Pipeline Sump Tanks

Xerxes corrosion resistant tanks are increasingly being specified for a variety of oil and gas industry applications. As the North American pipeline infrastructure and related facilities continues to expand, owners and their design engineering firms are using Xerxes storage tanks for the collection of liquids that come from routine maintenance practices or as emergency spill collection. A Xerxes sump tank is the ideal choice for these corrosive environments.

Xerxes pipeline sump tanks offer the following advantages:

  • Rib Design – with the Xerxes design, the ribs are fabricated directly into the tank cylinder.
  • Parabeam Constuction – Parabeam enhances the overall structural integrity by creating a bond between the primary and secondary cylinder walls, while providing a free-flowing interstitial space for monitoring capabilities.
  • UL-Listed – Xerxes double-wall tanks are UL-tested and UL-listed.
  • TRUCHEK Continuous Monitoring – When a Xerxes double-wall tank is ordered with the TRUCHEK option, the interstice between the two tank walls is filled at the factory with calcium-chloride fluid that also partially fills a reservoir, creating a hydrostatic pressure throughout the interstice space.
