The ZipaTank™ has a fully modular construction. All components of the ZipaTank™ are designed so they will fit into a standard 40 foot shipping container, reducing the necessity for special transportation arrangements to a client's site.
No special tools are required for construction of your ZipaTank™, and little or no site welding or other skilled labour is necessary during construction. All joining of tank panels is done using a simple, robust mechanical join allowing assembly with unskilled labour.
Assembly follows a top down approach, with all assembly carried out at ground level. Scaffolding and working at heights is not required for assembly of the ZipaTank™.
Low Cost and Reduced Installation Times
The ZipaTank™ system will reduce the cost of your slurry tank compared to a conventional welded tank by up to 50%. Installation of ZipaTank™ can be completed and operational within 1-2 weeks from delivery of materials to site, compared with upwards of 3 months for site welded tanks. The system is also very simple to use, with little or no welding required in the construction of the tank, so minimal skilled labour is required.
ZipaTank™ designs are standardised to minimise the amount of engineering required for each application. This results in a reduced cost, as well as a shorter fabrication time.
The ZipaTank™ is designed for easy assembly as well as easy disassembly. ZipaTank™ can be taken apart for relocation in a matter of days.
Coatings and Linings
One of the benefits of ZipaTank™ construction is that it allows fabrication of each component of the tank under factory controlled conditions. This allows the designer to use lower cost lined components in place of more expensive alloy steels without the loss in quality often associated with installation of lined systems at remote sites.
The tank panels and all internal surfaces can be lined internally or externally with a range of pailts, polyurethanes, rubber or GRP/FRP materials, depending on the nature of the tank contents. These linings are cured under precisely controlled conditions at the point of fabrication, to ensure a reliable and robust lining is achieved.
