Types of Used Tanks Available
Here are some of the top OEMs for air compressors that are widely used in the lab industry:
- Stainless Steel Tanks: As the name suggests, these tanks are made of high-quality stainless steel. They are ideal for storing or processing a wide range of products, from chemicals to foodstuffs. Stainless steel tanks are corrosion-resistant, durable, and easy to clean, making them a popular choice for many industries.
- Glass-Lined Tanks: These tanks feature a layer of glass coating on the inside surface of the tank. This glass layer provides a non-reactive surface that is ideal for storing or processing acidic or alkaline substances. Glass-lined tanks are also easy to clean and maintain, making them a great choice for applications where cleanliness is critical.
- Carbon Steel Tanks: Carbon steel tanks are strong and durable, and can be used for a wide range of applications. They are commonly used for storing or processing oil, gas, and chemicals.
- Plastic Tanks: These tanks are made of polyethylene or polypropylene, and are commonly used for storing or processing chemicals and other corrosive substances. They are lightweight, easy to install, and require very little maintenance. However, they are not as durable as steel tanks and may need to be replaced more frequently.
