Aquamate® Strong Rural Water Tanks
Rural Water Tanks
For about 100 years, and with the general replacement of concrete water tanks, the corrugated galvanised water tank has become an iconic part of the Australian rural landscape.
For over 35 years, Aquamate has been part of that history providing thousands of water tanks to the rural community. Using galvanised steel with a polethylene lining means tanks are better equipped for the Australian climate and provide the best anti-corrosion solution.
Today Aquamate manufacture the corrugated panels using automated CNC roll forming machinery in their factory in Adelaide. The liners are also fabricated there in single pieces up to 4000kg to minimise defects and reduce installation times.
Cold-formed Steel Fabrication
Aquamate Rural Water Tanks
Galvanised Tank Shell
Aquamate tank shells are ideal for storing water due to their lightweight steel construction and heavy-duty galvanising. The lightweight, thin-gauge steel panels provide all the necessary strength without adding extra weight or cost.
All tank panels are coated with a thick layer of galvanised metal that weighs three times as much as a conventional zinc-aluminium alloy coating. This and Aquamate’s polymer lining provide outstanding corrosion resistance and durability.
The steel panels are bolted together thanks to the modular design, which allows easy onsite assembly, handling, and freight.
Aquamate rolls their own water tank panels from heavy duty galvanised steel coil at their Adelaide production facility. This enables complete control of the quality and finish of products, as well as providing competitive pricing to customers. These in-house capabilities also mean the company can customise water tank shells for special projects and replace old tank panels.
Flexible Polyolefin Tank Liner
All of Aquamate’s tank liners are made of a specifically blended polymer, polyolefin, that is flexible, stretchable, fatigue-resistant, and flexible—all qualities you need for a water tank. The quality of the tank liners means Aquamate can provide a manufacturer’s 20-year no-leaks warranty.
Aquamate has the unique capability to fabricate single piece liners up to 4,000kg. The large panels improve defect rates, minimise seems and decrease installation times. The liners are manufactured at the Aquamate factory and is means the company can offer their “Zero Leaks” 20 year warranty.
