Guidelines for different model tanks

Standard Tank 

This tank is complete with internally flanged base, externally flanged side walls. All under water stays are stainless steel.

Light Duty Cover  

Only suitable for indoor use, and for the storage of foul water. They are not designed to take man weight.

Heavy Duty Cover

Suitable for indoor and outdoor use, and for the storage of foul water. These tanks have internally flanged lid panels, similar to those used in the base.

Heavy Duty Cover and Finished to Format 30

Suitable for indoor, outdoor use and for the storage of potable (drinking) water.

Types of Bolts

Standard tanks come complete with bolts galvanised to BS 729, we recommend that consultants specify Stainless Steel grade 316 S16 bolts under water.

Dividers

In any situation where there is only one water storage tank in a building and the capacity is greater that 1000 litres (220 gallons), BS 6700 states “To avoid interruption of the water supply when carrying out repairs or maintenance, the cistern shall be provided with compartments or standby cistern”. Note: we recommend that two separate tanks be used, where an uninterrupted water supply is critical.

Condensation trays

These should be used in any instance where condensation drips from pipework, or from the tank could cause nuisance damage or render floors wet and slippery. Tricel manufacture condensation trays to suit all sizes of water storage tanks.

Ball valve housing

Enclosed chamber containing an access hatch above the level of the cover, permitting the level control mechanism to be mounted at a higher level that would otherwise be possible.

Ladders

Where tank depth is 1.5 m or greater, internal and external ladders should be specified. If the tank is on a raised platform then ladders may be required on tanks lower than this height.

(Externally flanged base) These types of tanks allow the tank to be totally drained down, as the base is flat and they also allow access to all the bolts from outside the tank.

Baffle

Construction of one or more panels within a tank, which partially subdivides the tank in order to increase the length of the flow-path between the inlet and the outlet from the tank.
