NONMETALLIC TANK/PUMP SYSTEMS

For Collection, Transfer or Treatment of Corrosive Process and Waste Liquids

STANDARD OR CUSTOMIZED SYSTEMS
STATIONARY OR MOBILE MODELS
TANKS FROM 60 TO 5,000 GALLONS

Non Metallic, Tank Systems, Pump Systems
Duplex pump/tank system with two Sump-Gard® vertical pumps, rising rod float controls, instrumentation, and control panel.

Non Metallic, Tank Systems, Pump Systems
Mobile tank/pump system with self-priming Flex-i-liner® rotary pump for collecting corrosive wastes from multiple sites.

These user friendly tank/pump systems with single or double wall tank construction, and with all fluid contact components made of chemically inert nonmetallic materials, are recommended for chemical processing, plating, metal finishing, waste treatment, pollution control or other services which require the collection, transfer, neutralization or treatment of corrosive, abrasive, hazardous or ultrapure fluids.

Vanton manually operated or completely automated systems are available in square, rectangular or cylindrical configuration, in standard or customized design and in your choice of thermoplastic, thermoset or plastic-lined metal tanks. They can be equipped with horizontal centrifugal, vertical sump or rotary peristaltic thermoplastic pumps made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC), polypropylene (PP) polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) or ethylene chloro-trifluoroethylene (ECTFE). The systems can be furnished with associated piping and instrumentation made of these or other engineered plastics inert to the fluids being handled.

Self-contained, nonmetallic automated pH neutralization systems

To help municipalities and industrial plants respond to government regulations which require that acids, alkalis, salts and contaminated waste fluids be neutralized before discharge into public waters, Vanton has developed these self-contained nonmetallic neutralization systems that automatically monitor the pH and control the chemical additions required for neutralizing the effluents. All components, including the sump and metering pumps, the tank, valves, piping and controls in contact with the fluids are made of chemically inert plastics. The typical system shown here requires only electrical and piping hook-up to be fully operable.

SPECIFICATIONS

  1. Standard or customized thermoplastic, thermoset or plastic lined metal tanks to be supplied with single or multiple thermoplastic pumps and designated instrumentation and controls.
  2. Plastic tank joints to be hot gas welded to provide continuous leak-proof, easy to clean seams.  The design should avoid recesses or blind areas where chemicals might lodge and be difficult to flush. Elastometric sealing between tank cover and tank provides further insurance against leakage and emissions.
  3. Pump casings and impellers in contact with the fluids to be handled must be furnished in solid (not lined), virgin, homogeneous thermoplastics selected for the indicated service conditions. Designs must assure that no metal components will be in fluid contact. The steel shaft is to be isolated from the liquid by a heavy sectioned thermoplastic sleeve.
  4. When packaged tank/pump systems are specified, they are to be user-ready, requiring only electrical and piping hook-up to be completely operable.
  5. Double wall tanks to have built-in leak detection devices and sensors when required, linked to visual and audible alarms.
  6. Automated systems, where required, to include liquid level controls, visual and audible signal devices, analog and digital display flow meters, flow totalizers, pH controllers and other instrumentation selected for the indicated service conditions.
