Dry Bulk Tanks vs. Liquid Tanks

Not sure of the difference between the dry option and the liquid option? Let’s clear up any confusion and answer your pressing questions.

Large tanks will always be necessary for both storing and transporting dry or liquid materials. Depending on what you will be storing in the tank, you will end up choosing a tank that meets the right criteria for the materials you will be storing. As there is such a wide variety of tanks on the market, each made to hold a specific material, you’ll find that the criteria and the actual design of the tanks will differ. While the size, units, material corrosion, foundation, composition and standards will play a role in determining the differences between the two types of tanks, it is the design that plays the biggest role of all.

The design for liquid tanks is generally as follows:

  • Generally cylindrical
  • They are made to be perpendicular to the ground.
  • The roof is either fixed or floating.
  • Tanks can be open or closed, depending on the liquid inside.
  • They will have a flat bottom, cone bottom, dish bottom, or slope bottom.
  • Each tank has a thick shell to prevent liquids from spilling and to prevent outside elements from entering.
  • The tanks are built to meet the requirements set for maintaining the pH as well as the fluctuating temperatures.

The design that is applicable to dry tanks includes:

  • Being built in an upright position or in a horizontal position.
  • Some are designed with a flat bottom of wood or steel, so long as the floor is capable of holding up to 2 000 000 cubic feet.
  • The tanks are designed to be completely air tight to prevent outside elements from getting in.
