|Sierra Sales 12,000 gallon poly HDPE, flat bottom dish top, poly upright (or vertical
)bulk storage tanks, one of four delivered to a waste treatment plant in New York. Tank design is for 1.9 specific
gravity, 141" diameter and 192" high. The vessels are constructed of HDPE, high density polyethylene.
HDPE is both repairable and recyclable. You don't need crosslinked polyethylene (HDXLPE) anymore! Be environmentally
correct and purchase a recyclable poly tank!
PE tanks can be used successfully in a wide variety of liquid and dry storage and handling applications.
PE tanks can be designed for use with many of the most corrosive
liquids such as sulfuric acid, hydrochloric acid, hydrofluoric acid and sodium hypochlorite.
The Chlorine Institute, Inc., Pamphlet 96 titled SODIUM
HYPOCHLORITE MANUAL, Edition 2, May 2000, Section 6.2, Storage Containers, Subsection 22.214.171.124, Materials of Construction, paragraph c), reads:
"Sodium hypochlorite users and manufacturers have had success with high density
linear polyethylene tanks, however, high density cross-linked polyethylene
should not be used. Vertical stress cracking has been experienced with
the cross-linked polyethylene storage tanks in this service."
This has, and continues to be Sierra Sales's, and Sierra Sales's customers' experiences.
Don't believe all the cross-linky stuff! Sierra Sales offers a better warranty along with better pricing for this

The vessels, both the poly vertical tank and the poly containment basin, were
ordered and delivered via "hot-shot" with less than two weeks lead time. With low overhead Sierra Sales's
sales team was able to save the private community a substantial amount of hard earned bucks and make a "timely"
delivery. This customer already has plans to "come back for more!" The poly tank and poly containment
basin were more than satisfactory!
The poly vessels, both the poly vertical tank and the poly containment basin,
above were put into service storing sodium hypochlorite at 17% and were warranteed for three  years by the manufacturer.

The polyethylene upright chemical storage tank was used to "feed" the
water treatment equipment systems. The poly tank was also used as a "filling station" to load plastic
IBCs for shipment to smaller facilities. The all plastic ibcs used were square stackables and Snyder Industries'
550 gal Megatainers (the worlds' largest all plastic IBCs).
The all plastic ibcs were all UN and DOT/HM approved for "over the road"
transportation of hazardous materials. The all plastic 550 gal Megatainer IBCs are versatile and lightweight, the
industry's largest poly (all plastic) IBC. These plastic ibcs systems are dependable transportation for bulk chemicals
