What is a Videx Round (cylindrical) Tank?

The Videx round (cylindrical) water storage tank is the most recent addition to our product catalogue.

Our round tank is designed to be used across various sectors and applications. The radial and vertical stiffeners used in these round tanks are an exclusive in-house design which makes them ideal to use in high-velocity wind areas.

They are also quick and easy to install. There is very little site preparation that needs to be done, because they are installed using an onsite jacking system and in-house installers.

Watch this video to see how our round tank is constructed.

Videx round tanks come with a wide selection of sizes and capacities for you to choose from. The minimum capacity for our round tank is 8kL and extends all the way to a maximum capacity of 2000kL (2mL).

Our cylindrical tanks are proudly made in South Africa, at our factory in Germiston, Johannesburg.

Our lead times are typically 4 to 8 weeks with the installation times being on average ±20 days.

What are the benefits of a Videx round (cylindrical) tank?

circular (cylindrical) tankThere are two main benefits to choosing a round tank.

Our food-grade PVC bladder system

The first benefit of using a Videx round tank is the bladder system. It prevents liquids from making direct contact with the tank panels. This extends the lifespan of your tank due to a lower risk of corrosion.

Because we are pedantic about quality, the bladders we use consist of a food-grade PVC plasticised formulation coated on a polyester woven fabric with a high-frequency pattern weld adhesion, and they are double pattern welded on all the cross joints for extra strength.

Economical for your space requirements

The second benefit of using a round tank is that is doesn’t take up as much space as other tanks do in relation to each other. We use a 1:2 ratio when installing the round tank. For instance, if your base is 10m², we can install the tank up to 20 metres in height. This allows you to maximise the space that you have and install a tank that ensures the greatest capacity to store water.

Where are Videx round (cylindrical) tanks used?

Videx circular tanksThere are a variety of applications for our round tanks.

The main application

Have you ever walked in a shopping centre and looked up to see sprinklers built into the ceiling? They are a crucial part of the construction of any building and are vital to businesses looking to protect their assets in the event of a fire.

When smoke or a fire is detected by the fire alarm, the sprinkler system automatically activates in order to suppress the fire until the fire department can arrive and completely extinguish the flames.

Businesses cannot be lax and rely on municipalities to supply an adequate and constant supply of water to ensure the sprinkler system is ready to activate when called upon.

That’s why many businesses install Videx round (cylindrical) water storage tanks in order to supply a constant and sufficient flow of water through the sprinkler system in the event of a fire.

Secondary applications

Our round tanks store water in a secure manner for a variety of other purposes.

For some businesses, installing a round water storage tank ensures that their fire hydrants and hose reels have enough water to suppress fires if the need arises.

Other businesses install round tanks in order to supply storage food-grade potable water that can be used as part of their food preparation or manufacturing process.
