Precision storage and buffer tanks can be used in combination with any heating or cooling system to provide the right storage capacity for the time interval needed. They are available in a variety of configurations and features to meet a variety of storage needs, taking total volume, flow rate, duration and timing of peak load period and temperature needed into account. Our horizontal or vertical configurations in a variety of sizes utilize available space as efficiently as possible. Larger sizes, higher design pressures, and other custom features are available upon request.
Storage and Buffer Tanks
Capacities: 125 gallons to 5,500 gallons of actual capacity; contact us for larger options available
Standard Model: ASME Section IV, “HLW” Stamp
A storage or buffer tank for every need. With a wide variety of available options, Precision provides flexible solutions to your specific storage tank needs. In addition to easily meeting a variety of requirements, Precision tanks offer the unique ability to be used as a buffer or chilled water tank, when configured with a baffle mounted in the center of the tank. All Precision storage tanks can be furnished with insulation and jacketing for heat loss prevention and maximum thermal efficiency. A properly insulated tank may reduce the size of the storage capacity required to meet the recovery and volume demands, lowering overall cost.
- Storage tanks are available in both 125 psi (400 gal. and larger) and 150 psi design pressures, and both can be ordered in either horizontal or vertical configurations
- All models are available unlined or lined with either Precision Seal (PS) or Aluminum Silicate Cement (C), both NSF-61 compliant
- PS: our two-part epoxy alternative to glass lining, suitable for storing water up to 180oF and unlike glass, can be repaired in the field; PS lined vessels include a five-year warranty, with the last two years pro-rated
- C: cement, suitable for higher temperature service, up to 250oF and/or for tanks larger than 36” diam.; cement lined vessels include a ten-year warranty, with the last five years prorated
- Storage tanks are available with or without insulation and jacketing
- Storage tanks can be configured with a baffle mounted in the center of the tank to create a buffer tank or a chilled water tank
