Stainless steel tanks the optimal choice for coastal LornePosted on March 30, 2019 in News & Projects
Grade 316 stainless steel water tanks are ideal when it comes to choosing a suitable tank that won’t corrode in coastal Lorne.
This seaside town on Victoria’s famous Great Ocean Road is a stunning place to live, situated between the sea and the Otways. It’s a mecca for tourists over summer and has long been one of the premier places to live along the state’s coastline.
But seaside life is accompanied by salty sea air, which can take a toll on external surfaces including metal water tanks. That’s why Grade 316 stainless steel water tanks in Lorne are a quality, sustainable solution to cope with briny breezes.
At Stainless Steel Tanks, we recommend Grade 316 tanks if you live on or near the coast or run a marine business. It’s the two to three per cent molybdenum in these tanks that amps up their corrosion protection, ensuring your tank doesn’t deteriorate and your stored water remains free of contaminants.
While our Grade 304 tanks are great performers when it comes to corrosion resistance, their 316 counterpart is the coastal king as it stands tough in the face of damaging salt from waves.
While toughness and durability are key reasons to install one of these tanks, the fact that it is 100 per cent recyclable and has a long life span simply add to its attractions.
Grade 316 stainless steel water tanks also protect against iodides, sulphuric acid and chlorides.
Outlaying money for a new tank is an investment in a sustainable future. After all, harvesting water that falls from the sky is good for the environment and reduces pressure on mains water supply.
So make sure you choose wisely, and select a tank that can handle a harsh coastal environment.
