In this video, we’ll take a look at the components that make up an electrical heating system used on a polyethylene chemical storage tank.
A polyethylene tank heating system, along with proper insulation, ensures that the chemicals stored in the tank are kept at the proper temperature. The poly tank heating system consists of a SilcoPad® heating pad on the outside of the tank that is wired to a control panel and also a thermostat. The tank heating system can be connected to a SCADA system or any type of alarm device.
Poly tanks are available with standard heating systems with a Delta T of 30, 60 and 100 degrees F. The quantity and type of SilcoPad® tank heating pads required is determined by the size of the tank, the desired temperature maintenance and environmental conditions.
