PIONEER WATER TANKS V-LOCK TANK PROFILE
The V-LOCK Tank Profile design is unique to Pioneer Water Tanks’ manufacturing. Along with high-grade industrial materials, the corrugated profile makes Pioneer tanks stiffer and stronger than rounded corrugated tanks.
The V-LOCK tank design is listed in technical specifications for every model of Pioneer Water Tank, “TANK BODY Wall Panels – Grade 300MPa (44,000psi) steel sheets, profiled and fabricated according to the V-LOCK wall panel design, are fastened horizontally to each other and vertically to column supports. Nominal sheet dimensions are 2.2m (7.2ft) x 1.1m (3.6ft). Wall panel sheets are pre-curved for each tank size to achieve the required circumference.”
Vertical Wall Panel Connections
Wall panel sheets are joined vertically using hot-dipped galvanized steel
bolts to a C-section column which supports the structural actions arising from seismic design loads. A metal cover is used to protect the bolted connection from tampering and to provide an aesthetic finish that matches the finish of the tank body material.
