Ferrous Chloride

What is Ferrous Chloride?

Ferrous Chloride, otherwise known as Iron (II) Chloride, is the chemical compound of formula FeCI2.

What is the most effective storage solution for Ferrous Chloride?

Assmann recommends that Ferrous Chloride tanks be constructed of Linear or Crosslink Polyethylene. Additionally,  Double Wall Plastic Tanks provide the best protection against spills, making it the safest option for Ferrous Chloride. Additionally, our experts may recommend specific accessories for Ferrous Chloride storage, such as proper venting, fittings, joints, manways, and secondary containment.

Are there additional concerns when storing Ferrous Chloride?

Ferrous Chloride is dark in color, which may stain or discolor your storage tanks. We recommend a float level type indication for accurate content measurements.

The Assmann Way

The Assmann difference is in the process. Assmann keeps quality first and failure far out of mind.

Uniform Wall Thickness

Uniform wall thickness provides better structural integrity compared to other tanks on the market. Because of its unified durability throughout, Assmann storage solutions are less susceptible to tears and spills, protecting your facility from the corrosive qualities of Ferrous Chloride.

Air Cooling

Air cooling eliminates a process related stress in rotomolding, where water cooling shocks the plastic and causes an abrupt stop to the curing process. Assmann is the only manufacturer who uses non-shielded molds with low temperature heat and gradual air cooling to ensure reliability that lasts.

Specific Gravity

Using a 1.9 rated tank gives additional wall thickness to help extend the lifespan of the storage tank. Assmann offers 1.9 rated storage tanks in either crosslink or linear polyethylene.


Under-venting is one of the most common causes for tank failure. When filling and draining tanks, it’s important to keep the tank from vacuum and pressure exposure. A vent two times the size of your largest inlet is required to avoid pressurization. Sometimes a larger vent is necessary when tanks are pneumatically filled. Assmann offers a variety of venting options in multiple sizes and configurations.

How to Avoid Tank Problems

Containers or tanks used for storage should be kept tightly sealed to prevent moisture absorption. Due to its corrosive nature, storage areas should be equipped with appropriate safety equipment, including emergency showers and eyewash stations.

Material & Configuration

Double wall plastic tanks provide the best protection against spills, making it the safest option for Ferrous Chloride.
