Freeze Protection for Chemical Injection Tanks

A Poly-Mart Chemical Injection TankAs versatile as chemical injection tanks are, they’re no match for cold weather. How do you protect your temperature-sensitive liquids from freezing?

Too Cold

The big poly storage tanks you see strewn all over oil fields and water treatment plants are truly helpful when it comes to storing and accessing the valuable liquids they hold. You may have noticed something else about them: they’re plastic. As such, they have no insulating qualities.

Too Complex

Few, if any, plastic tanks have their own individual internal heater. Self-regulating tanks are extremely expensive, and when break downs happen, you have to replace the entire tank.

Chemical Injection Tanks and Freeze Protection

Maybe you’re thinking: so what? Lack of insulation doesn’t really matter for the warm part of the year. But for the cold parts of the year, it definitely does. Come winter and frozen tanks become a huge pain. Chemical injection tanks are commonly used to maintain flow, to reduce corrosion, and to improve operations associated with the treatment of fluid sources. If your tank freezes, all of these important functions freeze too.
