Industrial tanks are suitable for the safe storage of pasty and liquid raw materials, alkalis, lacquers or aggressive acids. They are made of polyethylene with galvanized steel bands and are durable and environmentally friendly. Transparent tanks provide visibility of the fill level. Alternatively, opaque black tanks are also available. Whether industrial, chemical or double-walled tank: Discover the right one for your work area here.

Fire-rated cabinets for ATEX zones - What do I need to know
Within DSEAR, an explosive atmosphere is defined as a mixture of dangerous substances with air, under atmospheric conditions, in the form of gases, vapours, mist or dust in which, after ignition has occurred, combustion spreads to the entire unburned mixture. You need to carry out a risk assessment to determine if your storage cabinet needs to be zoned as a hazardous area. Where there are flammable vapours present any electrical equipment that is installed needs to be ATEX rated.

Plastic tanks are safe to use, high in utility value and also suitable for storing chemicals and food. Thanks to their high-density polyethylene (HDPE) construction with galvanised steel strapping, they are durable and sustainable. They are resistant to many different chemicals, such as:
This makes them reliable storage containers in which you can store the liquids you need - regardless of whether you are in industry, agriculture or a chemical company.
For which liquids are plastic tanks suitable?
Plastic tanks have proven themselves as stable and liquid-tight chemical tanks and industrial containers in the chemical industry, environmental technology and water treatment plants, waste water purification plants and refrigeration plant construction. They can be used for
pasty raw materials,
liquid raw materials,
and agrgesive acids.
Polyethylene tanks are also very popular in the food industry and for cosmetics. Plastic tanks are available in natural transparent with optical level control or light-protected in black to prevent algae growth and in different sizes. You decide which volume suits your needs: At DENIOS we have plastic tank containers with a capacity of 1,100 to 5,000 litres.
Attention: Liquids such as chlorinated hydrocarbons and oxidising acids cannot be stored in plastic tanks.
What are the advantages of chemical tanks made of high-density polyethylene?
Easy to clean
High tear resistance
High-density polyethylene can be used in many ways and is therefore one of the most popular and most widely used plastics. It has only a low inherent strength, however it is all the more stable for it, even in a very thin version. Thanks to its smooth inner walls, it is very easy to clean. In addition, it is naturally corrosion-free. High-density polyethylene is transparent in its natural state and thus makes it easy to estimate the filling quantity for industrial and safety tanks.
Another plus point is the physiological safeness. The durable plastic tanks do not release any substances that affect the human body or its metabolism. This characteristic also makes it popular in the food and cosmetics industries.
Despite high tear resistance, industrial containers must be stored on spill pallets. This protects production and the environment in the event of a leak.
In addition, plastic tanks should be protected from UV radiation, as the plastic can become brittle with long-term exposure to sunlight. Galvanised steel bandages provide additional stability. You can also find the matching spill pallets and accessories such as taps and nozzles in our range.
