What’s New: A Better Chemical Storage Solution for Municipal Water Treatment Plants

03-18_ABetterChemicalStorageSolutionforMunicipalWaterTreatmentPlants_Header.png

It’s common for wastewater treatment plants to rely on cross-linked polyethylene chemical tanks, but many municipal drinking water plants are using inferior linear polyethylene or fiberglass tanks. While the short-term benefits are tempting, using linear polyethylene or fiberglass tanks is like pouring money down the drain. Instead, Poly Processing’s cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) tanks give users better performance, greater cost-effectiveness, and more innovative solutions.

When it comes to protecting your equipment, your personnel, and your chemical supplies, cross-linked polyethylene tank systems are the way to go. Not only are they the smartest financial investment, they outperform other tank options for reliability and longevity.
