New Caustic Tank


A new 20 ton bunded tank was carefully lifted into place by two cranes onto specially strengthened concrete foundations outside the Production Department.
Affectionately referred to by an unnamed member of staff as “Thomas the Tank” it will be used to store tanker loads of liquid caustic, which will improve the efficiently of the Production Department.
We currently use powdered caustic which, apart from the health and safety and manual handling issues, generates considerable heat when mixed with water and needs at least 48 hours to cool down before it can be used in the production process.
Thomas the Tank will enable us to manufacture batches of Washaid and other caustic products far more quickly and efficiently and release tanker capacity and manufacturing time to help us manage our increasing production requirement more efficiently.
