Storage tank is something, which is used to hold or store liquids or compressed gas. Artificial lakes or ponds can be termed as storage tanks as well. These can also be called artificial containers. These are found in different shapes as well. The design of the tank is chosen based on the purpose for which it would be used. These can be horizontally or vertically cylindrical. These are found to have either open or close top. The bottoms are found in the shapes of slope, cone, dish, or flat. However, the most common design is rounded corners and vertical cylindrical shape.

In order to withstand the hydrostatically induced hydraulic pressure liquid stored in the container, the above-mentioned particular shape is used. The main purpose of using a particular type of container is to ensure that it handles the pressure of the liquid inside properly so that no problem is caused. Special tankers are used to move these containers and tanks from one place to another. The handling is done in the most careful way so that there is no chance of seeping or spilling of liquid and evaporation of gas. Most of the tanks are covered with containment dike in order to ensure that even if leakage is caused, it can be contained successfully.

Some storage tanks are there that needs additional floating roofs. The roof is used to maintain a balancing act since the liquid inside rises and falls during transportation. It is also beneficial to maintain the total vapor space present above the level of the liquid. It is also considered as a measure to prevent pollution and ensure safety. When you buy or hire an oil container ensure that it is in the perfect condition in order to avoid any kind of mishap. Different types of storage tanks include DISPATCH, COT, PIT, UTILITIES, OSBL, and ISBL.
