Topweld General Engineering offers sturdy and secure stainless steel storage tank metal fabrication services for residential or industrial use in New South Wales and Canberra. The storage tanks we build are made to last, and can be relied upon when storing clean water, fuel, or other types of contents over long periods of time.
Stainless steel is a remarkable alloy with a multitude of uses. Many of the things we interact with in our daily lives are made of stainless steel, some good examples are the utensils we use to eat and tools we use in the office. Though it is slightly weaker in terms of overall durability compared to steel, the alloy makes up for it with its exceptional resistance to corrosion. For this reason, it is also widely used in factories in the form of pipes, pressure tubes, and of course, storage tanks.
Topweld offers fabrication services for stainless steel storage tanks to be used in different industries, from residential real estate to factories producing all sorts of goods.
Topweld is home to professional stainless steel welders and fabricators that are highly experienced in building secure storage tanks. Our team has worked on different projects over the years, so we are confident that we can put out results that will exceed your expectations. We don’t take any shortcuts, especially when it comes to the quality of our custom welding services, so you can rest assured knowing that your custom metal fabrication is built to last.
Stainless steel is durable and resistant to corrosion, this makes it a suitable material for building storage tanks that would be used to store contents that must not be contaminated. It is also great at insulating heat and is easy enough to weld.
It is very important to keep the water that will be used for drinking, bathing, cooking, and other purposes clean and pure. Stainless steel is a prime candidate when building domestic and industrial water storage tanks because it does not rust unlike other metals.
Water that has been kept in a secure stainless steel storage tank can last up to half a year or six months and still be safe to drink. This assumes, however, that the tank is kept closed without any cracks or leaks where contaminants may enter.
Although plastic tanks are much cheaper than stainless steel, they are not very good at regulating temperature, which often results in these tanks becoming contaminated with algae. For long term water storage, stainless steel is the clear winner.
