Types of water tank

Choosing water tank is very important factor during construction. Because if water tank is non-corrosion resistance then water is vulnerable to bacteria, viruses, algae, pH in water level changes and water may be accumulated by minerals and gas which cause side effects to human beings.

There are different types of water tank available namely LDPE, HDPE

LDPE (Low-density polyethylene) water tank has lower tensile strength and resilience is higher, since molecules are less tightly packed its density is lower this result in breakage. LDPE is not reactive at room temperature, so should be used at temperatures up to 95° Celsius for short periods and at 80° Celsius continuously.  LDPE contains the chemical elements carbon and hydrogen. LDPE is excellent resistance to dilute acid, dilute alkalis and good resistance to oils and greases, Alcohols, and poor resistance to Aliphatic Hydrocarbons, Aromatic Hydrocarbons, and Halogenated Hydrocarbons.

Whereas, HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) tank is corrosion resistance, highly durable, impact resistant, weather resistant, lightweight, maintenance free.  HDPE tank can be used for storing chemicals, drinking water. It is used in both small and medium scale industries for storing chemicals.

Because of these features HDPE is more preferable than LDPE.
