Tecniplas Provides 250 m³ Tank for Brazilian Water Company

Tecniplas has completed the production of a 250 m³ tank for storage of drinking water for the Catarinense Water and Sanitation Company (Casan).

According to Luis Gustavo Rossi, Director of Tecniplas, this project is unusual because the tank was produced as a single part, despite its dimensions.

“At 250 m³, 5 m in diameter and 12.75 m in height, it is the largest monolithic reservoir to be put into operation at Casan,” he says.

He notes that it is possible to manufacture tanks of this type up to 400 m³. Above this, Tecniplas uses oblation, a technology that allows the production in sections of tanks up to 4,500 m³.

The Casan reservoir will store potable water and will be part of the supply system of the city of Palma Sola, in the west of Santa Catarina. The tank was produced in accordance with the requirements of Act 2914 of the Brazilian Ministry of Health, which provides for procedures to control the quality of water for human consumption.

“We use special resins for contact with drinking water, and also adjust the translucency of these polymers so that sunlight does not contribute to the proliferation of algae,” notes Rossi.
