Case Studies

A selection of contracts completed by Niplast over the years, to provide an insight into the company's capabilities.

Niplast has supplied two storage tanks to Suretank Ltd, the world-leading manufacturer of CCUs (Cargo Carrying Units) for the Offshore Oil and Gas Industry. The tanks, to be used to store sodium bromide and hydrochloric acid in the Caribbean, were commissioned by the customer in polypropylene rather than their usual steel construction, due to the highly corrosive nature of these chemicals.

Niplast bulk storage tanks were originally installed at the NGF EUROPE Limited St Helens site in 1988 and the replacement tanks will continue to store latex solutions for the company, part of the NSG Group, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of glass products.

Liquids handling specialist, Niplast of Stockport has completed the design, supply and commissioning of six 20,000 litre thermoplastic storage tanks for Coates Lorilleux, one of the world's largest suppliers of specialist inks and services for offset litho, gravure and flexographic printing processes.

Specialist water treatment chemical manufacturer Houseman Limited, has taken delivery of five new chemical storage tanks from Niplast for its new £3m manufacturing facility at Wythenshawe, near Manchester. The new tanks provide bulk storage for Houseman's main raw liquid chemicals and are being used alongside two Niplast tanks supplied in 1983, which have themselves been relocated and re-commissioned.

Premier car care company, Autoglym has specified Niplast thermoplastic bulk tanks for the storage of process chemicals at its Letchworth site. Four UV-stabilised polypropylene tanks were supplied, each with a working capacity of up to 15 tonnes, and they were custom made to fit a specific site location, their tall, narrow profiles being made possible by Niplast's distinctive manufacturing process.

Bulk liquids storage specialist, Niplast of Stockport, has designed, manufactured and commissioned a customised 25,000 litre thermoplastic storage tank, complete with dedicated containment bund, for Rumenco of Burton on Trent, the UK market leader in the farm feed supplements.
