Safety and efficiency are some of the most important factors for industrial business owners. For businesses that store water or chemicals in industrial tanks, the importance of safety increases significantly. Luckily, there are many benefits of tank liners that make it easy for business owners to ensure the continued safety of their employees and the efficiency of their businesses.
Extends the lifespan of tanks
A tank liner will not only ensure your tank functions properly for the entirety of its expected lifespan, but also help the tank exceed its anticipated lifespan and perform for many more years than expected. A tank liner will also refresh an older tank and restore it to its former glory, enabling it to function with the same efficiency and safety as a newer tank.
Repairs and prevents leaks
Whether your tank stores water or chemicals, properly containing the liquids is of the utmost importance. A small crack or leak in your tank may seem inconsequential at first, but if it’s left unattended, it can lead to serious and potentially costly setbacks: leaky tanks can lead to slip and fall injuries, and they may even cause a flood in your workplace. Tank liners mitigate these risks early on by ensuring proper containment of all liquids at all times.
Some tanks may deteriorate more quickly than others, perhaps as a result of the liquids they store or the materials with which the tanks were built. Tank liners create a barrier between the liquid and the tank, effectively reducing the potential for corrosion. Premium tank liners are particularly useful in preventing corrosion in tanks that hold chromic or nitric acids or other caustic chemicals. A water tank liner can also help protect against corrosion caused by wind, rain, humidity, or fluctuations in temperature. Extreme heat or cold can cause a tank to expand and crack, potentially causing leaks or more extensive damage. Tanks with high-quality liners are less susceptible to damage caused by extreme weather, and they’ll be better able to withstand corrosive materials than other tanks.
The installation process for tank liners is relatively quick and simple, especially when compared to the time it takes to repair and rebuild a tank after extensive damage. PVC tank liners, for instance, can typically be installed in just one day, significantly reducing the amount of downtime for your company. Drop-in liners are also quite versatile, and they can be designed to fit tanks of almost any shape and size. Regardless of your tank’s dimensions, you can ensure the tank is properly sealed and protected in a time-effective manner.
Replacing an industrial tank after it sustains damage can be a costly affair. Even repairing small cracks can become quite an investment over time. Because price is a primary concern for many business owners, cost-efficiency is one of the most important benefits of tank liners. Installing a tank liner will help reduce the likelihood of cracks and damage, therefore reducing the cost of repairing these cracks.
