Wastewater describes waste materials from industrial and municipalities. These materials include sewage and industrial liquid waste.
In cities and urban areas any water or waste that goes down the drain heads to the wastewater treatment plant. Industrial waste includes liquids and some solids that contain chemicals and goes through their own wastewater treatment plant.
The waste materials are sent by a pump to the wastewater holding tanks, from there it is sent to the treatment tank. Once it has been cleaned of sediments and chemicals, it then pumped out to a final filter and then on to groundwater or body of water.
Steel Core has wastewater holding tanks that are made in America. They hold various capacities. Each tank is lined with an XR-3 or XR-5 liner.
Let’s take a look at what a wastewater treatment plant needs.
A wide variety of industries have processes that create waste materials and wastewater. As do cities and urban areas.
Steel Core has durable wastewater storage tanks up to 650,000 gallons using an XR-3 or XR-5 liner. Which liner you need depends on the chemical and bacterial content of the wastewater. It will also depend on if you are a private business or municipality as the regulations are slightly different. That is because private businesses must hold the wastewater, treat it, and then, hold it again. After that, it can be discharged either to the local wastewater treatment plant or discharged according to local and state regulations.
A wastewater holding tank or black water tank is for storing sewage. This includes vehicles such as RVs, trains, boats, and aircraft. Think of the sewer pump trucks you see that empty private rural septic tanks. That is a wastewater holding tank. It can also be an underground tank used for sewage in a private home in a rural setting.
There are various capacities. What size you will need will depend on the number of people using the restrooms in your home, RV, boat, etc. These tanks allow sediment to collect at the bottom of the tank. That sediment will be removed during tank cleaning.
Why is Steel Core the top manufacture of wastewater storage tanks?
First, Steel Core has done 100s of installations in the most active seismic region in California. California structural regulations are stronger than almost any place else in the world. The tanks we have installed were not damaged in the Napa quake in 2014. With many western and mid-western states experiencing quakes our knowledge and experience is what you need to overcome the problem.
Second, all installers of our tanks have been trained by us. No one can install our tanks unless they have gone through our training. We sent our training managers around the world to teach our sellers how to properly install our tanks.
Third, we exceed all industry standards with our tanks.
We also provide the best warranty. Our warranty is 10 to 20 years. And we are NFPA 22 COMPLIANT.
Any company that manufactures a product will have wastewater from one or more of its processes. That wastewater and sediment have to settle. It then goes through treatment before going to a holding tank to be discharged properly according to regulations.
Agriculture includes any fertilizers, pest control, and other processes used to keep crops and livestock healthy.
Fracking is a way to mine for gas that uses water to help break through the rock bed. This creates wastewater that has to be cleaned and discharged according to industry, state, and local regulations.
In municipalities, the residents are on the city’s water and sewer utility which provides drinking water. It also collects anything that goes through the drains and sends it to the wastewater treatment plant.
At SteelCore we have designed our tanks to meet or exceed all the industry standards. Especially in the seismic areas to make sure that the tanks will hold up to the earthquakes.
This is especially true when it comes to wastewater tanks. These tanks need to protect the environment. We will always make them exceed the industry, state, and local standards. We take environmental concerns very seriously.
It begins with the steel, G90 corrugated steel is the standard for the industry. But, our steel is G115 and is used to make all our tanks. This provides around 27% more erosion resistance than the G90.
We also have a unique corrugation that is a hill and vale bolting system. This system utilizes grade-8 Allen head bolts with notched nuts. Using this system provides Steel Core Tanks extra strength to manage larger loads.
Two different rib roof systems give even more strength to the system. The V-rib uses about 30% more rooftop ribs than any other producer. The J-rib system is sections constructed with superior galvanized steel. It has a 2.5 linking “J” channel that clips into place decreasing manufacturing time.
30 mil provides unmatched mechanical strength, tear and puncture resistance due to our proprietary layered construction. Due to its low weight and superior seams, it is an excellent choice for the construction of large prefabricated panels. It gives dimensional stability, great UV ozone & oxidation resistance. It is also non-toxic.
45 Mil has many benefits which include durability.
XR-3 is lighter-duty geomembrane. It’s an excellent choice for applications that require moderate chemical resistance and strength. This is commonly used in municipal wastewater and storm runoff water applications.
XR-5 used by builders in the harshest conditions. It is maximum strength and the most chemically resistant geomembrane on the market. In Use around the world, for use to line ponds, secondary containment, drifting covers, corrugated tanks, and wastewater baffles.
We manufacture our tanks with the highest standards. Standards that exceed industry standards, so you can be sure that your tank will do the job without problems.
