Aboveground storage tanks (AST) are used in a variety of industrial, commercial, and residential applications to hold everything from water to hazardous chemicals. ASTs are designed to provide reliable containment in indoor and outdoor conditions, including rain, wind, UV exposure, and wide temperature fluctuations. 

Pittsburg Tank & Tower Group (PTTG) is a leading provider of custom-manufactured tanks for a wide range of applications. Our comprehensive services include tank foundation design, storage tank fabrication, water tank fabrication, and more. Our seasoned designers and engineers know how to design a tank to meet the particular needs of nearly any industry, from chemical and petrochemical storage to fire protection and potable water processing. 

PTTG’s storage tanks are available in many materials and designs and can be modified to meet even the most rigorous regulatory standards, including: 

  • API 620
  • API 650
  • NFPA 22
  • AWWA D100
  • Factory Mutual

Storage Tank Design & Engineering

As industry-leading steel tank fabricators, PTTG is dedicated to providing outstanding storage tank design and fabrication, from turnkey foundations to complete tank fabrication. 

Our team of experts is fluent in API 650 and 620, AWWA D100, NFPA 22, and Factory Mutual standards, and we regularly participate in these associations to stay up-to-date on the latest industry trends. We apply that knowledge to each tank design, with special attention to the particular needs of every tank.

We understand that time is as critical as quality, so you can expect a quick and accurate analysis of foundation loads, capacity, material, dimension calculations, and civil design specifications. These professionally engineered drawings and calculations will be submitted to you for your full approval before we begin laying the tank foundations. 

Whether you require a standard storage tank design or highly specialized containment with internal floating roofs (IFR), pipe coils, and baffles, our experienced team has the design and engineering capabilities to ensure that you have the perfect aboveground tank for your application. 

Tank Foundations & Installations

Aboveground storage tanks offer a variety of benefits over their underground counterparts, but they also have their share of challenges. At PTTG, we pride ourselves on providing turnkey solutions to meet these challenges head-on. One of the primary challenges for aboveground tank installation is foundation design. 

We understand that building sites don’t always have the best ground conditions for your tank foundation. PTTG’s engineers and design experts are experienced in developing unique foundations, including ringwalls, slabs, caissons, pad piers, driven piles, and more. Our team creates application-specific foundations consistent with all applicable codes and regulations. With highly-trained foundation crews on site for the entire installation process, we ensure quality installation from beginning to end.
