1500 gallon Dished Bottom
was called to perform initial budgetary pricing for tanks in
several materials of construction for this global ink
manufacturer building a new plant in the Midwest. After
reviewing various materials of construction across multiple
applications, the customer decided to use fiberglass for the
majority of their tank needs due to the combination of cost,
expected service life, and flexibility. In all, a total of
45 fiberglass tanks ranging from 1500 to 15000 gallons were
supplied by CRECO. Roughly 60% of the tanks had provisions
for direct mounting industrial mixers to the tank tops
utilizing heavy reinforced agitator flanges.
The logistics of managing a project of this size
are daunting. The tanks needed to be installed in a precise
order as storage space was limited, while the sheer number
of tanks meant shipping costs had to be controlled as well.
CRECO coordinated the manufacture and delivery of specific
tank combinations to satisfy the aggressive construction
schedule, while still utilizing full truckload shipments to
minimize the freight costs.
In addition to the fiberglass tanks, CRECO also
supplied a total of 13 Stainless Steel Mixing Tanks in
various sizes. See more information on that portion of the
project under the “Stainless Steel” tab on our website!
