High and mighty - new tanks installed at Christeyns HQ

Bradford based Christeyns UK has successfully completed the installation of new holding tanks with the help of chemical storage specialist Chem Resist. The project to replace four chemical storage tanks and add one new 100,000 litre water tank was put in motion in late summer last year. To support customer and market growth, the new tanks needed to provide increased storage capacity, but with limited space at the Bradford site, the new tanks had to sit within the same footprint.

Christeyns worked with Chem Resist, a specialist manufacturer of thermoplastic process plant and chemical storage tanks, which came up with the ideal solution - building tall.

Using Chem Resist’s advanced spiral-winding manufacturing methods, the four replacement tanks were each made to a height of around nine meters, providing Christeyns with over 60% increased capacity totalling almost 240,000 litres across the four tanks. The tank design was also improved with the inclusion of an integrated bund and comprehensive steelwork, thus providing protection and safety for the environment and workers.
