Configurations : One and All

Our tanks are available in standard sizes and configurations ranging from 65 barrels/2,795 gallons all the way up to 24,000 barrels/ I million gallons with larger sizes available on request. Four different styles of tanks standard, cone bottom, vapor tight and open top are available to meet virtually all storage tank needs.

The Standard tank consist of a cone deck and flat bottom. The cone bottom is similar to the standard tank except that the bottom is conical rather than flat. The cone roof of the vapor tight tank is gasketed to insure against loss of vapor. The open top tank features a reinforcing ring around the perimeter of the top stave.

Water and waste water storage tanks

Construction: Tough and Ready

Our bolted steel tanks are designed, engineered and built to take punishment. Decks feature a steel rafter construction and rugged center post support in accordance with API/AWWA standards for even longer life aluminum or fiberglass decks are also available.

Our rubber gaskets are manufactured to exacting specifications to meet virtually any storage need from potable water to crude oil, gasoline and edible oils. Gaskets are accurately pre-punched with bolts slightly smaller than the bolts, preventing leakage along the threads and insuring a tight, leak-proof seal.

All tanks are available with either flush or extended cleanout openings. On the flush design, the cover plate bolts directly to the stave, the extended cleanout fastens a three-inch extension to the stave to which the cover plate is bolted.

Walks and ladders on Superior Bolted Storage Tanks conform to all OSHA requirements.

Coatings : Durability and Chemical Resistance

Superior has adapted the most advanced coating technology available in bolted tank manufacturing. Factory applied ” Thermoset Fusion bonded Powder Coating.”

  • DupontTANK TAN Interior Epoxy is applied 5 mils thick to interior shell and appurtenances.
  • DupontSUPERIOR SAND Exterior Polyester (Tan) is applied 3 mils thick to exterior shell components.

Powder Coatings are electrostatically applied and then cured at high temperatures for greater film thickness to achieve adequate bonding and coverage, resulting in added chemical resistance to corrosion, chipping and scratching and other abuses, along with faster turn around time and greater control of thickness and hardness. Our Powder Coatings are NSF 61 approved and they meet all API/AWWA and FDA standards. Superior also features hot-dipped galvanized tanks.

Superior Tanks: Safe and Sound

Meticulous design and engineering, rigidly controlled manufacturing, and careful field erection all contribute to a superior final product and a tank that will do its job with minimal attention for decades to come.

But there’s more to Superior than just our tanks. There’s our service. If any problems arise, you can count on us to be back and make all necessary repairs… FAST. All our tanks come guaranteed.
