Burt Process Equipment custom fabricated plastic and steel tanks are manufactured with the aid of advanced technology such as computer-controlled bending and butt-welding machines for perfectly welded plastic tanks with seamless corners. These extremely durable thermoplastic products include exhaust systems, custom fabricated tanks, lab benches, and special corrosion-resistant equipment. We offer custom plastic tanks and other plastic process equipment in materials such as polypropylene, polyethylene, PVC, CPVC, PVDF, and Kynar®.
Burt Process Equipment’s engineers will work with you to select the best material for your custom tank or equipment, based on environmental conditions, chemical compatibility, and cost. We begin with detailed AutoCAD layout renderings for your approval, for a guaranteed finished product that aligns to your exact specifications.
Stainless steel tanks have a standard 2B mill finish, with optional polishes available. Steel and stainless-steel tanks have many uses, including mixing, chemical storage, and can be used in numerous manufacturing processes. Choose from flat, cone, dished, or sloped bottoms.
Accessories like mounting mixers, flanges, valves, fittings, and casters are available by request. For a complete custom-designed and fabricated system to meet process requirements, all tanks can be provided as a custom system with factory-tested plumbing, pumps, instrumentation, and control systems.
Utilizing the latest computer-controlled plastic sheet welding and bending equipment we provide seamless corners and eliminate hand welds when joining sheets. The sheet butt welders and benders used on our production floor provide outstanding weld quality and strength resulting in increased performance and lower cost when compared to strictly hand-welded fabrications.
Our bending machine can work with thermoplastic sheets up to 1 inch of thickness and 10 feet in length, like those used for custom polypropylene tanks. The machine has a bend range of 0 degrees through 95 degrees, creating rectangular tanks that have no vertical corner welds. Because the material is bent using the full sheet thickness, they do not require welding or secondary reinforcement inside the bend.
Sheet Butt Welding:
Our automatic machines create full-contact welds across the edge of the material resulting in a joined sheet with approximately 90% the strength of the original base material. No weld or filler rod is introduced and materials are joined to form a homogenous, continuous sheet with no raised weld surface.
