Our Capabilities

PTTG prioritizes building and maintaining strong relationships with its customers. Our team collaborates closely with clients to help design water storage tanks that make the customer’s vision a reality.

Fire protection tanks are fabricated inside PTTG’s shop, which features an environmentally controlled paint room that is one of the biggest in the Midwest. We build carbon, stainless, and duplex steel fire water tanks. PTTG also field-erects fire protection water storage tanks in a safe, efficient and timely manner. Delivering quality water storage tanks on schedule is our goal every time.

Our fire protection water storage tanks are insulated with polyisocyanurate standing seam panels or spray-applied urethane. Both these forms of insulation are usually paired with an immersion heater and thermostat.

PTTG helped perfect the panel insulation method for fire water storage tanks. Panel insulation is sheathed in aluminum and factory coated. It can be applied in any season – so there’s no need to wait for warmer weather – and looks much smoother than the spray-applied insulation.   Little to no exterior maintenance is required for panel insulated tanks with heaters. PTTG can also rebuild old insulation systems per National Fire Protection Association and Factory Mutual standards.

Our team of inspectors can make sure your existing fire water tanks meet codes and standards. We dispatch remotely operated underwater vehicles to both inspect and clean out the tanks. After every inspection, Pittsburg offers a DVD copy of what the robot found.

PTTG offers a wide variety of maintenance and repair options. Do you need your tank painted or a leak fixed? We can do that. Do you need your tank relocated? We do that too, as well as dismantles.

Standards and Compliances

Our experienced and innovative in-house engineers hold both domestic and international licenses. PTTG’s diverse engineering team stays up to date on all current design codes and standards, pursues periodic training in structural engineering topics, and attends conferences to stay abreast of the latest engineering developments.

With this breadth of knowledge, our team can design fire protection tanks in accordance with the latest editions of NFPA 22 Standard for Water Tanks for Private Fire Protection, AWWA D-100, AWWA D-103, Factory Mutual and several other applicable codes.
