Storage tanks are either horizontal or vertical and cylindrical or rectangular. Large storage tanks tend to vertical and cylindrical, the ends can be flat, sloping, conical or dished at the bottom and open, dished, flat or conical at the top. Additional features can include fitting a jacket or internal coil for heating or cooling of the liquid and supplying a rectangular bund to safely contain leakages. The material of construction of a storage tank depends on the type of liquid to be stored within the tank.
Storage tanks tend to be constructed by engineering companies and specialist fabricators such as Ardeth Engineering, Conway Vickers, Cookson & Zinn, Bibby's, Sinclair Stainless, T Giusti, DeDietrich, Forbes, Pfaudler and many more.
