Polyethylene horizontal tanks are primarily used for transport, nursing, or stationary storage. Because they have superior mechanical properties, high stiffness, excellent low temperature impact strength, and outstanding environmental stress crack resistance, they stand up well in tough environments.

Horizontal tanks have a high resistance to both physical and chemical attack. This makes them excellent containment vessels for a wide range of diverse contents from aggressive corrosive chemicals to food products. Some typical contents are industrial chemicals, liquid fertilizers, potable water, and animal feeds.

Horizontal leg tanks have molded-in legs to help reduce sloshing and to permit the tank to be secured to its base platform or truck bed. Whether using the tank in a stationary position or for transport, full-bottom support and the appropriate bands are required to validate the warranty and ensure that the tank retains its shape and integrity.


The overall general toughness and excellent chemical resistance of polyethylene to a wide array of wet and dry industrial chemicals and food products makes it ideally suited for storage tanks. Dura-Cast horizontal loaf tanks are made with FDA-compliant UV-stabilized polyethylene. They comply with U.S. Food & Drug Administration regulation 21CFR 177.1520 (1) 3.1 and 3.2 for storage of potable water. This permits it to be used as an article that can be in contact with potable water or food products.

Horizontal loaf tanks can be used indoors or outdoors. Because the resin is UV-stabilized, it will not breakdown under harsh outdoor weather conditions or under prolonged exposure to fluorescent lights. The natural opaqueness of polyethylene permits easy viewing of content levels.
