Horizontal storage tanks (DIN)

Underground and above-ground storage in mild-steel tanks

Behälter KG offers cylindrical tanks for underground and above-ground storage of water-polluting, flammable and non-flammable liquids. Production takes place in accordance with DIN 6608, DIN 6616 and DIN EN 12285. Apart from single walled horizontal tanks for non-hazardous products, we also offer double walled cylindrical tanks for hazardous products. The double shell is continuously monitored through vacuum or alternatively though a liquid leakage indicator to ensure that the tank can safely be operated and is free of defects and leakages. Storage tanks are made of S235 JR (steel) as standard, other materials are also possible at extra cost (e.g. stainless steel). Standard tanks all have a DN 600 dome on the top of the tank. Additional accessories such as saddle feet, additional domes or flanges can be offered at an additional cost. This also applies to services such as sandblasting or painting the storage tanks. Each tank is delivered with the corresponding test certificate.

Storage tanks according to DIN for underground storage have the designations 6608/1 (single-walled) and 6608/2 (double-walled). Storage tanks according to DIN for above-ground storage have the designations 6616/1 (single-walled) and 6616/2 (double-walled)
