PKG Equipment uses forming machines and butt welders to fabricate its plastic tanks, which it says makes them stronger and more durable than plastic tanks that are hand-welded. The company designs, fabricates and installs tanks that are engineered to withstand corrosion, high temperatures and rugged shop use, including storage, chemical process, rinse, plating, cone-bottom, push-pull, continuous-strip process, recirculation and pickling tanks.
Depending on the application, the tanks can be fabricated from homopolymer polypropylene, copolymer polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) or Teflon. PKG also supplies molded high density linear polyethylene (HDLPE) tanks and crosslinked polyethylene (XLPE) tanks.
