Patented FDO and Tank Stand from Assmann
Assmann Corporation of America has recently received patents for its molded in Full Drain Outlet (FDO) assembly (Patent No. US 8,348,090 B2) and modular polyethylene tank stands (Patent No. US 8,814,110 B2).
The FDO assembly is for tanks of 2,500 gallons and larger, providing the ability to drain the tank without the need for mechanically installed nozzles and can be utilized where heavy solids or salts may accumulate in the bottom of the tank.
The modular polyethylene tank stands, for use with the FDO assembly, can be installed on any suitable, flat surface and elevate polyethylene tanks 12" from grade for a full drain tank without the need to pour concrete. The stands are 100% chemical resistant and are suitable for all corrosive environments. This stand has been tested to over 300,000 lbs. of crush force.
The modular tank stand also features corrugated sidewalls for maximum support, interlocking dovetail joints for securing modular sections together and optional wind load anchoring points. The lightweight modular sections are easily disassembled and relocated to a different site. A wide range of color choices are also available.
