Horizontal and Vertical Storage Tanks for Liquid AC

AC Tanks are essential for the safe storage of asphalt cement, the durable liquid component of asphalt used for paving. It’s made of bitumen, a mixture of hydrocarbons produced during crude oil distillation. Solid at room temperature, the asphalt cement must be heated and kept at the right temperature during storage on its way to the mixing drum.

At CWMF, we offer stationary and portable AC Tanks, including options for horizontal and vertical storage tanks. An OSHA-approved, caged safety ladder and hand railing are supplied with all of our tanks.

Top Quality AC Tank Farm Construction & Design

Whether we are adding a tank to an existing group or providing a new tank farm, we will work with you to meet your needs. Regardless of the customizations you require, we build our tanks to last with high-quality materials of construction, flexible configuration, and expert design.

AC Tank Features

We construct our tanks from 1/4″ material that is bevel prepped to ensure 100% weld penetration. We also incorporate a square top and bottom base. The bases are made of 6″ channel and are insulated with 6″ rigid fiberglass insulation. The top platform provides ample access space and provides for a simple connection to adjacent tanks.

The insulated base platform significantly reduces heat loss in the asphalt cement as you eliminate the heat sink into the ground. The square base platform also provides for convenient mounting of controls. Our sidewalls are insulated with 4″ rigid fiberglass insulation as a standard. Our tanks are sheathed with an aluminum cover. This can be supplied in several color options or aluminum finish.
