Tarsco Bolted Tank’s decades of experience combined with our state-of-the-art engineering and manufacturing facility can provide you with any volume of storage you may require. Flat Panel bolted tanks offer outstanding performance, reliability and ease of installation.
Our flat seam, field-assembled design is the most advanced technology in the bolted tank industry. Using the latest sealant to replace all strip gaskets we dramatically reduce the possibility of bolted panel seam leaks.
Tarsco Bolted Tank’s flat panel design provides a smooth interior wall surface superior to older flanged panel designs. Tanks are erected from ground level with a jacking system, improving safety at the construction site. This system eliminates expensive cranes and improves our ability to work in confined spaces.
Our panels are finished in our factory with a thermal fusion bonded powder coating.
The Flat Panel Bolted Advantage
- Speed and ease of manufacturing and erection
- Worry-free quality in design coatings
- Least expensive solution over a lifetime
- Inline design increases sealing capabilities
- Green friendly eliminating environmental concerns
- Lower erection cost due to economical shipping and elimination of field welding
- Bolted tanks can be relocated and expanded, improving residual value
The Coatings Process starts with an overhead monorail rotary-blast machine, capable of achieving SSPC SP-10, utilizes eight separate rotary blasting wheels to make sure that the metal surface is free of all visible oil, grease, dust, dirt mill scale, rust coatings and other foreign debris, which could interfere with the coatings process and impact durability and tank life.
A four-stage power wash machine executes a clean wash, rinse, a secondary rinse, which removes all hardness from the water.
In the next step, tank components are run through a highly efficient gas convection dry-off oven to ensure the tank components are completely dry, preventing flash rusting prior to painting.
A primer is then applied by the powder coating system. This patented technology ensures even paint coverage.
The new paint-booth technology eliminates cross contamination and is yet another effort to make Tarsco Bolted Tank the most environmentally friendly tank manufacturer in the world.
Following the powder coating process the components are exposed to an electrical infrared gel oven, which allows a gelling time significantly less that the traditional convection systems. The energy-efficient system cures coatings from the inside out, is more time efficient and provides less of an environmental footprint. The final process of the new coatings system is the top-coat process.
In the top coat booth, the patented powder coating system allows the minimization of “faraday,” which is hard to reach spots. This system ensures equal coverage of all tank components. The booth features safeguards that make cross-color contamination virtually impossible.
A gas cure convection oven allows for a quick ramp-up of curing temperatures, which allows the system to cure very heavy and thick metals uniformly and consistently.
