Poly Processing Company's 5-7 Week Tank Shipping Process

Poly Processing Company manufactures high-density crosslinked polyethylene storage tanks for a wide variety of applications; but manufacturing is just one step in the overall process. A chemical storage tank is an investment, and it’s important to protect any investment. That’s why we take special care and precaution with your chemical storage tank, especially after it is rotationally molded and is ready to be shipped to your plant.

How Do You Know If Your Chemical Storage Tank Is Compatible?

When you’re storing hazardous fluids such as corrosive acids, bases, or aggressively oxidizing chemicals, you need to be confident that your chemical storage tank can meet your expectations for years. You can’t afford to invest in a tank system, only to discover a year later that your tank isn’t compatible with the chemicals you’re using. That’s a loss of product, time, and money—and it could put your people, equipment, and environment at risk, as well.

Poly Processing Innovation Series: The IMFO® Is a Better Full Discharge System

This is the fourth article in Poly Processing’s Innovation Series, where you’ll discover the many innovations that we have introduced to the chemical storage industry.

One of the biggest challenges in vertical tank design is maintaining the tank’s integrity while still allowing for the tank to be fully discharged, cleaned, and properly maintained.

Traditional tank maintenance can be a challenge with many chemicals — so Poly Processing Company has developed a unique full discharge system that helps minimize the hazards associated with traditional vertical tank maintenance.

The Right Chemical Tank for Sodium Hypochlorite

Sodium hypochlorite, or bleach, is one of the most commonly used chemicals across all industries. But that doesn’t mean you should use a common chemical storage system to contain this aggressive oxidizer. Whether you’re using a bleach concentration of 0.8%, 6%, or 12.5%, sodium hypochlorite will attack your storage tanks more aggressively than most other solutions. Without the proper storage tank system, you could be looking at a tank failure in less time than you expect.

Use a Desiccant Dryer System to Keep Moisture Out of Your Tank

Bulk stored chemicals can become contaminated from two major sources: debris and moisture. As the product is emptied from the chemical storage tank, dirty air and moisture can be drawn into the tank. Temperature fluctuations can also cause the tank to expand and contract, so that it “breathes” contaminants in and out.

Maintaining chemical purity is essential in many industrial chemical applications, such as computer chip manufacturing, food processing, clean in place, and pharmaceutical manufacturing. Contaminated chemicals can become less effective, and more hazardous to your storage equipment. 

To prevent contamination, Poly Processing often recommends installing special accessories. Tank vent dryers and desiccant filters may be your best choice for keeping moisture out of the chemical storage tank.

Poly Processing Innovation Series: Enhanced Bellows Transition Fitting for Double Wall Tanks

This is the third article in Poly Processing’s Innovation Series, where you’ll discover the many innovations that we have introduced to the chemical storage industry.

You’ve heard the adage, “if a job is worth doing, it’s worth doing right.” Poly Processing believes this to be true 110% of the time when it comes to containment. Every single piece of a tank system needs to be completely secure to protect your workspace, your employees, the environment, and the chemical being stored. Thus, when you install a tank-within-tank or double wall system like the SAFE-Tank with a sidewall fitting, it may be important to also install a bellows transition fitting.

Effective Storage of Sulfuric Acid in Crosslinked Polyethylene Tanks

Sulfuric acid is one of the most widely used chemicals in the United States. More sulfuric acid is produced every year than any other chemical. It has a multitude of industry-specific uses, such as the production of other chemicals, dyes and pigments, water treatment and fertilizers.


This heavy, corrosive chemical requires a specifically designed storage system. That’s why Poly Processing follows guidelines that help ensure safety and enhanced useful tank life.

Poly Processing Innovation Series: The Tangible Difference Between HDPE and Cross-Linked Polyethylene Storage Tanks

This is the second article in Poly Processing’s Innovation Series, where you’ll discover the many innovations that we have introduced to the chemical storage industry.

Not all high-density polyethylene tanks are created equal. Although they sound nearly identical, linear polyethylene and cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) chemical storage tanks have significant differences. Those differences could impact your organization’s bottom line, your people’s safety, and the operations of your facility.
