2. What kind of steel are used in tanks?
Carbon steel is an alloy that can be easily fabricated (bent, rolled, and welded) into desired forms. These features makes carbon steel the most economic and popular material for majority of the storage tank applications.
As a relatively inexpensive material that meets the requirements for most storage applications, mild carbon steel is a great choice for tanks designed for chemical, fuel, oil, and water storage. Carbon steel tanks can also be coated with different types of epoxy, polyurethane or rubber in order to prevent corrosion based on the stored material.
Stainless steel is an alloy of steel with chromium content that is a better resistant to rusting and corrosion compared to carbon steel. For storing corrosive chemicals and liquids, often traditional coatings of carbon steel does not offer enough protection. For such material, stainless steel tanks offer more durable and long lasting storage.
