Potassium Hydroxide Requires a Specialized Storage Solution

If you’re storing potassium hydroxide, you have a chemical that can’t be taken lightly. Storing and handling potassium hydroxide requires a chemical tank system that will live up to the rigors of a hazardous substance without the possibility of a catastrophic failure in the case of a leak.

Confined Space Safety Issues? Consider a Side Manway

While many of the chemicals stored in polyethylene tanks don’t require side manways, these accessories are available as an add-on option to Poly Processing chemical storage tanks. A side manway often provides several safety and efficiency benefits that may be worth considering for your facility.
