Comparing Stainless Steel and Carbon Steel Tanks

0 Comment Adam Furphy

We are seeing a shift away from Carbon Steel Tanks to Stainless Steel.
WHY? It’s all about WOL ‘Whole of Life’ cost, which delivers longer service life, lower maintenance requirements & less disruption to your business. Consider these cost implications for your business operations. What’s the life expectancy of your tank’s interior coating? What is the cost to re-coat your tank? Does your tank have insulation or cladding that will need to be removed for the re-coating to occur? How long will you need to shut down the operating area surrounding your tank during the re-coat?
Review our case study for a comparison of the performance potential.
