Safely Store Liquid Asphalt with Etnyre’s Vertical Storage Tanks

As an asphalt paving contractor, having a way to safely and efficiently store liquid asphalt is essential to the success of your business. However, selecting suitable storage tanks for the job can be challenging if you aren’t sure where to look. Thankfully, in addition to our selection of asphalt paving and road maintenance equipment, Etnyre manufactures durable and easily accessible vertical storage tanks for liquid asphalt and various other materials. When it comes to meeting the needs of paving contractors, municipalities and road maintenance crews, Etnyre has you covered.

The Advantages of Vertical Storage Tanks

If moving liquid asphalt across significant distances, tankers and horizontal storage tanks are your best option (and something Etnyre can supply). However, for on-site asphalt storage, vertical tanks offer several advantages over horizontal tanks, such as:

  • Maximizing Space – For any business, space is always at a premium. Thus, it’s essential to maximize the area you have available to you. And horizontal tanks take up long land lengths, depending on tank capacity. Conversely, several vertical storage tanks can take up the same area as one horizontal tank. While land usage is limited, open air isn’t!
  • Keeps Asphalt Fresh – When storing liquid asphalt in a vertical storage tank, the area of asphalt exposed to air is significantly less than when stored in a horizontal tank. Moreover, for preserving your asphalt, limiting exposure to air is crucial. With less contact with air, oxidization of asphalt is limited, ensuring it stays fresh for much longer.
  • Pumps Aren’t Required – While Etnyre can equip your storage tank with an electric pumping system for more effortless loading and unloading, pumps aren’t required. Due to the set-up of vertical storage tanks, asphalt discharge is managed by gravity’s natural occurrence.
