With the addition of low profile 2,200 litre and 2,800 litre Industrial Storage tanks to our established range of both 1.5SG and 2.0SG tanks we can now offer 54 Industrial Tanks suitable for a wide variety of chemicals and uses across the whole spectrum of businesses within the manufacturing sector. Available in sizes from 150 litres up to 30,000 litres and wall thicknesses designed for containment of liquids up to 1.5SG and from 1.5SG to 2.0SG, we are also able to offer individual customisation to meet clients’ specific needs such as additional bulkheads, welded flanges and more.
Produced using the latest rotationally moulded technologies and UV-stabilised polyethylene granules ensures our tanks are strong, durable and free from corrosion. The tanks are 100% rustproof and are manufactured by us at our factory in Lincolnshire. They are designed with a smooth interior to resist the growth of algae and bacteria and are available in a variety of colours with the black tanks all being WRAS approved (supplied with a Bye Law 30 kit and optional AB Airgap fitted at time of manufacture).
The tanks are suitable for the storage of the following chemicals: Ferric Chloride, Caustic Soda, ‘AUS-40 urea solution (AdBlue), Acetic Acid, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Hydroxide and Chlorine. The 2.0SG tank allows any of the above chemicals to be stored at a constant temperature of up to 40°C.
Popular uses include the primary treatment and clarification of liquids, sludge handling and treatment of dirty water, dissolved air floatation tanks, nutrient removal systems, aerobic/anaerobic digestion tanks, chemical and biological treatment tanks, bio-diesel tanks and chemical storage tanks. They are widely used in the brewing and food industry and have applications across the construction and civil engineering sectors.
Where conventional polyethylene tanks are not considered suitable, customers wishing to store or treat more aggressive chemicals should consider using our Cross Link Chemical Tanks (XLPE) suitable for liquids up to a temperature of 70°C or our Polyvinylidene Fluoride Tanks (PVDF). Polyvinylidene Fluoride tanks are designed to provide outstanding chemical resistance at room and high temperature, low permeability to hydrocarbons, high rigidity and excellent flame retardation. They are used extensively in the chemical, semi-conductor, medical and defence industries.

At Endurachem, as one of the UK’s leaders in the field of rotationally moulded high specification polyethylene tanks, we are continually striving to come up with innovative solutions and new products on behalf of the market sectors we serve.
Whilst Ferric Chloride and Caustic Soda are widely used across many industrial and chemical environments one of the main users of these chemicals are those involved in the purification and/or treatment of water.
Geographically the world’s largest user of Ferric Chloride (FeCl3) is Western Europe where, mainly due to European legislation regarding clean water standards, it is used to remove impurities in water and also in waste water treatment where it is one of the few chemicals that can remove odours. Ferric Chloride causes flocculation of small particles within water which can then be removed.
Endurachem’s 1.5SG WRAS approved Industrial Tanks and Bunded Tanks are an ideal storage solution for Ferric Chloride. Additionally our large range of Cone Tanks (250 litre to 30,000 litre capacities) with a variety of angled cones, are designed to allow flocculation and the easy removal of sediment.
We have selected a number of vertical 1.5SG Industrial Tanks, closed top Bunded Tanks and Chemical Dosing Tanks as suitable storage vessels for Caustic Soda. This inorganic compound begins to crystalise at a temperature of +7°C so it is important to maintain a storage temperature above this level so frequently heating coils are installed within tanks to facilitate this. Dependent upon the location of the storage vessel and the external ambient temperature, this method of temperature regulation can prove costly.
Endurachem’s Bunded and Chemical Dosing Tanks, suitable for Caustic Soda storage, can be supplied with a layer of outer insulation to either reduce the amount of internal temperature regulation required or remove the need for it completely (having full regard to the insulation performance criteria).
Within the chemical and water treatment sectors in particular, there is an increased demand for the storage of more aggressive chemicals, ranging in temperature from ambient up to 70°C and it is accepted that conventional polyethylene tanks are not suitable to meet this new challenge. In the past, expensive steel tanks or costly layered plastic tanks were the only option but now, with the introduction of Cross Link Polymer Tanks (XLPE), a more cost effective solution is available.
For a polymer tank with an even higher performance than XLPE, our recently introduced Polyvinylidene Fluoride Tanks (PVDF) are specifically designed for harsh chemical or high temperature environments where a critical performance specification must be met. PVDF is inert to many aggressive acids and bases up to 140°C and is resistant to abrasion. One of the many benefits of all of our rotationally moulded, one piece, polymer tanks, particularly when compared to steel tanks, is their cost, weight and ease of installation.

