Custom Steel Tank Fabrication for the Chemical Handling Industry

Steel Structures was contracted to fabricate a custom steel tank for a customer in the chemical handling industry. Shown here, this is a prime example of the superior workmanship we regularly present. This tank would be used to store and transport calcium ammonium nitrate. Fabricated from A36 carbon steel, we expertly employed various metal fabrication techniques to complete the project.

The steel was rolled to the required diameter for the vessel’s design, and welded according to ASME Section IX standards. Radiographic examinations were performed to ensure the weld integrity. The vessel was then subjected to NDE evaluation, and a 2 psi soap test was employed to test for pinholes, cracks, or missed welds. The tank’s interior surface was prepped with SSPC-SP10 near white metal sandblast and coated with macropoxy 646. The exterior surface was then prepped with a commercial sandblast and given a topcoat of fastClad DTM urethane.

The finished tank was 26’ high, with an outer diameter of 14’, and a volume capacity of 30,000 gallons. This tank features a self-supporting conical lid and a flat bottom. The project was completed in 6 weeks, and delivered to the customer in Fort Wayne, Indiana. All of our products are created with the highest quality, adhering to the stringent standards set for our industry.
