Bolted Tanks

NO ONE BUILDS BOLTED BETTER

Superior Tank is a leading bolted steel storage tank manufacturer with a focus on innovation, customer service and quality. Our bolted steel tanks feature unparalleled assembly time, minimal site impact, a long renovation cycle and straightforward repairs.

Our bolted tanks arrive to the job site as complete kits including hardware, structure and accessories and therefore can be built in only 1/3 of the time of other tank designs. The coating is applied at the factory eliminating the need to coat the storage tank in the field and ensuring a high-quality finish to protect the steel completely from corrosion. With a lifespan of up to 40 years with proper maintenance, our bolted steel tanks offer a lower overall life cycle cost. Our bolted tanks are comprised of replaceable panels and thus maintenance, relocation, expansion and exporting have never been easier.

You can be assured that our precision manufactured bolted tanks will provide you the long-lasting storage you need for your project.

APPLICATIONS

Our bolted steel tanks can be used for a variety of applications including potable water storage, water storage for fire protection, wastewater storage and crude oil storage and meet a number of industry standards including American Water Works Association (AWWA) D103, National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA), FM Approvals and American Petroleum Institute (API) 12B. Superior Tank is one of the few manufacturers certified to provide bolted tanks for oil storage with the notable API 12B Monogram.

CHIMED VS FLAT PANEL TANKS

We are one of the only manufacturers to offer both chimed and flat-panel design bolted tanks.

Chimed: Our chimed bolted steel tanks are designed to meet both the API 12B specification and AWWA D103-09 standard and have earned NSF 61/372 Certification. Chimed bolted tanks can be used for a wide variety of applications including oil storage, drinking water storage, industrial water storage, storage of water for fire protection, wastewater storage and dry material storage. Chimed steel tanks feature a perpendicular “chime” at the top and bottom edges of the tank staves helping the tank to achieve the needed wind load rating by increasing stiffness. Chimed tanks are the only design allowed under the API 12B standard and API 12B Monogram certification.

Flat Panel: Our flat panel bolted steel tanks work well for potable water storage, wastewater storage, storage of water for fire protection, industrial water storage as well as dry bulk storage. Our flat panel tanks comply with the AWWA D103-09 standard and have also have earned NSF 61/372 Certification. Unlike other flat panel designs on the market, our steel staves maintain their thickness throughout the entire panel and are not thinner at the edges.
