Maximum Tank Capacity Within Available Space

  • BS EN 12573 – PART 3 & EN 13067
  • Internal sloping base option available
  • Integral frost protection systems

NIPLAST® rectangular vertical storage tanks are designed and manufactured to part three of the exacting British and European design code BS EN 12573 – the same standard as governs the manufacture of NIPLAST® cylindrical vertical storage tanks.

The same high-quality welding procedures and the best available component materials are deployed in the production of these vessels.

The key advantage with the NIPLAST® tank range is achieving the maximum storage capacity possible from the whatever space can be made available for the tank.

Product Specification


Product Specification

Polypropylene and high-density polyethylene remain the key materials of construction with  additional horizontal and/or vertical ribbing, completed either in these thermoplastics or in larger tanks, fully welded steel sections subsequently clad behind thermoplastic to ensure long-term corrosion resistance.

NIPLAST®-RV rectangular vertical tanks are used on chemical, water and effluent applications, have been located as collection tanks beneath cooling towers, are used as hydraulic testing tanks for industrial components and extensively for plating applications.

What Are Rectangular Vertical Tanks?

Rectangular Vertical Tanks offer a versatile and efficient solution for a wide range of liquid storage requirements. As their name suggests, these tanks feature a rectangular shape and vertical orientation. This design offers distinct advantages that make them a popular choice across diverse industries.

The rectangular shape of these tanks is particularly advantageous for space utilisation. Unlike cylindrical tanks, rectangular vertical tanks can be easily positioned against walls or in corners, making them an excellent option for maximising available space. This is especially beneficial in areas where space is limited, such as industrial facilities or urban environments.

The vertical orientation of these tanks further enhances their efficiency. By utilising vertical space, these tanks offer a higher storage capacity relative to their footprint. This makes them a practical choice for businesses needing to store substantial quantities of liquids without expanding their operational area horizontally.

Rectangular vertical tanks are typically crafted from robust materials like polyethylene or polypropylene, ensuring their resistance to corrosion and long-lasting performance. This makes them suitable for a wide array of applications, including storing chemicals, water, oils, and other liquids. Their design also facilitates easy installation and maintenance.

In addition to their functional benefits, rectangular vertical tanks often feature customisable options like fittings, outlets, and access points, enabling businesses to tailor the tanks to their specific requirements. This adaptability enhances their usability and ensures they can meet the unique demands of different industries.

Vertical Rectangular Plastic Tanks Applications

Vertical rectangular plastic tanks have a wide range of applications across various industries owing to their distinctive design and versatile characteristics. The tanks are well-suited for situations where space optimisation is crucial. Their rectangular shape enables them to fit efficiently against walls, corners, or in compact spaces, making them an excellent choice for facilities with limited space availability.

In the industrial sector, these tanks are commonly utilised for storing a variety of liquids, including chemicals, acids, and corrosive substances. Their vertical orientation allows for increased storage capacity without expanding the operational footprint, ensuring efficient use of valuable floor space. It makes them ideal for both large-scale manufacturing plants and smaller operations.

In the agricultural realm, vertical rectangular plastic tanks play a crucial role in storing water, fertilisers, and other agricultural inputs. Their robust construction ensures durability even in challenging outdoor environments. Additionally, these tanks are extensively used in the water treatment and wastewater management sector, providing a dependable means of containing liquids during treatment processes.

Rectangular Vertical Tanks’ adaptability, durability, and space-saving design contribute to their effectiveness across diverse sectors, making them the preferred choice for efficient liquid storage solutions.
