The Benefits of Rubber Lined Tanks
One of the most common components in industrial systems is large-scale tanks. However, not every tank is up to every job, and it is vital that no tank is used for a job it is not equipped to handle. Not only is this a safety concern, but there are efficiency and monetary benefits to avoiding overloading a tank. A common problem is using a tank that does not have a rubber lining. Rubber lined tanks can prevent accidents and save you money at the same time. The benefits include:
- Corrosion Resistance
- Abrasion Resistance
- Less Maintenance
- More Sanitary
It is no secret that corrosion can cause big problems. If the material you need to store is corrosive, and your tank is not prepared to hold it, then it is a recipe for disaster. Certain kinds of rubber resist acidic materials, allowing the tank to complete jobs that would otherwise be impossible. The same principle applies to abrasive material. It’s easy to recognize when a tank cannot handle an acidic material, but something as simple as sand can wear the tank excessively. This may not necessarily lead to a leak, but it may excessively wear the tank or cause certain components to break. No matter the case, it is easy to make your tank more resistant.
Rubber lining can also save you money in the long run, even if your tank is not susceptible to being damaged by the material it is meant to contain. Rubber lining extends how long a tank can go before it needs to be repainted, refinished, or cleaned. Not only that, but it very well may keep the tank from breaking altogether. It goes without saying how expensive it can be to repair or replace a huge industrial tank. It is easy and fast to have existing tanks lined with rubber to immediately start taking advantage of these benefits.
