United Plastic Fabricating boasts decades of experience satisfying the fire truck industry’s needs for custom water tanks. This directly translated into our success in supplying hydroblasting (jetter) tanks within the sewer cleaning truck vertical. We help OEM’s maximize vehicle space, and for end-users, our tanks add more resale value. For safety reasons, we install interior baffles to reduce sloshing greatly. Our rust-proof plastic is much easier to clean (as opposed to aluminum or steel).
UPF Sewer/Jetter Tank Benefits:
Poly Jetter Tanks Use Baffling to Reduce Sloshing While Increasing Safety.
Our tank baffling system is the strongest in the industry. The baffled water tanks limit the water movement inside the tank to limit sloshing and reduce the odds of a vehicle tipping. Baffling also helps with quicker braking/stopping. Additionally, baffling can help you lower vehicle maintenance costs due to less wear and tear on chassis, suspension, and shocks.
Poly Jetter Tanks are Lighter Weight.
Polypropylene tanks reduce your GVW, allowing more carrying capacity, or may provide you the option to hire non-CDL drivers. This may reduce labor costs and opens up a much larger pool of candidates. Additionally, it could enable operators to carry more product, reducing refilling trips. This would save on gas, mileage, wear and tear (and time). Thus, more efficient jetter tanks will make your business more profitable.
Poly Jetter Tanks Are More Durable than Aluminum Sewer/Jetter Tanks.
Unlike stainless or aluminum sewer jetter tanks, hydroblasting tanks made out of polypropylene plastic are resistant to denting. Polypropylene is tough because it can deform without breaking. As a result, you can hit it with a hammer to prove its toughness. Polypropylene tanks are incredibly durable, and they will look good and last for many, many years.
Poly Surfaces Are Much Easier to Clean than Aluminum Surfaces.
Polypropylene is a homogeneous material. Poly’s chemical composition protects itself against contamination due to its excellent chemical resistance. Since plastic is rust-free, you don’t have to worry about your Jetter tanks corroding. Its chemical resistance protects it from many organic solvents, acids, and alkalines. Additionally, it is easy to clean your poly tank, saving many man-hours over the life of each vehicle.
