The perspectives are a bit different for the manufacturer of custom storage tanks and the buyer of custom storage tanks, although in the end they both want the same thing; a quality product that was worth the money it was paid for with. There are however details on both sides of the purchase that need to be kept in mind, and these priorities may vary during the process. That is why as a buyer of a storage tank should always know exactly what one wants and the manufacturer should always know what is necessary to make it.
A custom storage tank design will usually begin with the material. Because stainless steel tanks are the most popular on the market since they boast so many positive characteristics, it is a popular choice. Other plastic and metal materials are also used, although they may not compare to both the price, strength and corrosion resistance of stainless steel. Once the material has been decided, dimensions are the next big issue. For a buyer, a main concern is knowing exactly how much space they have available for their new stainless steel storage tank. Since industrial setting such as chemical plants, agricultural facilities, pharmaceutical manufacturers and many more utilize custom storage tanks, the dimensions of a space can vary tremendously. Each of those industries also has very different needs as far as size, tank thickness and accessibility goes too.
For the manufacturer of a custom storage tank, being efficient is the top priority. Not only do they want their customers to be completely satisfied with the cost of the storage tank as well as the quality, but they also want to make sure they wasted as little material as possible so that their costs don’t have to rise. That is why they need to spend the time to know exactly what the customer wants, so that their time is spent well and the ss tank is manufactured on schedule for the exact amount they planned for.
