CST Industries (UK) LTD is a wholly owned subsidiary of CST Industries Inc., the world’s largest manufacturer of engineered above ground bolted steel sectional storage tanks and silos for liquid and dry bulk applications. With over 250,000 tanks worldwide and our ISO 9001 accreditation, CST Industries (UK) LTD ensures consistent quality and service for the design, manufacture and installation of liquid storage tanks.
CST Industries (UK) LTD specialises in the design and manufacture of cylindrical and VersaTank galvanised steel bolted storage tanks. These tanks are primarily used for storing water in the fire sprinkler, potable water and irrigation markets.
The tanks are assembled on site by overlapping and bolting galvanised steel panels. Tanks are sealed using either mastic or a synthetic rubber membrane liner in conjunction with a roof cover to provide a reliable and low maintenance solution for water storage.
Storage tanks manufactured from galvanised steel offer many benefits over other steel corrosion protection systems. Unlike other protective coatings that rely solely on steel panel preparation to obtain adequate adhesion, galvanising produces a coating that is bonded metallurgically to the steel.
Standard cylindrical designed tanks consist of galvanised steel sheets 2.5m long x 1.25m high with thickness varying dependent upon tank size. Tank diameters range from 3.1m to 31.0m with height dependent upon diameter providing capacities from 9m3 to over 4000m3.
Manufactured from mill galvanised steel in accordance with BS EN 10204 or steel in accordance with BS EN 10025 which is subsequently hot dip galvanised to BS EN 1460:1999 standard.
Sheets are assembled on site using a lap joint and galvanised silo bolts. The tank shell is fixed to the concrete foundation using a pre-rolled galvanised angle, clamps and parabolts with a similar stiffening angle fixed to the top of the tank shell.
The tank is supplied with a roof cover, a galvanised access ladder and platform and inlet and outlet connections. Insulated walls and roof cover are also available where the risk of a consistently low temperature would cause a problem. Ancillaries such as ball valve, heater, contents gauge etc. can also be supplied.
