Oil tanks

Stainless Steel Tanks for Storage and Processes

Oleochemical products play a crucial role in manufacturing various goods, ranging from personal care items to industrial applications. These chemicals find their way into products such as shampoos, paints, food items, and pharmaceuticals.

The process of refining and storing oleochemicals requires high-quality tanks. These tanks need to be specifically designed to meet industry standards, ensuring that the oils are stored safely and efficiently.

Selection of the right kind of tank adheres to stringent industry guidelines and contributes to the successful outcome of the final products.

The right storage solution is essential for handling such critical materials effectively, whether in domestic or commercial settings.

Oleochemical Tanks

Gpi specialises in a wide array of tanks and equipment essential for processing animal and edible oils. With extensive experience in manufacturing, placing, and installing these products for the oleochemical industry, Gpi provides expert advice.

Our offer is not limited to heating and cooling solutions but also encompasses optimal finish levels to ensure product durability.

Additionally, our connections with reputable suppliers allow us to recommend the best agitators for specific needs. Thus, we can guarantee a long-lasting product that aligns with industry standards and client expectations.

Do you have any questions?

By having engineering, production, and quality control in-house, we can supervise quality to the greatest extent possible.

Thanks to it, we deliver solutions that satisfy the most stringent requirements in terms of hygiene, product longevity, safety, and operating convenience — for both liquids and solids.

Building, testing, and making your equipment operational on location is no problem for our SCC** certified assembly department. Naturally, we adhere to international standards and regulations.

Tank Agitator Combinations

We can supply the agitator and the tank. Gpi has a good working relationship with all reputable agitator suppliers for problem-free processing and assembly.

Finishing Level

As a standard, we produce our food tanks with an internal roughness of Ra 0.8. However, if desired, we can also produce tanks with much smoother (and therefore hygienic) inner walls.

Crystallisation Tanks

Crystallisation tanks are reactors in which hot liquids are gradually cooled in order to facilitate crystal growth.

Gpi manufactures a range of crystallisers for use in the processing of oil products, including a design with dimple lamella and a self-designed agitator. View a recent project using this design here.

Why Stainless Steel Oil Tanks?

We produce tanks in stainless steel only.

We have more than 30 years of experience working with stainless steel. We commonly use stainless steel 304 / 304(L) and stainless steel 316 / 316(L).

In many cases, the choice of type depends on the required hygiene.

The right finish is also related to this: we can deliver your oil tank in any desired roughness.

Duplex Tanks for Oil

Duplex is an extra strong and corrosion-resistant material. Lately, we have seen an increase in the use of duplex for tank construction.

Duplex is more difficult to work with (e.g. welding), but it can be used thinner than the usual types of stainless steel. For this reason, a duplex tank can sometimes be the superior option, especially for large tanks.

A combination of different types is also possible. Our experts can advise you on the best choice for your project.

Certified Oil Tanks

We have all the knowledge and relevant tank construction certificates to deliver high-quality oil tanks. Not only do we have our own engineers and production staff, we also have our own quality control (QC) department.

We are, among others, ISO 9001, ISO 3834-2, NEN-EN 1090 and KIWA BRL-K756/03 certified. It allows us to produce oil tanks in accordance with the requirements set by KIWA and with relevant construction standards.

Accessories for Oil Tanks

A stainless steel tank with an agitator

We work with fixed partners and reputable suppliers who provide us with high-quality agitators and other fittings. We can handle and assemble everything.

Finishing of the tank

A common roughness in the food industry is Ra 0.8, but almost any finish is possible — both smoother and rougher.

Heating and cooling oil tanks

We can fully meet the specifications for your product. Both cooling and heating, or a combination, are possible.

The tanks can also be insulated, resulting in a double-walled tank. We are happy to talk with you to find the most efficient solution for your application.

Your Oil Tanks Built in Our Factory or on Location

We have two factories in the heart of the Netherlands: in Lopik and Groot-Ammers. Tanks are transported by road from Lopik and can also be shipped from our location at the water (de lek) in Groot-Ammers.

  • If transport is possible, we build tanks in our production halls in Lopik or Groot-Ammers.
  • If transport is impossible, we can also build tanks on-site using our efficient construction methods.

FAQ

A double-walled tank is a type of oil storage tank that consists of two layers — an inner tank to hold the oil and an outer bund or layer to prevent leaks and spills.

The capacity of double-walled tank can vary, but a common size is 1350 litres, suitable for domestic or commercial use.

Stainless steel oil tanks offer durability, resistance to corrosion, and provide peace of mind for safe oil storage.

Yes, there are slimline oil tanks that are designed to fit in tight spaces while still offering efficient storage solutions.

Yes, we offer commercial oil tanks with larger capacities and tailored features that are available for purchase to meet industrial and commercial needs.
