CST Industries has expanded its product portfolio with TecTank FP, a jackable flat panel bolted tank for the dry bulk sector.
TecTank FP was designed based on the heritage of industry leading designs from Peabody TecTank, Columbian Steel Tank and Columbian TecTank. The new addition extends CST’s dry bulk, heavy industrial product portfolio in order to meet the needs of its growing global customer base.
Currently, 21 tanks have already been ordered for installation wihin the US over the next several months.
The new design of TecTank FP includes an optimised bolt pattern, increased steel thickness, reduced hardware and fewer penetration points. It will be available in short lead time pre-configured model and fully customisable designs.
“Through lean development processes, CST reinvigorated its product development and innovation processes with the new TecTank FP design – and is now delivering a more substantial value to its customers and to the company as a whole,” said Tim Carpenter, President and CEO at CST Industries Inc.
“CST is committed to meeting the needs of our customers,” said Jay Anzelmo, Director of Dry Bulk Sales at CST Industries. “This addition to our product portfolio ensures that our customers have a complete line of engineered storage systems available to truly provide our customers with what they have told us they need: options. Because of the shear diversity of industries we serve, the types of materials stored and the capacity required, and each installed in a completely unique location – the market dictates supplier flexibility. With the addition of CST’s TecTank FP, CST becomes the only tank supplier in the world to provide both a flat-panel, jack-built tank and a chime-panel (CP) scaffold built tank, capable of safely and economically being installed on every diverse site condition imaginable. We are no longer limited to one or two design styles or erection methods like other tank suppliers; now, we are truly able to fulfil the commitments asked for by our customers.”
The jacking system used on the new TecTank FP is the first ever jacking system designed by licensed professional engineers and proof load tested by a third party lab. Tanks are jack-built from the ground up, allowing for faster construction.
“CST is constantly evolving and developing new ways to further engrain our value proposition as the complete storage tank solution provider for customers. This extension elevates our capability to respond to our customers’ desire for one-stop shopping,” concluded Jon Dilley, VP of Global Marketing at CST.
