Confirm chemical compatibility
of product being stored with that of the polyethylene tank and fittings.
Tanks are to be used at
atmospheric pressure only. Make sure tanks are vented as required to prevent
pressure or vacuum from developing.
Prevent excessive heat near or
inside the tank. Polyethylene tanks are designed for a maximum continuous
temperature of 70° F.*
Have and use
Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for the product being stored.
Regard tanks as confined
spaces.Follow proper entry procedures.
Do not stand on tank domes as
the surface is flexible and slippery.
Do not move tanks while holding
liquid and never allow personnel under a tank when it is being lifted!
Locate the tank wisely.
Protect personnel from chemical danger in the event of a leak and protect the
tank from traffic damage and excessive heat. Tanks are designed for above

Fill the usable capacity of the
tank with water and hydro test up to a minimum of 5 hours after installation
and before product is introduced to ensure tank and fitting integrity.
Install labels for chemical
warning that complies with all local, federal and OSHA requirements.
Temperature - Tank specific
gravity ratings based on product temperature of 70° F.
Pressure - Atmospheric pressure
must be maintained in tank at all times; vacuum must = 0.
Make sure tank is properly
vented for the type of material and flow rates expected.
Plumbing - Flexible connections
REQUIRED to preserve warranty.
Tanks should be inspected on a