Following the success of our recently released range of Crosslinked Polymer Tanks (XLPE) which are ideally suited to the requirements of the chemical and water treatment sectors, Endurachem, in co-operation with Matrix Polymers, has launched a range of Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) tanks.
PVDF tanks are designed to provide outstanding chemical resistance at room and high temperature, low permeability to hydrocarbons, high rigidity and excellent flame retardation. They are used extensively in the chemical, semi-conductor, automotive, electronics, telecommunications, medical, aerospace and defence industries. Additionally they are designed for use as processing tanks, water treatment tanks and in ultrapure water applications.
Endurachem’s PVDF tanks are constructed using Matrix Polymer’s Revolve 2850 Fluoropolymer and the latest in seamless, rotationally moulded technology which guarantees strength, impact resistance and durability.
A fluoropolymer is a polymer that contains molecules of carbon and fluorine which is a high performance plastic material used in either harsh chemical or high temperature environments where a critical performance specification must be met. PVDF is inert to many aggressive acids and bases up to 140°C and is resistant to abrasion.
The benefit of using PVDF tanks as opposed to steel tanks is the combination of the rapid and easy installation of the tank and cost factors involved. PVDF tanks are substantially lighter, easier to handle and cheaper to manufacture than steel tanks.
Our range of 22 PVDF tanks comes in 21 sizes from 250 litres up to 10,000 litres and includes vertical, chemical dosing and closed top cone (conical bottom) tanks.

Enduratank is pleased to announce that they are now able to offer customers tailor made base frames to suit their specific requirements. A galvanised metal base designed to accommodate our range of vertical water tanks is ideally suited for situations where the tank is required for temporary storage use only, such as a construction site. The metal base fully supports the tank and negates the need to construct a solid base as normally recommended for permanent static tank installations. Other possible uses are for temporary events and remote site workers accommodation.
In addition to our Cone Bottom Tanks which are already supplied with support frames, it is on occasion, desirable to raise the height above the ground of vertical tanks particularly with regards to Liquid Fertiliser Tanks and Molasses Tanks. Raising a liquid fertiliser tank provides an easier method of filling Sprayer Tanks. A raised platform for your tank may also provide a solution where the ground level is not suitable for a fixed base.
Whatever your specific requirements, why not talk to our Technical Team who will be able to advise you as to your options and how we may be able to assist?
With an increased demand for the storage of more aggressive chemicals, ranging in temperature from ambient up to 70°C, it has become accepted that conventional polyethylene tanks are not suitable to meet this new challenge and expensive and heavy steel tanks or costly layered plastic tanks are the only option within the UK. That is, until now.
In association with Matrix Polymers of Northamptonshire, Endurachem, a family owned and operated quality assured company with a wealth of experience in the design and manufacture of rotationally moulded polyethylene storage and processing tanks, have introduced a range of five cross linked Vertical Tanks in sizes from 1250 litres up to 10000 litres. These tanks are constructed using Revolve XL400 which is a cross link polyethylene of exceptional toughness and long term physical properties.
Cross link polyethylene, X-PE, is a polyethylene material containing additives, usually peroxide based which, when reaching an activation temperature during manufacture, undergo a chemical reaction which causes strong chemical bonds (cross links) to form. These chemical bonds significantly alter the nature of the material. The material changes from being a thermoplastic into a thermosetting resin with the consequent mechanical and physical properties being far better than any conventional linear low density polyethylene.
The impact performance of the XL400 (see below graph) is far superior to conventional polyethylene making the tank more resistant and extremely tough during its operating life. An added advantage over steel tanks is that size for size Revolve XL400 are a quarter of the weight thus ensuring easier transportation, handling and installation.

What is the definition of flocculation?
In simple terms, flocculation is the process by which individual solid particles in liquid clot together into bigger particles known as ‘clots’ or ‘flocs’ which can then be separated off to leave a cleaner and clearer liquid behind.
What is flocculation used for?
Conventional coagulation, flocculation or sedimentation practices are essential pre-treatments for a range of water purification systems. Flocculent chemicals are used in water treatment processes for removal of unwanted solids and contamination to produce cleaner, safer and potentially drinkable water. Other applications include sewage treatment, cheese production, and brewing. It is also used in surface and physical chemistry, biology, and civil engineering.
What are the processes in flocculation?
Flocculation, or sometimes referred to as clarification, consists of four distinctive processes – coagulation, flash mixing, flocculation, and clarification. Sufficient time and velocity are necessary to maximise the effectiveness of the flocculent so that the individual parts come together.
Enduratank offer a complete clarification tank design service based on your system requirements. As manufacturers of polyethylene cone tanks, we have in-house CAD engineers who can help you create bespoke solutions or, if you’re looking for a more standard system, we hold large stocks for quick delivery nationwide.
