Design and Engineering of T BAILEY INC.’s Bulk Storage Tanks

Whether we are building pre-engineered bulk storage tanks or designing from scratch, our team and partner engineers can handle all the preliminary planning. We use CAD modeling to conduct performance and strength calculations and provide cost recommendations. All tanks up to 20’ wide and 20’ tall may be built in our state-of-the-art facility depending on shipping constraints. For larger tanks, we fabricate pieces or subassemblies in our shop and put them together on-site.

T BAILEY, INC. Follows Health, Safety, and Environmental Protocols

We customize site-specific safety and health plans for every project. We have received several prestigious awards for best safety performance in the industry. 

 

All team members undergo our Health, Safety, and Environmental Program, to ensure best practices. Our program includes:

  • Safety and health training.
  • Job Hazard Analysis.
  • Knowledge assessment tests.
  • Periodic inspections.
  • Auditing.
  • Recertification to comply with OSHA and other regulatory agencies.

Our Bulk Storage Tank Fabrication Process

Step #1: After receiving the raw steel plate, we check every piece for quality and integrity.

Step #2: The steel is cut, beveled, and rolled into pieces that fit together to produce the correct diameter and height.

Step #3: The sections are welded together, either in our fabrication facility, or field erected on the job site if the tank is larger than 20’x20’

Step #4: For thick steel walls, heat treatment and stress relieving ensure integrity.

Step #5: Finally, the tank is blasted, primed, and coated to produce the final product.
