Used industrial tanks support various applications, such as storing materials, housing reactions and preparing substances for transport. Tanks are valuable across industries, such as pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, chemical processing and plastic production.
Used Storage Tank Options
At LCEC, our selection of used tanks offers a range of sizes and alloys to suit your applications. Some of our tank types include:
- Sanitary: Used sanitary tanks feature polished interior metal to suit applications that require cleanliness. The polishing removes the surface of abrasives and prevents corrosion that can be unsafe for food items and pharmaceutical production.
- Double wall: This tank type is most commonly used in chemical processing applications because it provides the most protection against chemical spills. With an inner and outer layer, stored materials are safe from the elements and unable to escape the tank during transport.
- Jacketed: Jacketed tank systems have a solid shell that protects the thermal properties of the substances inside. Jacketed tanks can keep materials cold or warm.
In addition to these tank types, you can search for specific alloys, such as used stainless steel jacketed tanks and Hastelloy designs.
Used Glass-Lined Tanks
Glass-lined storage tanks are ideal for raw materials used in chemical reactions or food or pharmaceutical-grade products, which can’t be contaminated and need to remain pure. Glass is corrosion-resistant, making it an appropriate choice for acidic substances and other highly corrosive materials.
Our selection of glass-lined tanks is also appropriate for storing products sensitive to metals. Since glass is easy to clean, it’s a good choice for sticky or viscous materials that can adhere to metal.
Used Stainless Steel Tanks
Our selection of used tanks also includes stainless steel storage tanks. Stainless steel is a rust-resistant metal ideal for storing food-grade materials. Jacketed stainless steel tanks work well in applications that require even heat, such as melting chocolate or wax.
