  Bulk Storage Facilities and Piping Systems

The most effective way to reduce your Quality, environmental and safety concerns with the storage and handling of raw chemicals & Dry Components is through proper design and usage of the correct construction materials for your storage and handling systems. The design, fabrication and installation of your primary storage vessels, piping/conveying systems and instrumentation by knowledgeable professionals will prevent a potential problems and provide for a safe operation.



Bulk Storage Tanks

LESSCO designs atmospheric and pressure storage tanks to meet API & ASME codes. We have designed tank systems ranging in size from 200 to 40,000 gallons. The materials of construction for these tanks have included carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminum. For corrosive and special applications, tanks are lined with natural rubber, chlorobutyl rubber, Teflon, and other corrosive resistant materials.

Tank and process ventilation systems, inventory control, leak detection monitoring and warning systems are all a part of LESSCO's design capabilities for bulk storage facilities, piping systems, and secondary containment.
