Pronal elastomer and plastomer
flexible tanks from Air Springs Supply are meeting the challenges of liquid
storage and transportation in onshore, offshore, remote, inhospitable and
Fabricated by the same company
that provided the lifting bags to raise parts of the Titanic 4km down in the
Atlantic, the new Pronal tanks are relied upon by industrial, civil and
military organisations around the world, including mining and energy, oil and
gas, manufacturing and materials handling, and construction and infrastructure sectors.
Available in capacities up to 1000m³ in several product ranges for air, sea and
ground storage as well as transportation of various liquids, these flexible
tanks can be used for water, hydrocarbons, foodstuffs and agricultural and
industrial products and waste.
Air Springs Supply National
Sales and Marketing Manager Mr James Maslin explains that Pronal flexible tanks
have a versatile application range, with their use extending from buffer water
tanks for civil and military potabilisation systems, through to transportable
emergency water containers or fuel tanks for electricity generators and plant machinery
on construction, exploration and development sites.
A major design highlight of the
Pronal flexible tanks is that the stored products are never in contact with air,
allowing liquids such as paint, latex, fruit juice, emulsions and fuels to be
safely stored. Pronal also supplies all complementary products used in fuel
logistics, including pumps, guns and filtering systems.
The quality and durability of
Pronal water tank technology make it suitable for potable water, storm water, grey
water, fire protection, agriculture and viticulture, civil defence and public
works, and sewage in remote locations.
Key features of Pronal flexible
tanks include sizes up to 1000 cubic metres; manufactured from high resistance
elastomer or plastomer-coated fabric, robustly assembled by vulcanising or
welding; lightweight, foldable and strong; compact when folded and easy to
transport; rapid deployment; no microbial, bacterial or fungicidal development;
no contact between air and contents; resistance to UV and ozone exposure;
flexible surface adaptable to the shape of complex surface areas with evenly
distributed load; low-cost solution with no civil engineering required;
transportable on trucks, boats and aircraft, suspended beneath helicopters or
towed behind a vehicle; and anti-crash and self-sealing versions available for
use as structured tanks and ferry fuel tanks for aircraft.
Pronal flexible tanks complement
Air Springs Supply’s established ranges of Pronal pipeline stoppers used by
major Australasian companies concerned about spills of potentially hazardous or
harmful liquids, as well as pipeline stoppers used for maintenance, testing and
emergency tasks involving worker safety and environmental protection. The Pronal
range also includes tough, compact lifting cushions.
