Guide Specifications – Corrugated Steel Water Tanks:


SHORT FORM


The contractor shall provide a RainFlo CGS corrugated steel water tank as shown on the drawings. The tank size, fittings and accessories shall be as shown on the drawings. The water tank system components shall be manufactured by and/or provided by RainHarvest Systems.

 

RAINFLO CORRUGATED STEEL WATER TANK SPECIFICATION
  1. The water tank shall be a RainFlo model _________ with a nominal capacity of ________ US gallons. The tank dimensions are _____’– _____” diameter, _____’ – _____” eave height, and _____’ – _____” overall height.

  2. A RainFlo water storage tank is a water storage product that uses a corrugated galvanized steel cylindrical tank in conjunction with a liquid-tight PVC liner. The tanks are built with a conical galvanized steel roof. Tanks are designed to be constructed and anchored to a concrete foundation.

  3. The tank is designed to store water with a density of 62.4 lbs./cu.ft.

  4. Wall sheets are continuous 4” pitch x ½” depth corrugated galvanized steel with a minimum yield strength of 40,000 psi and a minimum tensile strength of 55,000 psi minimum yield strength for 20 and 18 gauge sheets. All heavier gauges have a minimum tensile strength of 50,000 psi and a minimum tensile strength of 65,000 psi. The zinc coating conforms to G-115 specifications. Wall sheets have a 44” nominal coverage. Wall sheets have a coverage length of 9’ 4-1/2” long. The wall sheets are connected with GR8.2 bolts along both the vertical and horizontal seams.
    4a. Vertical seams are punched for a staggered or double row connection at 2” on center.
    4b. Horizontal seams are a single lap connection with spacing of 9-3/8”.

  5. Tanks are supplied with anchor brackets which bolt at the vertical seams and the center of the wall sheets.

  6. Water tank roofs have a 30 degree slope, are made up of self-supporting roof sheets, and are designed for 15 psf roof snow load.

    The 12’ through 48’ diameter roof panels are triangular in shape and have formed structural ribs along the radial edges to provide stiffness and strength. The 12’ through 48’ panels extend past the eave to allow for drainage and are attached to the wall sheets with top ring angle sections that bolt around the entire circumference of the tank opening.

    The 15’ through 24’ diameter roof panels are manufactured from G115 galvanized steel conforming to ASTM A563 GR33.

    The 15’ to 48’ diameter tanks come with formed steel roof ladder rungs that bolt between the roof ribs of a single panel, extending from eave to peak.

    The center opening for the 15’ through 30’ diameter tanks the opening is 33” in diameter.

    Each 15’ through 48’ diameter water tank comes complete with one roof panel complete with an inspection hatch, to be located at the eave next to the roof ladder.

    The 21’ through 48’ diameter roofs inspection hatch is circular with a 20.75” diameter.

  7. Water tanks are designed for 94 MPH (150 KPH) wind speed, UBC Exposure C.

  8. RainFlo water tanks are designed for Seismic Zone 2A. Many tanks will meet higher seismic zone loading requirements. Check with RainHarvest Systems Engineering for specifications.

  9. All bolts and nuts are galvanized with JS-500 coating. Roof bolts are hex-head and have factory installed PVC washers under a wide-flange shoulder. Wall sheet bolts have slotted round heads for ease of installation and minimal interaction with the liner.

  10. All bolts meet SAE Grade 8.2 or stronger.

  11. The liner shall be made from a flexible PVC material capable of containing water. Minimum liner thickness shall be 0.025 inches. All seams in tank liners are factory welded. The liner shall be suspended around the inside perimeter of the tank structure at the eaves with liner clips.

  12. Enhancements to meet potable water tank standards shall be provided separately.

  13. Erection and installation manuals are supplied with each tank.
