Industrial Water Storage Tanks


Water storage is a critical component in various industrial applications. As industries grow and their water needs evolve, selecting the appropriate storage solution becomes increasingly important. Among the numerous options available, sectional tanks are a superior choice for industrial water storage tanks. This article discusses the advantages of sectional water tanks, with a particular emphasis on the KIWA Approval we have for our range. It showcases why this certification is a hallmark of quality and reliability in the industry.

Understanding Industrial Water Storage Tanks

Industrial water storage tanks are designed to hold large volumes of water for various applications, ranging from process water and fire suppression to potable water supply. The demands on these tanks require them to be robust, durable, and compliant with stringent regulatory standards.

The Superiority of Sectional Tanks

Sectional tanks are constructed from modular panels, typically made of materials such as GRP (Glass-Reinforced Plastic), stainless steel, or other high-performance composites. Tricel manufactures a range of high-quality GRP sectional water tanks. These GRP panels are assembled on-site, making sectional tanks highly versatile and adaptable to different spatial constraints and capacity requirements.

Our sectional water tanks can hold both potable and non-potable water and are suitable for internal and external applications. They can withstand extreme weather conditions. These tanks can be insulated—with a standard 38mm insulation thickness, which can be increased to 50mm depending on your needs—or uninsulated (which is used for storing water for non-wholesome applications).

Our sectional tanks can be provided with a screened vent, allowing for ventilation, an access hatch for maintenance, and raised float valve housing to allow for you to increase the useable water volume, along with tank divisions, ladders and other connections and valves.

Here’s why sectional tanks are often the preferred choice for industrial projects:

  1. Customisability and Scalability

Sectional tanks can be customised to meet specific size and capacity requirements. Their modular design allows for easy expansion or modification, catering to the changing needs of industrial operations. This flexibility ensures that industries do not outgrow their water storage solutions.

  1. Ease of Transportation and Installation

The modular nature of sectional tanks means they can be palletised, transported and assembled on-site, making them ideal for locations with limited access or space. This not only simplifies logistics but also reduces installation time and costs.

  1. Durability and Maintenance

Constructed from high-quality materials, sectional tanks are built to withstand harsh environmental conditions and chemical exposure. GRP, in particular, is known for its corrosion resistance and long lifespan, ensuring that the tanks remain operational for decades with minimal maintenance.

Supplying the Biggest Projects

With vast experience, we have completed various projects across different industries. No project is too big or complicated for us at Tricel. Every project is different, and we have installed GRP sectional water tanks where space was restricted to a minimum and other structural factors were a concern.

What is KIWA Approval?

KIWA is a leading testing, inspection, and certification organisation operating in over 40 countries worldwide. Its primary aim is to help businesses and organisations ensure that their products and services meet the relevant quality, safety, and environmental standards.

Compliance with regulatory standards is crucial when it comes to industrial water storage. KIWA approval signifies adherence to the highest standards of quality and safety for water systems and components. At Tricel, our GRP Sectional Hot Press water tanks are compliant with Regulation 4(1)a through KIWA.

Here’s why KIWA approval is essential for sectional tanks:

Ensuring Potable Water Safety

Regulation 4(1)a of the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999 mandates that any fittings used in public water supplies must not cause water contamination. KIWA approval ensures that sectional tanks are constructed from materials that do not leach harmful substances into the water, making them safe for storing potable water.


Obtaining KIWA approval means that the tanks comply with all relevant legal standards, ensuring they meet the rigorous requirements of water authorities. This compliance is a legal necessity and a testament to the product’s quality and reliability.


Sectional tanks with KIWA certification are recognised for their superior quality and performance. This certification enhances the credibility of the tanks in the market, providing assurance to industrial customers that they are investing in a top-tier water storage solution.

The Optimal Solution for Industrial Projects

In conclusion, sectional tanks are the ideal industrial water storage solution. Their customisability, ease of transportation and installation, and durability make them an ideal choice for various industrial applications. The added advantage of our KIWA Approval underscores their safety and compliance with the highest standards, ensuring that industries can trust these tanks for their critical water storage needs.
