Choosing the right storage tank can be a bit tricky, and there are a lot of things you need to take into account when doing so. Some of the practical questions you may ask yourself are:

  • How much can I spend?
  • What kind of tank can store my material at the best value?
  • How long will I need it to last?
  • How much of my resources will be needed for regular maintenance?
  • What are the safety codes I need to abide by?

There are other considerations that factor into this decision as well. The good news is that a steel storage tank will most likely satisfy them all!

Here at Coastal Technical Sales, we’ve been pairing businesses and managers with the perfect steel tanks in PA and its surrounding areas for almost 40 years. Over the course of that time, we’ve noticed that steel storage tanks are often the best choice for a number of reasons. So we thought we’d share some of the advantages of choosing a steel storage tank with you, because we know that upgrading or installing storage tanks isn’t easy.

1.       Longevity

Wouldn’t it be nice to install a storage tank and then never have to worry about replacing it? Well, you can. Stainless steel tanks are renowned for their longevity. In fact, it would not be unexpected if a stainless steel tank lasts over 100 years. These tanks are resistant to the elements, they don’t rust, they are fire-resistant and they are immune to the effects of UV rays, which means they never need to be painted.

2.       Cost

Price is always one of the most influential factors when it comes to most business decisions. And the business of storage tank installation is no different. However, welded steel storage tanks are a great option for the frugal because they are very low maintenance.

3.       Versatility

For those of us who need a reliable storage unit for temperature-sensitive material, carbon steel tanks are an excellent option. Carbon steel tanks can store products that are on either extreme of the temperature spectrum. These tanks are also the go-to for businesses that need to safely store flammable materials.

4.       Cleanliness and Contamination

In regards to hygiene, no other tanks compare to steel tanks. Steel tanks are very easy to keep clean, and the costs for doing so are nowhere near as high as they are for other materials. That isn’t just regarding their appearance, either. Steel tanks are the best choice for storing perishables, drinking water and food because nothing gets inside them. They are virtually impenetrable.
