Bladders & Pillow Tanks

Get a Free Quote


    Raven Tanks can supply, install and upgrade your industrial bladder and pillow tanks for storing large water quantities.

    Pillow tanks are ground-level, self-supporting ‘balloon-like’ structures equipped to store water and other liquids using a flat, space-saving orientation.

    Mining, construction and agriculture industries collectively utilise bladder or pillow tanks due to their economical design, transportability and fast setup times. Emergency water storage such as fire tank reserves ideally suits pillow tank systems given their highly versatile positioning capabilities.

    Unlike GRP panel tanks or galvanised steel water tanks, bladder storage eliminates many traditional assembly processes like bolting modular sections together.

    Pillow & Bladder Tank Applications

    Raven Tanks’ bladder tanks have been subject to meticulous quality testing ensuring a fault-free installation and utilisation every time. Our pillow tanks will suit even the toughest of outdoor environments and landscapes including all climates and ground conditions.

    Although seemingly effortless to puncture, a pillow tank’s appearance is deceivingly hardy and proves borderline rupture-proof unless a proactive attempt to damage the material occurs.

    Deciding on whether to install a bladder or panel tank can be difficult, however, durability, efficiency and cost comparison are worth noting before purchasing.

    Pillow storage tanks are among the most versatile and dynamic tank setups, being the popular choice for a range of applications such as:

    • Potable drinking water – Human and animal consumption
    • Farming and irrigation – fertiliser storage
    • Food processing – oils, liquids and other food products
    • Emergency water reserves – fire tank resources
    • Fuel storage and spill management
    • Mining and drilling sites – remote location water and chemical storage, dust suppression
    • Dairy industries – effluent storage
    • Waste management – wastewater, sewage, grey water
    • Washdown applications – bays and workshops
    • Hydraulic fracturing
    • Decontamination processes – temporary storage solutions
    • Historic or restricted locations where galvanised steel water tanks aren’t allowed.

    Why Install a Pillow or Bladder Tank?

    While panel tanks serve most commercial and industrial applications rather sufficiently, pillow tanks prove more suitable for specialised purposes.

    Our pillow tank specifications demonstrate how such a design facilitates particular industry sectors and a multitude of unconventional applications.

    Benefits of utilising onsite pillow or bladder tanks include:

    • Zero-framework design and easily folded or rolled for a simple relocation
    • Limited site preparation
    • Space-saving technology – Requires only approximately 10% of its full capacity when disassembled
    • Double-sided thickness for extra strength and longevity
    • Custom-made to suit specific fitting sizes and types
    • Minimised evaporation and oxidation – Ideal for fuel storage, pillow tanks automatically readjust their configuration in accordance with current contents levels
    • Highly vermin-proof design
    • Includes additional ground layering for extra abrasion protection
    • Food processing and potable water-compliant – All components compliant with AS/NZS 4020
    • Fully enclosed, minimising workplace hazards and accidents – virtually inaccessible to humans
    • Eliminates plaster-like build-up in dairy effluent storage applications and is organically odourless
    • Professionally welded seams
    • Interconnective for simple capacity extensions
    • Zero safety fencing required
    • 5-Year product warranty
    • Individual tank units are available from 10,000L to 750,000L.
