Before we present the key considerations for maintenance, let us explore the depths of water and chemical storage tanks and liners.

What is a Panel Fire Water Tank and Liner?

When it comes to storing water for firefighting purposes, industrial and commercial settings often turn to specialized solutions like Panel Fire Water Tanks and liners. These enhanced systems are designed to provide reliable access to a large volume of water in case of emergencies, particularly fires. 

Components of Panel Fire Water Tank:


      • Structure: Panel Fire Water Tanks, sometimes called sectional tanks, are modular tanks constructed from individual panels made of materials like steel or GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic). These panels are assembled on-site to create a large, customizable water storage tank.

      • Capacity: These tanks can range in size from relatively small units to massive reservoirs capable of holding thousands of cubic meters of water.

      • Accessibility: They are often positioned in strategic locations, making it easier for firefighters to access water quickly during emergencies.

      • Firefighting: Panel Fire Water Tanks are primarily designed for firefighting purposes. Must be equipped with high-capacity outlets and pumps to ensure a strong and steady supply of water when needed most.

      • Versatility: These tanks are versatile and can be used in different methods, including industrial facilities, commercial complexes, and even in remote areas where access to a municipal water supply may be limited.

    Liner for Panel Fire Water Tanks:


        • Purpose: A liner is an essential component of Panel Fire Water Tanks. It serves as an inner barrier that prevents water from seeping into the tank’s structural materials, protecting against corrosion and ensuring water quality.

        • Material: Liners are typically made from materials like reinforced polyethylene or PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride). These materials are chosen for their durability and resistance to chemicals.

        • Installation: Liners are installed inside the tank, creating a watertight seal. Proper installation is critical to ensure the tank remains leak-free and the stored water remains uncontaminated.

        • Longevity: A well-maintained liner can significantly extend the lifespan of a Panel Fire Water Tank, making it a cost-effective choice for long-term firefighting solutions.

      What is a Tank Liner?

      Liners and Bladders are essential to getting the best protection for your tanks. To protect the contents and the life of your Water and Chemical Storage Tanks – Raven Tanks & Liners has the expertise to match and install suitable liners and bladders for your application.

      Key Considerations for Maintenance

      When it comes to servicing industrial and commercial water and chemical storage tanks and liners, certain considerations should be at the forefront of your maintenance plan:


          • Regular Inspections. Frequent inspections should be conducted to assess the overall condition of the tanks and liners. This includes checking for signs of corrosion, cracks, or damage to protective coatings.

          • Cleaning and Sanitization. Cleaning is essential for water storage tanks to remove sediment, scale, and microbial growth. Chemical storage tanks should be thoroughly cleaned to prevent chemical buildup and contamination.

          • Leak Detection. Implementing leak detection systems is crucial for identifying leaks early and preventing potential environmental hazards and product losses.

          • Liner Maintenance. If your tanks have liners, their maintenance is equally important. Liner inspections, repairs, or replacements should be conducted as needed.

          • Corrosion Control. Corrosion is a common issue in metal storage tanks. Utilizing corrosion-resistant coatings and conducting regular checks for signs of corrosion can mitigate this problem.

          • Regulatory Compliance. Ensure that your tanks and liners comply with industry-specific regulations. Regularly update your systems to meet changing standards.
