CST Industries Offers TecTank FP for Dry Bulk Storage


CST Storage TecTank FPBuilding on a more than 100-year legacy as one of the world’s leading bolted steel tank, silo and aluminum dome manufacturers, CST Industries expanded its product portfolio with TecTank FP, a jackable flat-panel bolted tank for the dry bulk marketplace.

TecTank FP was designed based on the heritage of designs from Peabody TecTank, Columbian Steel Tank and Columbian TecTank. With more than 350,000 tanks in 125 countries performing in thousands of applications, no other company can match CST’s dry bulk tank design, manufacturing and construction experience, according to the company.

With the addition of TecTank FP, CST said it is the only tank manufacturer in the world to provide a flat-panel, jack-built tank, a chime panel scaffold built tank and factory welded tank designs, all capable of safely and economically being installed on every diverse site imaginable. CST is no longer limited to one or two design styles or erection methods and can now fulfill needs and commitments as demanded by the market.

Expansive engineering capability and design experience make CST tank systems the best option to contain dry bulk materials. Its next generation factory-applied coating system enhances the performance of each storage tank, and its component design flexibility from hopper to skirts to structural support are “incomparable in the industry,” the company stated.
