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 either PVC, Polypropylene, HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) PE100 and other industrial plastic materials dependant upon the purpose. These materials each have excellent chemical resistance in corrosive environments where solvents, degreasing agents or volatile acids are being used.
We make tanks and liners 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 Design 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 desired end result.
Some of our projects have been:
Our certified construction methods and procedures have been devised from over 40 years of experience and training in Plastics. We comply with the Australian Standard AU/NZS 4130.
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 42 years of experience in Industrial Tank Fabrication within Australia we pride ourselves on the standard and quality of our end product.
ACID/CHEMICAL TANKS and LINERS
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 or PE 100 which is able to withstand most highly corrosive environments.
We can design, engineer and build a tank or liner to suit your requirements or specifications and install it if needed. Most tank liners are installed on site.
On-site repair service offered.
CONTAINMENT TANKS and BUNDING
RetroFab can manufacture custom-made containment tanks and bunding that will offer you leak proof storage. We produce tanks and bunding in virtually any size, shape and containment capacity you desire.
We can manufacture either in-house at our factory or on-site at your business when necessary and offer an on-site repair service.
