Superior Tank Co., Inc. (STCI) is proud to have provided the new bolted steel tank for the Cauayan City Water District in Isabela Philippines. The bolted tank is the first of its kind in Northern Luzon and highlights the benefits of a bolted steel tank. The epoxy coated tank provides storage of 79,000 gallons of potable water for Cauayan City and is dedicated to the late Governor Faustino N. Dy and his son Governor Benjamin G. Dy. Their vision and initiatives have resulted in the development and modernization of the Cauayan City Water District and also contributed to the City being branded as “Ideal City of The North”.
The bolted steel tank used for the project was designed and manufactured to provide the city decades of service. Constructed of high strength carbon steel, the bolted tank is constructed for maximum durability and longevity. To meet local building codes and to withstand typhoons, the bolted tank is designed to meet a 200 mph wind load requirement. To accommodate the city’s future needs and save the city time and money, the bolted tank was designed to be easily expandable by simply adding rings to the tank. To survive the warm and humid conditions of the Philippines, the epoxy bolted tank features a corrosive resistant powder coating with an additional Silica-Zirconium(Si-Zr) underseal. To resist the harsh sun and UV rays, the exterior of the bolted tank was protected with specially formulated TGIC powder coating. Our Sky White color was selected to reduce the solar heat gain which helps to keep the water cooler and preserve water quality. In addition, bolted tanks manufactured by STCI are different than bolted tanks from other companies as it includes a steel floor. The steel floor ties the shell together and prevents leaks and water loss which can occur with concrete bottom tanks.
The bolted steel tank in Cauayan City is truly an investment in the community and a testament to the vision of Governor Faustino N. Dy and Governor Benjamin G. Dy.
