A STONESTEEL® TANK LINING A STONESTEEL®
Tank is constructed with a steel shell which completely supports
a uniform, water resistant lining of hydraulic STONESTEEL®.
The rusting and corrosion common with steel tanks is prevented because
the water touches only non-corrosive surfaces. The STONESTEEL®
is applied in a continuous arch against the metal wall and will
not be injured by ordinary use or handling.
The vessel is filled with water, the
STONESTEEL® absorbs water into its pore spaces.
The small amount of free oxygen in the
water absorbed by the STONESTEEL® lining oxidizes against the
steel tank wall, thus making the water within the lining insert.
The barrier created by the inert water
absorbed in the STONESTEEL® lining prevents oxygenated water from
coming into contact with the steel tank wall, thus preventing rusting
and failure of the cement lined storage tank.
STONESTEEL®tanks are manufactured in a wide range of sizes. Please click
on the "sizing" button above to assist you in choosing the correct
gallon capacity and dimensions. Tank diameter is measured over the
outside of the head, and length refers to the overall tank length.
tanks can be built in accordance with working pressures designed
to suit particular jobs. Tanks are usually built for 125 psig working
pressure, but we are able to provide tanks with pressure from 1
to 500 psig.
tanks are furnished with non-corrosive stainless steel threaded
opening, when specified, to assure that water never contacts corrosive
material. In accordance with ASME Code requirements, openings 4"
and larger are furnished as 150# ANSI flanges. When flanged openings
are provided, the neck of the flange is lined with STONESTEEL®
tank lining to provide corrosion protection. All threaded openings
are furnished as female NPT openings.
tanks are provided with 12" x 16" elliptical manholes on 42" diameter
and larger diameter tanks as required by the ASME Code. Other manhole
sizes are available and can be furnished upon request. Smaller tank
diameters do not require a manhole, but a manhole or handhole can
be provided if so specified. Manhole or handhole openings are lined
to insure continuous protection against rust and corrosion.
CEMLINE CORPORATION, as the originator of STONESTEEL®
lining, takes pride in supplying the most durable tank lining available.
is normally applied approximately 1/2" thick to the tank interior.
tanks can be provided as a factory insulated package. CEMLINE storage
tanks can be supplied with CEMLINE tube bundles designed and sized
to suit job requirements and customer specifications. A submerged
heating coil sizing program can be run following the sizing of the
