Onion Self-Supporting Tanks -Oil Spill-Storage

The Open Top Tanks are frameless self-rising circular “Onion” shaped reservoirs / bladders used for oil spill response, environmental operations, and spill recovery.

A wide range of special government approved material coatings are available for these tanks. These tanks are made of flexible and oil resistant material. Their design, fabric and manufacturing process make them hard wearing and suitable for intensive use.

The Open Top Tanks have a self-rising / floating collar made of either closed cell foam or air filled, these are light weight, reliable, fast response units requiring no frame set-up.

No frame is required as the floating collar rises automatically. Tie downs, anchor points, hand holds, ground sheet, carry/storage bag and filling connections are all included. Available accessories include: replaceable inner liner, top cover, repair kit and outlets up to 6” are optional.
