Cimpina manufactures high quality storage and process tanks up to 30,000 Litres in capacity in a range of shapes and sizes. Stainless steel is primarily used however depending on the nature of the product/process it may be more prudent to manufacture using Carbon Steel or Lead e.g. Sulphuric Acid at high temperature is better stored in a lead lined tank. Members of the Chlorides group of chemicals are better stored in Carbon Steel tanks.

Our full service includes – design, fabrication, testing, installation and after sales maintenance.

Each tank is custom made and designed to meet the relevant standards. During the design process the full range of environmental and operational factors are investigated i.e.

  • Design Life
  • Drainability
  • Heating & Insulation
  • Internal & External Pressures
  • Liquid Temperatures – Delivery /Operational /Crystallisation /Boiling/Flash Point
  • Loadings – Wind, Seismic, Personnel
  • Location
  • Material Compatibility
  • Measurement Gauge
  • Method of Fill and Empty
  • Overflow, Bunding and Leak Detection System
  • Personnel Access
  • Pipework
  • Site Gasket Preference
  • Specific Gravity of the material to be stored
  • User requirements for disengagement space, liquid min & max operating levels
  • Ventilation

Insurance and third party client appointed inspectors are welcome to visit during the planning, manufacturing and testing stages. We organise the NDT using local third party engineers.

On completion of manufacture clients are issued with a complete dossier. This incorporates an operation and maintenance manual, tank declaration of performance, material & consumable mill certificates, welder qualifications, weld procedure specifications, quality plans, test certificates and as-built drawings.

Cimpina also has the ability to manufacture, inspect, and repair pressure Vessels in accordance with PED Standards, completing a range of works with Zurich Insurance. For further information on our pressure vessel capability speak to one of our sales staff.
