Corrosion resistant, lightweight products are always in demand by the oil and gas industry. Norwesco Polyethylene Tanks offer off the shelf, readily available solutions for inside facilities and at jobsites. The corrosion and UV resistant qualities of polyethylene, combined with the relatively low price in comparison to metal tanks make poly tanks a viable and responsible choice for the storage of water and corrosive liquids. Norwesco Spill Trays offer secondary containment options for applications that require them. If a true dual wall storage tank is required, look no further than Snyder Industries and the Captor that has become very popular across Western Canada. The Captor offers 115%+ containment in an engineered polyethylene tank built to ASTM D-1998 in sizes ranging from 35 to 13,700 US gallons.
Norwesco, Banjo, Greenleaf and ARAG polypropylene fittings are another choice for corrosion applications. Much cheaper than stainless steel, polypropylene fittings are often more chemical resistant than the steel equivalent. By utilizing a glass filled fabrication technique, high quality polypropylene fittings are tougher than one would expect. These aren’t simply plastic fittings.
ZCL Fiberglass Tanks available from Polywest include underground water and wastewater tanks as well as above ground corrosion resistant offerings from ZCL Corrosion. The popularity of fiberglass lies with its high specific strength, ability to form shapes, inherent durability and low relative investment. ZCL tanks can be built for almost any above or below ground application and they are backed by years of experience engineering quality products.
Other Polywest products that are found in the oil and gas industry include specialized polyethelyne fabricated solutions. For a list of capabilities, please visit our Rotationally Molded Products page.
