Why water tank liners are considered a critical component to tanks
Thursday, September 11, 2014
Water tank liners
for potable and industrial use are an important component to steel or aluminum / galvanized cylindrical bolted panel sprinkler and potable water storage tanks. Tank liners
preserve the longevity of the tank and form an important barrier to toxins leaching into the water.

There are different types of water storage tank liners available on the market each with their own unique features. Russetts Developments supplies a rubber tank liner manufactured from either Butyl or EPDM. Both have very high technical specifications, which means they are considered to be one of the best options available.
Advantages of EPDM water tank liners

Tank liner fulfilment and installation
Russetts Developments (RDL) provide a quote following discussions with the client about the type of tank to be lined and dimensions. Using the measurement provided the tank liner is fabricated in our Milton Keynes based facilities. We then transport the liner to the job site for installation. For steel or galvanised circular water storage tanks, the tank liner is installed using bolted fixings. This involves the attachment of steel eyelets to the top circumference of the tank liner which then coincides with the bolt pitch of the tank panels.
Prior the installing the tank liner we always recommend the additional installation of a one piece stitched geotextile matting bag. This additional protective layer is installed to protect the liner from extreme temperatures radiated through the tank panel sheets, to protect the liner during tank installation and to cushion the liner from floating ice damage.
