Hazardous Chemical Tanks

Both ASME stamped pressure vessels and API or UL certified storage tanks may also be categorized as Hazardous Chemical Tanks. A hazardous chemical tank is defined by the contents within the tank rather than by the specific tank design features. Imperial Steel Tank Company has designed, fabricated and installed custom hazardous pressurized chemical tanks based on the customers specific needs since almost everything but water has some degree of hazard associated with it, we ask that MSDS Sheets or a complete chemical description be provided, as well as the following:

  • Material of Construction (If Known)
  • Capacity and Desired Dimensions
  • Pressure / Vacuum Rating ( For pressurized chemical tanks)
  • Heating / Cooling Requirements
  • Size and Number of Process and Access Openings
  • Desired Design Standard (ASME, API, AWWA, …etc.)
