Demineralised water is a water that is completely free of dissolved minerals. It is highly aggressive, and leaches metals and other materials it comes into contact with. Only inert materials are appropriate for the storage of demineralised water.
Permastore has successfully supplied demineralised water storage tanks serving the power generation industry. A significant concern for this type of application is the level of silica leaching and impacting on downstream plant and equipment. In 2010 Permastore instigated testing by an independent specialist laboratory for leaching of silica from the Glass-Fused-to-Steel product into demineralised water, the results of which are documented and are available.
Trickle filters are the final stage of effluent process. They contain media of various shapes and materials providing a surface for the growth of bacteria which feeds on the organic matter in the effluent. The combination of abrasion, aerated water and lack of access for maintenance makes Glass-Fused-to-Steel an ideal solution for the demands of trickle filter tanks.
Storm Water Tanks provide additional divert capacity for drainage systems at times of heavy rain. Effectively providing buffering to prevent overflow into sensitive receptors such as water courses. These tanks can be empty for much of their life and as such Glass-Fused-to-Steel provides effective UV resistant finish to both the inside and outside.
Bulk Solid Storage
PERMASTORE® Silos with the hard, inert finish offered by Glass-Fused-to-Steel (GFS) have exceptional resistance to abrasion and present a hygienic, low friction surface to the stored product.
Some of the bulk solid storage applications include:
- Food production, coal, carbon black, fishmeal, limestone, powder, plastics, road salt, soya meal, grains or other whole or milled food stuff silos
The designs of the silos are tailored to suit specific material properties and allow for a range of loading (filling) and unloading (discharge) systems. They also can incorporate roofs, cones and connections for pipework or sensors.
Sludge Cake Silos
Sludge Cake Silos provide storage of thickened / dewatered sludge following digestion. Challenges in design include the abrasion and high loads from the contents friction as well as high pH’s from chemical dosing. Glass-Fused-to-Steel silos provide an excellent solution as it finish reduces internal friction, resists abrasion and chemical attack.

PERMASTORE® tanks are a cost effective and safe alternative for storing water and wastewater on fracking sites. Above ground storage tanks are the safest method for wastewater storage. Permastore offers a reliable, safe and secure solution to store wastewater from the fracking process in order for this to be treated.
PERMASTORE® structures offer easy transport to even the most remote sites and the flexibility to re-model, extend, dismantle and re-site makes them an ideal choice for all your fracking containment solutions.
