal for installation both outdoors and indoors. That being said, you should only install or mount a liquid storage tank on a flat and level surface that can handle the pressure.

You want to avoid costly mistakes such as the tank falling over and rupture.  Also, you should keep objects with the potential to fall away from the liquid storage tank.

Away from open flames

Liquid storage tanks with flammable liquids should be kept as far as possible from open flames. This is because the polyethylene material may deform if exposed to extremely high temperatures. POLYTANK® can withstand heat up to 135°C.

Before purchasing a liquid storage tank from a given manufacturer or supplier, make sure that they satisfy your specifications and that they have an industry reputation for customer service and product quality.
