Tank Foundation Systems

CEMATRIX Cellular concrete:

  • provides cost-effective solutions.
  • accelerates construction schedules.
  • reduces on site work force requirements.
  • is used to provide both the insulation and bearing support, for above ground storage tanks.
  • is a monolithic material and will not slough along the perimeter.
  • provides temperature reduction to the secondary containment liner, allowing installation of a less expensive liner.
  • reduces tank settlement, by preventing desiccation and drying of the underlying soil.
  • substantially reduces below grade heat loss, resulting in operating cost-efficiencies.
  • CEMATRIX offers geothermal engineering assistance. Geothermal modeling will provide exact thermal reduction recommendations.
