Self-bunded tanks

South Africa’s tough choice for safe, convenient, on-site storage and dispensing of hazardous liquids.

On site, on time and on spec for safety and eco-friendliness, Forgeweld self-bunded tanks are a popular choice for diesel depot’s and construction sites. The tanks are transportable, ready to use anywhere and can be easily repositioned on site.

Environment-friendly performance

Constructed from durable carbon steel, each tank-within-a-tank carries a 12-month workmanship guarantee. The tanks are positioned in either a round or a square bund. Access is by ladder to the manhole. Each tank comes fitted with two shut-off valves, one 50 mm vent, a flange ball valve for dispensing and an external pump for receiving. As an option, an external pump can be mounted to the tank for receiving and dispensing.

Built tough

Submerged arc welding, performed under a blanket of flux, ensures strong, clean welds with deep penetration and no spatter. Welds produced are sound, uniform, and corrosion resistant; these tanks are built to last.

Low maintenance

Maintenance is virtually zero. The exterior of both the internal tank and the bund is finished with a tough shield of high-spec paint. The internal tanks are single-walled cylinders. The interiors can be coated or painted, on request. The tanks are supplied in the dimensions shown below. Deliveries can be arranged.
