CST Industries, Inc., brings together a century long legacy of leadership with forward looking and proactive product development initiatives to provide the marketplace with a continual stream of product and application innovations. As inventors of many of the sectional steel tank features in the late 1800’s, CST today continues to focus on continually improving products and expanding their application range to better serve industrial, commercial, agriculture and municipal operations worldwide. CST’s newly expanded and re-engineered PetroTec™ petroleum tank product line is one example of these efforts.
As originators of sectional steel tanks for petroleum storage in 1916, one of CST’s forefather companies - Columbian Steel Tank Company - took the lead in the field of bolted tanks. Throughout the 1900’s, Columbian was at the forefront of bolted tank innovation and development. In 1943, the company was awarded the US Governments Army-Navy Production Excellence Award, the forerunner to today’s US Department of Commerce prestigious “E” Award, for its dynamic support of the World War II effort.
When it comes to petroleum products storage, no other tank manufacturer can compete with the decades of experience and thousands of successful installations of CST Industries. Today, the company is the only certified API 12B tank manufacturer in the world.
When it comes to the storage tank requirements of Australia’s mining and resources sector, CST’s capabilities are unrivalled. The modular tank components fit together precisely and quickly every time without the field expense of welding crews and costly tools. In size ranges from 100 barrels to 40,000 barrels, all tank parts are packaged unassembled in compact kits, allowing economical shipping anywhere, especially remote locations. PetroTec™ bolted steel tanks are completely coated inside and out with an electrostatically applied powder epoxy under factory controlled conditions. PetroTec’s Trico Bond EP is a next generation modified epoxy powder system, which gives excellent corrosion resistance and immersion performance even when storing caustic acids, brines and sours crude. This exceptional coating system cannot be matched by field applied systems.
PetroTec™ engineers have working knowledge of the oil industry and its standards, and are well equipped to build the best value tank on the market with the lowest cost-per-unit volume stored. With over 150,000 tanks in 125 countries performing in thousands of applications, no other company can match CST’s design, manufacturing and construction experience.
In a recent development for CST in Australia, service providers for the design and construction of bulk fuel storage, Fuel Tank and Pipe Pty Ltd, recently signed a cooperation agreement with CST Industries for the provision of the range of bolted, sectional storage tanks to the mining and resources sector in Australia.
The contract scope is to provide a wide range of low cost, high performance sectional storage tanks for a variety of applications for diesel storage, lubricant storage, waste water, fire water and process tanks.
