CUSTOM BUILT TANKS and BUNDING  

 

Plastic tanks and bunding offer a great alternative to aluminium, steel, fibreglass and stainless steel tanks as they excel in flexibility and chemical resistance.   

 

Our custom-made bunding and tanks are constructed using PVC, Polypropylene, HDPE (High Density Polyethylene), PE100 and other plastic materials dependant upon the purpose.  These materials each have excellant chemical resistance in corrosive environments where solvents, degreasing agents or volatile acids are being used. 

 

We make tanks for a variety of purposes including aquaculture tanks, acid tanks, sump tanks, rinse tanks, drinking & grey water tanks suitable for RV's, caravans, boats, trucks etc.  RetroFab custom build for the specific needs of a wide array of industries and have the ability to create tanks/storage vessels of any size, specifications and purpose that are required by our clients.   We can assist with design and material selections so as to achieve the end result you require.  

 

Some of our projects have been:

  • Settling tanks
  • Mixing tanks
  • Reclamation tanks
  • Acid resistant Polypipe manifolds
  • Mobile Water Tanks
  • Acid dipping tanks
  • Aqua-culture tanks 
  • Chrome plating tanks
  • Tanks suitable for RV's and Buses - ie:  Grey and Drinking water
  • Chemical and water tanks suitable for mounting on vehicles 
  • Chute liners
  • Battery trays/containers
  • Lots more 

 

TANK CONSTRUCTION 

 

Our certified construction methods and procedures have been devised from 35 years of Plastic Experience and training.  We comply with the Australian Standard AU/NZS 4130.  

 

Due to our fabrication and engineering knowledge we take great pride on never having had a construction failure. We have set procedures for building and welding tanks to ensure that the end product is structurally safe and Company policy is to "overspec" tanks and containers so as to have minimal sidewall and material deflection.  

 

Our Senior Tradesman started hot air welding in 1978 and was one of the first fabricators in Australia to use an extrusion welding gun.  Our training and welding techniques have been created over a period of time and not in a 4 day course.   All our tanks are "Hydro" and "Electronically" tested for leaks during construction and prior to leaving our workshop. 

 

With over 37 years of experience in Industrial Tank Fabrication within Australia we pride ourselves on the standard and quality of our end product.

ACID TANKS 

Acid tanks (or galvanizing tanks) are used to remove impurities from various metal components. This procedure requires a strong acid solution so we build our tanks using polypropylene which is able to withstand most highly corrosive environments.  

 

Our tanks are built for longevity by an industry leading tradesman with more than 35 years of experience in the Plastic Fabrication industry. 

 

We can design, engineer and build a tank to your exact specifications as well as install it for you.
