Silos and Tanks
Bolted Smoothwall Tanks - Available in precision FP (flat panel) construction, the industrial "smoothwall" bolted tank remains the economical product of choice for dry bulk materials, when storage requirements exceed shop-welded tank requirements (i.e., greater than 8,000-10,000 cubic feet of storage). Hopper gravity discharge is available in a variety of designs including skirted tanks, drive-through skirted tanks, tanks on structures, tanks on load cells and tanks elevated on structural legs. Hopper capacities range from 900 cubic feet up to 80,000 cubic feet. Flat bottom capacities range up to 2 million cubic feet of storage.

Hybrid Storage Tanks & Silos – Combines the best qualities of bolted FP, field-weld and concrete construction together in one product. The hybrid silo has become a preferred storage tank design when storage volume requirements exceed bolted FP designs. Hybrid construction can utilize a bolted FP sidewall with a field-weld deck or hopper. Other hybrid designs utilize concrete floors elevated on structural steel and field-weld designs with bolted tank components. The hybrid silo is uniquely tailored for the application. Many large volume applications designed for functional mass flow discharge utilize a hybrid tank design.
Applications: Cement, fly ash, coal, limestone, lime, aggregates, minerals, chemicals & misc. dry other
Hopper capacities from 20,000 – 150,000 cubic feet
Modular construction requires field assembly
Decreased field installation timeframe
Factory applied powder coating systems
Field Welded Tanks - Available in API 620 & API 650 designs, the field-welded tank remains the product of choice in select dry bulk storage applications. Typical applications include: storage requirements that require heavier tank designs than bolted smoothwall tanks offer, storage capacities in excess of 70,000 cubic feet when hopper bottom discharge is required, power market, heavy and abrasive bulk material applications. Quality field-weld fabrication is evidenced by following code requirements including radiograph examination, etc.
Drive-Through Skirt Tanks – The most economical choice for truck load-out applications. Capacities range up to 150,000 cubic feet. Bolted FP Tank construction is the new industry standard for industrial process applications.
