Containment Solutions Underground Tanks

Containment Solutions Inc. (CSI) advanced double-wall technology gives storage tank owners, municipalities, counties, provinces, and states proven protection against petroleum contamination of underground water supplies. In addition to our UL listing, our tanks comply with the EPA’s recommendation for secondary containment systems wherever underground tanks are located near underground water supplies.Containment-Solutions-Single-Wall-UST.jpg

Containment Solutions double-wall tanks give you two levels of protection, so you have twice the assurance and twice the risk management that any single-wall tank can offer. The primary tank is designed to contain your fuel. In the unlikely event that there is a breach in this wall, the secondary wall is designed to contain your product and prevent seepage into the environment.

Hydrostatic Monitoring

For the most effective double-wall storage tank protection, Containment Solutions recommends hydrostatic monitoring. The cavity between the inner and outer tank walls (interstitial space), as well as a factory-mounted reservoir, is filled with a non-toxic colored brine solution. Hydrostatic pressure is continuously applied to the interstitial space, enabling monitoring of the primary and secondary tanks. An electronic sensor in the tank reservoir will send an alarm if the brine level changes beyond a predetermined level.Containment-Solutions-Double-Wall-UST.jpg

The CSI Hydrostatic Monitoring System offers a leak detection capability superior to other methods because of our unique tank construction. The independent tank wall design ensures that 100% of the primary and secondary tank walls are in contact with monitoring fluid. This open environment allows brine to move freely through the interstitial space, unimpeded by glass fabric bonded to the tank walls typically used in competitive designs. Since the unblocked interstitial space does not hinder communication, the CSI Hydrostatic Monitoring System is fast and effective.

Hydrostatic Monitoring detects leaks in either the primary or secondary tank walls in all installed conditions.
