What’s the Best Heat Maintenance System for SAFE-Tank® Double Wall Tanks?

Maintaining the proper temperature of a chemical inside a SAFE-Tank® double wall tank is often critical to safe storage. For example, sodium hydroxide at a 50 percent concentration will start to crystallize at or below temperatures of 60 degrees. For polyethylene chemical storage tanks, heating pads and insulation can maintain the specific temperature of the chemical you’re storing—even when your chemical tank is exposed to low air temperatures.

How Much Pressure Is Too Much for a Polyethylene Storage Tank?

When you design a chemical storage tank system, you have to consider the factors that impact the tank’s service life. Not only do you have to make sure that the tank material and fitting materials are compatible with the chemical you’re storing, it’s also important to consider the functionality of the tank — for example, how it responds to pressure.


You need to know exactly how much pressure your chemical storage tank can safely handle. This is an issue for every chemical tank, no matter what material it’s made of. Fortunately, cross-linked polyethylene storage tanks have remarkable durability compared to many other materials. That said, you need to know your tank’s pressure limits.

In any scenario, coming into contact with oxygen means you’ve lost product — which translates to less revenue and costs of replacement.

Tank blanketing helps prevent contact with oxygen, and Poly Processing is your partner for protecting your stored materials.
