ErectaStep’s prefabricated modular metal stairs were able to meet the challenges of creating access platforms for a Tank Farm in Missouri. See installation

With ErectaStep’s prefabricated industrial metal stairs and it’s modular stair components the challenges Tank Farm Maintenance Platforms were overcome successfully and both project partners were happy with the results.

A company in Missouri needed help with being able to access and maintain their tanks in their 14 tank farm. In addition to being OSHA compliant, requirements included weight limitations and an ability to replace parts of the maintenance platform without having to weld on top of the tanks. Each stair component had to be less than 50lbs because they had to be carried up the metal ladders individually, by hand and then be installed.

Tank farms are a facility or field for storage of bulk chemicals such as petroleum. Tank farms are also common when producing or handling acid of varying concentrations and qualities. Tank farms may be affected by corrosion and fire, so proper corrosion and fire protection is necessary.

In the petroleum industry, a tank farm is also known as an oil depot, installation or oil terminal. Liquid petrochemicals or chemicals are typically stored in a tank farm prior to sending to its final destination, end consumers or retail facilities.
