Please call our resident Ferric Chloride Tank experts at (866) 310-2556. Our team has over a decade of experience working with poly and plastic tanks. We can help guide you to the perfect choice of tank for your specific application.
Ferric Chloride Tanks & Containers
- Ferric Chloride Tanks available in HDLPE (High Density Linear Polyethylene)
with a 1.9 specific gravity rating or in HDXLPE (High Density Crosslinked
Polyethylene) also with a 1.9 specific gravity rating.
Full Drain Option:
- SUMO (Snyder Unitized Molded Outlet)
- Available on single wall ferric chloride vertical tanks in 2,000 to 12,500 gallon
- Encapsulated Hastelloy or Titanium threaded ring with PVC adapter.
Double Wall Ferric Chloride Tanks:
- Mini-Captor and CAPTOR Containment Systems (CCS) - 35 to 10,000 gallons.
- Primary Tank - HDLPE, 1.9 specific gravity rating (ASTM D-1998 - 600 psi hoop stress
design) or HDXLPE with 1.9 specific gravity rating.
- Secondary Containment Tank made from HDLPE with 1.5 specific gravity rating.
Ferric Chloride Tank Fittings
- Fittings made from PVC (schedule 80)
- Gasket material: EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer)
- Bolts made from Hastelloy or Titanium
Ferric Chloride Tank Plumbing
- Flexible Connections with fittings required.
- 4% Vertical and lateral expansion and contraction of the tank to be expected.
- Flexible Ferric Chloride Tank Connections reduces vibrations from pumps and piping
stress on the tank, its fitting and gaskets.
- Connections, piping and valves must all have structural support independent of the
sidewalls of the tank and tank dome.
Ferric Chloride Tank Venting
- Ferric Chloride Tanks are designed for use at atmospheric pressure. Pressure or
a vacuum may cause the tank to deform or for damage to occur to the tank and void
the tank's warranty.
- Venting equipment must be sized to limit the pressure or vacuum in the tank to a
maximum of 1/2" water column which corresponds to 0.018 PSI. Pneumatically filled
tanks may require additional pressure relief.
Ferric Chloride Tank Foundation & Restraints
- Ferric Chloride Tanks should be positioned on a smooth concrete or asphalt pad to
provide the tank with adequate support. Make sure the pad is clean, smooth and level
so there is no deflection in the bottom support of the Ferric Chloride Tank.
- If seismic restraint must be employed use a pad that is large enough for anchor
plate attachments per the requirements in the seismic code.
Ferric Chloride Tank Temperature:
- Ferric Chloride Tanks should not be exposed to temperatures greater than 100 degrees
Fahrenheit during delivery or storage.
