Slenderness Ration and Tank Banding for Mild Steel Pump Tank Stations

  • Advantage PTS & CPTS pump tank stations with mild or stainless steel reservoirs use banding to increase tank wall strength without increasing wall thickness.
  • The Slenderness Ratio is used to compare strength of wall thickness and height and is a measure of tank strength.
  • A lower ratio means a stronger tank.
  • Competitive tanks that do not use banding must used a thicker wall to equal the Advantage slenderness ratio.
  • Thicker walls mean increased product weight and shipping costs for comparable size tanks.
