Structa Technology – a division of the Structa Group of Companies – offers solutions for water storage from 5 000 litres to 4.5 million litres through the Prestank and Circotanks ranges to suit both function and budget.
Prestank is Structa’s 40-year-old flagship brand, while Circotanks is an economical but robust round galvanised steel tank range. Prestank The Prestank water storage tank is the ideal water storage solution for volumes from 10 000 litres and above, especially on elevated stands. They are fully customisable, high quality water storage solutions that are manufactured according to SANS guidelines and meet South African Hot Dipped Galvanising requirements. A major advantage of the sectional tank design is that it facilitates easier handling and transportation over long distances to remote areas, regardless of the final dimensions of the assembled unit. Furthermore, assembly onsite is quickly achieved without the need for sophisticated tooling methods. Minimum maintenance is required because the galvanised steel panels resist weathering from the elements, while maintaining the integrity of the water within from contamination of most forms.
Manufactured from Aluzinc sheet cold rolled with a stiffening profile, the Circotank utilises a PVC liner which hugely improves the speed and quality of build, resulting in a reliable product. Liner replacement is possible, thus resulting in ease of maintenance and longevity. Circotank is offered in two size ranges, being a maxi-range covering tank sizes of 100 000 litres up to 1.5 million litres and a midi range covering a very user-friendly range of 5 000 – 20 000 litres. The maxi-range is aimed at medium scale water storage projects, with typical application in mass rural water supply schemes. These tanks are easily transported, have simple foundations, and can be erected without cranes – making an economical total cost per cubic metre water storage.
