Above Ground Storage Tank Basics
An above ground storage tank can be made of metal, plastic, or fiberglass for the purpose of storing liquids. Various industries use above ground tanks to store substances that range from water to crude oil to processing chemicals to molasses. An above ground tank can range in size from 50 gallons up to multiple millions of gallons. With their wide use among various industries, above ground storage tanks are truly the backbone of industry in our country and beyond.
By enlarge, most above ground storage tanks are made of steel and built to the API 650 Standard. Developed and published by the American Petroleum Institute (API), this standard sets out requirements for the design and fabrication of an above ground steel tank with safety in mind. While the API 650 Standard is required for the petroleum industry, it has become the international standard for certain sizes of above ground storage tanks.
With the variety of sizes and materials for above ground tank construction, you need to determine which tank construction company fits your tank needs.

Tanks Designed for Your Needs
A particular design of an AST will not work for every situation. First, conditions such as earthquake zones, high winds, and extreme rainfall require design modifications to make the AST safe for operation and to prevent any potential damage to the tank from the extremes the weather may pose. Second, ASTs in different industries require various types of configurations for valves, roofs, and piping based on the product stored. The tank design for an above ground fertilizer tank will not work for what is needed for an asphalt tank.
The design of the tank components is critical, but so is the placement of the tank. Heartland Tank Companies will work with you, using its decades of experience, to determine the best location of the tank. Considerations in such decisions are logistics of loading and unloading the tanks, logistics of the operation of the facility in general, and potential future facility expansion.
