A double-wall tank differs from a single-wall tank in several ways, mainly design, fabrication, testing procedures, lifespan, price, function, technology and user benefits. The added environmental and safety impact of the “second wall” in storage tanks often becomes immeasurable over time.
Bendel double-wall tanks’ outer “wall” wraps and surrounds the inner tank, creating an interstitial space between the two walls. Any potential leak that may occur from the inner tank is captured in the sealed space, preventing a release into the environment and nearby work space. With the storage tank’s leak-monitoring provision, a warning of any type of breach or leak from the inner tank will be issued. The varying monitoring devices include electrical, mechanical, pressure, vacuum, hydrostatic, or manual dipstick.

Storage tanks are designed, built and tested to meet industry standards including UL-142, NFPA-22, API-650, API-620, API-12F or ASME.
