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.
