Straight Talk On Double Wall Tank Leak Detection
Double walled tanks, also known as interstitial tanks, are tanks that have two walls with a space (interstitial space) in between. The purpose of this space is to provide an additional layer of protection against leaks or spills of the liquid stored in the tank. Double wall tanks are used in a variety of industries, including chemical, oil and gas, and environmental management.
When selecting a material for double walled tanks, polyethylene plastic tanks are often the best choice for many corrosive chemicals. This is because polyethylene is a thermoplastic that is resistant to many chemicals and has a high resistance to impact and environmental stress cracking. It is also lightweight, easy to install and has a low cost of ownership.
Leak detection sensors are essential for double walled tanks, as they are designed to detect leaks in the interstitial space of double wall tanks. Levelpro leak detection sensors are excellent for double wall piping systems, as they are highly accurate, reliable and can detect leaks in real-time.
When a leak occurs, it is important to have an immediate response to minimize damage and protect the environment. The ProAlert Audible Visual Alarm is an important addition to a leak detection system, as it alerts the operator to the leak and provides a visual indication of the location of the leak. This allows for a quick response and limits the potential for environmental damage and costly cleanup.
In summary, double walled tanks are tanks that have two walls with a space in between, used to provide an additional layer of protection against leaks or spills. Polyethylene plastic tanks are best choice for many corrosive chemicals as they are resistant to many chemicals, lightweight and easy to install. Levelpro leak detection sensors are excellent for double wall piping systems as they are accurate and reliable and can detect leaks in real-time.
