Polyethylene Horizontal Tanks
Poly horizontal tanks are available in many configurations and capacities. Round polyethylene, hdpe and hdlpe, poly horizontal tanks are manufactured with or without legs. The smaller capacities, poly horizontal tanks under 500 gallons, can be used without the steel support hoops. Although these poly tanks are primarily designed for non DOT use, Sierra Sales does supply a few that are UN/DOT approved, plastic IBCs. Look at our 550 gallon all plastic Megatainer IBCs.
Elliptical horizontal bulk storage tanks are available from 300 to 2625 gallons. These are wider but provide SHORTER heights. Most polyethylene elliptical horizontal tanks are poly leg tanks providing the poly tank support and ease of installation.
Sierra Sales stocks the worlds' largest variety of horizontal polyethylene bulk storage tanks including the worlds' largest all plastic horizontal IBCs, 550 gallon Megatainer plastic IBCs!
Round poly horizontal storage tanks are available with molded in sump bottoms for better drainage. The smaller capacities are frequently found on equipment such as sprayers, irrigation equipment, and more. Three quarter inch drain fittings are standard on 20-55 gallon tanks. Three quarter inch and 1-1/4' drain fittings are standard on 110-200 gallon tanks. Most larger horizontal, and horizontal leg, tanks are supplied with anti-surge baffles.
Similar horizontal tanks are our below ground water storage and septic tanks. These high density polyethylene tanks are designed to be buried and have all the accessories required to make your installation complete; plumbing kits, manways, manway extensions, sanitary tees, gaskets, and more.
Sierra Sales delivers tanks constructed of HDPE (Polyethylene), HDXLPE (High Density Crosslinked Polyethylene), PP (Polypropylene), FRP (Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic), and Steel. Any material can be used to construct your vessel provided the materials are compatable with the product being stored. In most cases HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) is your BEST choice.

Linear polyethylene tanks are rototationally molded in one piece, seamless construction. HDPE tanks can be used indoors or outdoors; UV Inhibitors are added to the resin before the vessel is molded. What are these plastic resins? Read about the poly tanks resins!

Advantages of tanks produced from rotationally molded polyethylene (PE) over tanks produced with FRP include: greater impact resistance, a homogeneous wall, better weatherability, a broader range of chemical resistance, and lower cost. Advantages over mild steel and stainless steel include: better stress-crack resistance in mobile applications due to stress-free construction, a broader range of chemical resistance, seamless wall construction, more economical site preparation and installation and a lower price in many cases. PE also does not dent.
