Tank Design

Crossair tanks are designed using latest generation CAD techniques, and constructed using proprietary tools and processes. These techniques and programmable systems ensure full strength at all bend points, precise distribution of sidewall stresses, and the highest integrity at corners and seams. In addition to our standard tank series, we provide customized tanks to address your specific needs and space limitations. We can design tanks in rectangular, circular, and non-standard configurations.

At Crossair, we understand the importance of quick, easy access, and the need seamless integration with existing plant equipment and work flow. Crossair works with your production, product management and maintenance staff on you tank design or tank farm, so that you get exactly what you need and want.

Tanks and Full-Service Tank Installation

We can supply your tank unit alone or provide a full-service installation, complete with material handling, ducting, piping, pumps, and agitation, and/or instrumentation. Crossair offers a broad range of tank covers, fume hoods, scrubber exhaust systems and blowers, and high efficiency scrubbers. Using Crossair as a single-source supplier and service provider allows you to reap maximum cost savings..

Options for Tank Design and Fabrication

Crossair provides process tanks in a range of materials, from polyethylene, PVDF, PE, CPVC, and stainless steel, in addition to polypropylene. Polypropylene is very resilient and is well suited to manufacturing and process environments where impact can occur from parts handling devices, fork trucks, and hoists and other material handling. If damage occurs, it is easily repaired on-site, without interrupting service. Polypro is the lightest in weight of any thermoplastic. It is exceptionally resistant to strong acids – even at high temperatures – and is also highly resistant to alkalis and oxidizers. It can be welded and thermoformed, and has a high strength to weight ratio. Polypropylene is easy to fabricate, economical, and has a long track record of success for the manufacture of tanks, tank hoods, ducting and workstations, for industrial and laboratory environments.
