Another product offering Structa Technology specialises in is the Roddy Tank, which is ideally suited to smaller villages, schools and clinics in rural areas.
It is therefore also well suited to mining exploration projects.
The Roddy Tank is a sectional, round, galvanised water storage tank that offers 3 900 ℓ, 7 200 ℓ and 10 000 ℓ capacities.
Structa Technology’s customisable, high-quality pressed-steel sectional tanks are hot-dip galvanised for corrosion control in accordance with SANS 121 (or ISO 1461) galvanising standards.
The thickness of the hot-dip galvanised coat is applied within a range of 80 μm to 100 μm – more than five times that of zinc on pre-galvanised corrugated steel cylindrical tanks.
This ensures an extended maintenance-free life when water with aggressively corrosive properties needs to be stored.
