INNATANK™ - A Revolution For The Safe Storage of Hazardous Liquids

The safe storage of hazardous liquids is a perennial challenge facing the water treatment and chemical processing industries - but things could be about to change thanks to a ground-breaking innovation by leading British tank producer Forbes Technologies Ltd.

Following an investment of over £1.7 million at their main manufacturing plant located in the Borders of Scotland at Kelso, Forbes has developed Innatank™. This complete self bunded tank system cleverly combines a chemical storage tank and integral bund within the same structure.

Put more simply, it can be described as a 'tank within a tank'.

Based on German experience, Innatank™ neatly addresses that trio of industry headaches; safety, space and ongoing maintenance requirements.

The new product is produced on the latest automated equipment which gives a seam free cylinder. Specifically designed to protect the environment & personnel from leakage or overfilling of chemical tanks, Innatank™ includes an integral, continual leak monitoring system, thus improving safety further. At the same time inspection requirements are dramatically reduced saving on ongoing operational costs.

Being a self bunded tank, Innatank™ does not require any other type of bunding, and can be bolted onto a flat plinth, a task which can be undertaken on delivery. This offers huge cost savings over civil or separate plastic bunding systems.

Meanwhile, the totally sealed bunding system has been designed to prevent ingress of rainwater or any risk of the floatation which is seen with separate bund & tanks systems.

With capacities up to 80 cubic metres, each tank system is manufactured in PE100 High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) or Copolymer Polypropylene using the latest helical winding process and conforms to DVS 2205 & BS EN 12573.

"This latest exciting development is another major step forward in meeting the demands of our already well-established markets. The company is in a fortunate position in being able to invest in R & D to bring this highly cost effective storage solution to market." stated Managing Director, Melvyn Jupp.

"With our latest automated equipment, high quality tanks at very competitive costs makes our unique Innatank™ very attractive".
