Pressed Steel Tanks

FTS pressed steel tanks are made with panels and are also known as panel tanks or sectional tanks are suitable for the storage of medium to high volumes of water and other liquids. All Pressed Steel Tanks are hot dipped galvanized panels and can be tailor made to serve as various industrial and residential reservoir applications. FTS can supply and install these panel tanks in any size ranging from 1000 to 5 Million liters. All pressed steel tanks structures are signed off by a registered engineer. Panel tanks can be ground based and serviced by a pressure vessel and pump or elevated up-to 35 meters to create water pressure by altitude.

FTS Tanks sectional steel plate tanks offer heavy duty long term water storage solutions.  Sectional tanks can be assembled at ground level or they can be elevated on structural steel towers. Pressed steel tanks that are raised above the ground have the “tank stand” as an integral part of the design. Hence there is no separate platform on which the tank is mounted.  FTS sectional tanks can be tailor made to suite various industrial, municipal, fire fighting and other high volume water applications. No inner containment membrane is used in conjunction with the pressed steel panel. The panels are bolted together and are brased from the inside. All pressed steel panels are hot dipped galvanised – hence corrosion resistant, making this product particularly durable and suitable for storage of potable water. 

Features of Sectional tanks are:

Modular design.
Hot Dipped Galvanised
Can be raised or on ground level.
The steel shell has a life expectancy of 20 – 30 years.
UV resistant.
Easily transportable.
SABS and ASIB accredited fire tanks
Tank refurbishments and tank maintenance solutions are also available from FTS. Please contact us if you have any tank maintenance or refurbishment requirements.
