Epoxy Coated Steel Tank

The Global market for the epoxy coated product is growing exponentially and we would like you to share in this growth. Factory and Manufacturing All installation materials are locally sourced and converted in our factory into a product that is aesthetically pleasing to the eye, yet offers unsurpassed quality and performance for the end user. Aquadam holds stock of the Future Tank and the Smart Tank up to 12 metres in diameter enabling us to deliver even faster, streamline the process and improve on your expectations.

Impact Durability

Tougher than traditional steel tank options.

The Rhino Tank is a tough bolted steel tank covered with a thermally bonded epoxy coating for higher impact durability.
Highly corrosion and chemical-resistant, this tank is virtually resilient to on-site damage and exceeds coating requirements.

The Rhino Tank is available in a range of colours with no additional surcharge in green, desert sand, blue, red, brown.

Epoxy Coating

The epoxy coating provides a highly resistant coating to the Rhino Tank panels. The epoxy coating is electro-statically applied and thermally bonded in a 2-coat process to the steel panels. This is a DuPont dry powder coating that is then fused to the tank's surface at a temperature of approximately 280°C. The DuPont powder coating is available in virtually every colour, and once applied it is fused for life and never needs repainting. This process provides the most durable and resistant coating possible. All products are then tested for discontinuities and thickness prior to dispatch. Aquadam guarantees that only 100% defect free panels leave the factory.

The DuPont coating used on Rhino Tanks is the same as that used in chemical and industrial piping applications, and as such it is tougher than Zinc/Aluminum coatings and is exceptionally resilient to on site damage.

Because the coating system is electro-statically charged, all internal bolt holes and sheet edges are thoroughly coated for maximum protection. The coating is highly resilient to chipping, cracking or flaking off, even when bolts are being tightened during installation.

Highly Versatile

The Rhino Tank is well suited for storing a wide variety of liquid chemicals, with a pH suitability of 2-11 and temperatures of up to 60°C. Because the Rhino Tank is UV-stabilized, these tanks are suitable for temperate, humid and even abrasive desert conditions. The Rhino Tank is suited for a wide variety of storage requirements; from potable water, municipal sludge, anaerobic digestion, demineralized water and many more applications.

A full range of optional extras is available, including roofing, access ladders, staircases, rest and working platforms and walkways.
