From Grain Systems
SCAFCO designs and manufactures water tank systems in 11 different diameters (6' to 36') and wall heights up to 14 feet, with capacities in excess of 100,000 gallons.Our high-quality galvanized steel tank exteriors get the proven protection of hot-dipped zinc coating. Water tanks have a flexible liner. The liner is suspended inside the water tank, forming a watertight membrane. This means that stored water never contacts the tank's steel surface. Galvanized steel tank materials and construction minimize corrosion levels and the need for frequent maintenance.
Standard on every SCAFCO water tank (12' (3.66m) and larger) is a man-sized inspection hatch at the eave. This rain-tight hatch is factory-installed with a latch and is located on one of the
Galvanized Sidewall Staves
All steel tank components are hot- dipped in zinc for high corrosion resistance. SCAFCO's unique 42 and 2/3' galvanized steel side-wall staves are pre-punched with a single-stroke operation, assuring accurate hole alignment. Sheets are precision roll-formed from high-strength steel.
Center Hatch Cap
SCAFCO's unique center hatch cap make visible inspection and inner access simple and easy. Water tanks 6' through 24' in diameter have a handy 2' hatch; those 27' and larger have a 3' hatch.
Great Roof Systems
SCAFCO roof panels provide outstanding load-carrying characteristics and weatherability. Steel tank roofs bolt together rapidly at the jobsite. Each panel is securely attached to side-wall staves. Optional roof dams to collect rain water are available.
Rapid Field Assembly
Using jacks enables water tank assembly at ground level.
The liner is suspended inside the water tank to form a water-tight membrane. Water never contacts the tank's steel surface.
Heavy-Duty Anchor Systems
Contoured to match sheet corrugations, sturdy anchor clips secure bottom ring to foundation. The anchor clips are designed to resist horizontal loads. Seismic anchors are also available.
Roof Ladder Systems
SCAFCO provides a complete roof ladder system with every water tank over 9' in diameter. The roof ladder includes steel steps bolted to the roof for access to the center hatch cap. Safety steps attach to every other roof panel around the peak, providing sure footing. Optional sidewall ladders are available.
Every SCAFCO water tank is furnished with heat-treated SAE grade 8.2 (DIN 10.9) bolts. All exposed bolts are coated with a patented protective system that lasts five times longer than conventional zinc-plating. This process assures durability under harsh weather conditions. Polyethylene washers seal roof and side-walls against moisture penetration.
