Identifying Gaskets and Bolts for Chemical Storage Applications

With over 40 years experience in creating tanks, fittings, accessories and other materials that ensure your chemical storage solution is safe and tailored to the chemical you are storing, we understand the importance of using the right products for your chemical. We’ve learned how our most popularly stored chemicals, like Sulfuric Acid, Sodium Hypochlorite and Hydrochloric Acid, react to improper storage systems. One part of those tank systems that is crucial is a tank’s gaskets. The tank’s gaskets act as a seal with a particular fitting to prevent and leaks or spills. It is very important to make sure the gaskets and bolts used on your storage tanks are in compliance with what is needed to protect your tank fittings from corrosion caused by reactive chemicals.

Our Chemical Tank Storage Gaskets

The following video offers a quick introduction on how to identify the gaskets available. Black gaskets are EPDM, our most popular by far, but we offer litharge-cured Viton gaskets for other chemical storage applications. Our stud bolts are recognizable by the bolt head color, and the nuts for each bolt also indicate the metal used to construct the bolts. Watching the video will familiarize you with the different gaskets and bolts available for your chemical tank storage, and more information is available on our individual chemical storage pages.
