Bespoke Buffer Tanks

We take pride in delivering bespoke buffer tank solutions that stand the test of time, turning thermal storage visions into reality – from design to delivery. As bespoke buffer tank specialists, we can supply customised tank solutions designed and built for job-specific applications that address our client’s challenges seamlessly. Our bespoke but cost-effective buffer tanks are ideal for various applications, including larger biomass projects, district heating, waste-to-energy plants, CHP (Combined Heat & Power) systems and chilled water systems (e.g. large data centres).

Our bespoke buffer tanks are precision-built using only the highest quality materials. Our manufacturing facility is equipped with the latest machinery and skilled craftspeople, ensuring precision and attention to detail in every step of the tank production process. Every element, from intricate machining to precision welding, is perfectly crafted, adhering to the highest industry standards. They are typically manufactured from mild steel (usually 5mm thickness / SJ275R grade for the main body and 6mm for the dish ends) and rated to 3 bar (up to 10 bar if required). The tanks are finished with a steel cladding in a selection of available RAL colour finishes or aluminium stucco to minimise heat losses (initial thermal K factor 0.023 W/m K. Initial U-value 0.22 W/m2 K) and a metal outer skin for increased durability during installation and service. Before leaving the factory, all bespoke tanks are individually tested to the European Pressure Equipment Directive (PED).

We can support you with system design advice, and all our tanks are tailor-made to suit customer requirements. Tanks and vessels of up to 200,000 litres are possible with our bespoke design and manufacture service. Even manufacturing small bespoke tanks from only 100-litre capacity is possible if you cannot find an off-the-shelf tank solution to meet your exact requirements.

All tank specifications are fully customisable to meet the exact project requirements; for example, baffles and coils can be added to link to existing systems and heat loads. Flow and return connections can also be selected to meet customer requirements with different sizes, for example, Female BSP threads or equivalent with flange connections.

Our recent bespoke tank projects include designing and delivering 300,000 litres of thermal storage for Shawfair Energy Centre and 40,000 litres of chilled storage for a creamery in Wales.
