For the use of static bladder storage tanks, installation is fast and simple and only requires a level-, free of sharp objects surface to protect the tank against damage from rocks and or spikes. Ideally a layer of sand or a special ground sheet is used to minimize surface irregularities. Static storage tanks, when used for Fuels or other hazardous chemicals, are usually placed within a berm with a liner for secondary containment to prevent adverse environmental effects if a bladder tank ever malfunctions. For most non-hazardous applications ground cloths or sheets are used made from geotextile or PVC.

Flexible bladder tanks are made from numerous materials depending on the chemical compatibility of its content. LLDPE, PVC, TPU and Nitrile rubber panels/sheets are all welded in different ways through; heat, High frequency and vulcanizing consequently.

Bladder tanks were initially used for rapid deployment by DODs, UN, Ngos in the case of war or disaster and later for more long term applications in a wide range of industries such as farming, mining, manufacturing, marine and aviation. Bladder tanks have many capacities ranging from 500 liter up to 1 million liters. Liquid stored in a flexible bladder tank does not evaporate and any odor it may produce is completely sealed within the tank. Because the bladder tank works in a vacuum, contaminants cannot enter, what you put in is what you get out.
The panels/sheets are joined to form a sleeve which is then closed at each end to form a bladder tank. Materials selected for manufacturing bladder tanks in the first instant is for their Chemical compatibility of its content, secondly UV resistant if the application is for outside storage where UV plays a role and others are chosen for their mechanical abrasion resistance if used in transport on truck, trains or Aircraft.
There are many applications for bladder tanks, static storage, transportable and iso container tanks. Some examples of what can be stored or transported in the Bladder tanks are fossil fuels (hydrocarbon), liquid fertilizers, emulsions, rainwater, drinking and grey water.
