Industrial Storage Tanks

One of these storage tanks would  look great either track side or in an industrial yard. These tanks are  smaller single unit structures that are about 4.5 inches tall and have  approximately 3 inch footprint. The design has been updated to now  include relief valve piping and a rounded bottom. 

Tank Stands

 

The 4-unit tank stand consists of four tanks set at two levels. The lower level tanks are 2 inch diameter while the top tanks are 2 1/2 inch  diameter. This structure is meant to be placed along side track. The 2-unit structure incorporates the top two 2 1/2 diameter tanks and can  be placed directly over track to save space. The single unit tank farm  has one 2 1/2 inch diameter tank mounted about 2 1/2 inches high and is  meant to be placed along side the track. All tanks come with manway covers, relief valves, drainage valves and gate valves. The 2- and 4- unit models also include upper level walkways and caged ladders. Total  footprint for both the 2 and 4 unit models is approximately 10" x 7".  Footprint for the single unit is approximately 10" x 4".
Piping for all tanks may be shipped unattached to avoid damage. The pipes can be simply inserted into the nozzles (2 spots or 4 spots depending on tank configuration) and glued in place if needed. With respect to the 2-Unit configuration the caged ladder network may be shipped unattached. A very minor glue-up will be required on top and one  spot on the side. 

Propane / CO₂​ Tank

Propane tanks are used throughout the US industry for on site fuel to  power manufacturing plants. Carbon Dioxide gas is usually a by-product  of a manufacturing cycle such as an Ethanol plant that is collected and  sold. These tanks are designed to be placed along side with many of our  products as well as other manufacturers products such as factories,  grain silos, ethanol/methanol production facilities etc. This tank  measures approximately 8 ½ inches long by 2“ diameter. It comes  complete with a relief valve on top and a gate valve / piping on the  bottom. The tanks come standard undecorated in flat white and can be  decorated with either “Propane”, "Carbon Dioxide" or “Ethanol” decals.  The propane version is shown in the photo. 


Propane tanks can be combined with the Small Loading Platform to make a  great looking tank farm. In the configuration below propane can be  either loaded onto a tank car or off loaded to the storage tanks by  turning 'on/off' various control valves.

Elevated Storage Tank

 The Elevated Storage Tank has gone through a second re-designed. The  tanks will be elevated off the ground by a set of four H-columns that  are connected to the sides of the tank body. A dome has been added to  the bottom of the tank to make it look more realistic. The smaller  tank is 3" by approximately 6 1/2" with a total footprint of approx. 5"  while the larger tank is 4" by approximately 8" with a total footprint  of approximately 6". These tanks are designed to be used to store  additives for mixing or as storage for downstream product. They can  also be added on to any other products offered such as the Fuel Loading  Platform (see below) or the Bulk Fuel Tower. Choose from two sizes,  three colors and your favorite RR logo. 

Industrial Quench Tower With Filter

 The Industrial Quench tower and single unit Desalting Tank designs have  been combined into a single unit. The quench tower is a elevated water  storage tank while the desalting unit has been re-purposed as a filter  tank. The structure is listed under storage tanks and industrial yards  on our shopping cart. In addition to the tanks there are two lamp posts  included (AC/DC incandescent bulbs).
