Bolted Tanks for Storage of Bulk Solids and Liquids

Bolted Silos
Bolted steel tanks are commonly used for storage solutions of liquids and dry goods, such as water, sand, grains, chemicals, powders, and bulk solids. They are constructed from individual steel panels that are manufactured at an enclosed facility, then transported to the site and bolted together using gaskets and fasteners for the material that will be stored. Bolted tanks offer several advantages to conventional concrete or welded tanks, which typically requires longer fabrication time. Bolted tanks provide quicker manufactuing and installation, lower shipping costs, and can be assembled in all weather conditions, eliminating many weather-related delays. Our tanks are offered in several finishes: Powder Coated, Hot Dipped Galvanized, or Stainless Steel.
Bolted Silos Features

Features and Advantages


Bolted Tank Flanged Panel design and Flat Panel design each provide their own unique advantages.  Both feature baked on coatings for long life and both designs are proven leak proof with thousands of installations worldwide.  Based upon your needs we will recommend the correct design for your application.

Why Bolted Tanks?

Our bolted tanks are specially constructed to be leak proof, evident by the thousands used in liquid applications, as well as for bulk solids.  They offer a cost effective alternative to welded silos and are recognized as an acceptable alternate to field-weld construction in the power industry (i.e., limestone, lime, water, fly ash, coal storage, etc.). Our Bolted Tanks incorporate heavy-duty, robust tank engineering designed for low maintenance and long term performance. The bolted RTP (rolled, tapered panel) tank construction outperforms all other types of bolted tank construction through its superior design, proprietary coating systems and safe field installation processes. Our team of experts have vast experience in tank design and process engineering, and will assist you in choosing the best design for your specific application.


Applications:  Water, wastewater, fire protection, cement, fly ash, coal, limestone, lime, aggregates, minerals, chemicals, plastics, select foods, wood waste & other miscellaneous dry products.
