Warranty & Savings
Shop Built Corrugated tanks are backed by a one year manufacturer's warranty.  Tanks are engineered and manufactured from corrugated hot dipped mill galvanized steel.  These tanks are  extremely cost effective when compared to bolted or welded steel tanks.

Most field erected tanks meet seismic safety standards without anchoring, saving the  expense of a concrete foundation.  Set on a contained gravel foundation, wide diameters provide resistance to overturning  without the need for seismic anchors.  If anchoring is required or requested, American Tank  Co. wet stamp for building permits. will provide a foundation  design and submittal drawings  with a California Civil Engineers  or customer approval.

Field erected corrugated tanks are typically specified  for storage requirements between 20,000 to 150,000 gallon capacities.

Farbertite is a Bituminous Ceramic Emulsion coating.  Applied to the interior of a tank, Farbertite bonds to the metal to form a water tight membrane to inhibit water contact with the steel.  This membrane prevents rust and insures the longest possible tank life.

Corrugated galvanized steel tanks have been manufactured in California for over 100 years.  The normal service life is 25-30 years based on historical observations.  With periodic maintenance, ATC tanks can provide 30 to 50 years of quality service.
