What is a Pillow Tank?
Pillow tanks and bladder tanks are self-supporting, flexible containers that can be used to store all types of liquids. Pillow tanks are tough, portable, and easy to install. This makes them ideal for temporary storage use or where it is difficult or too costly to build a more permanent solution.
We offer a range of standard range of pillow tanks as outlined below. Pillow tanks will fold down to 1/10th of their filled size, making them exceptionally friendly to the environment and suitable to be installed virtually anywhere.
Flexitank offer a range of 14 standardised pillow tank solutions that cover standard capacities from 1,200 litres (317 USG) to 460,000 litres (121,519USG)
Note: These sizes should be used as an indication only; sizes will be confirmed once the liquid and application are confirmed with Flexitank.

Flexible pillow tanks are manufactured from a wide range of polymeric materials, and are often the best option for a variety of fluids suited to many varying applications.
Pillow tanks also provide the additional benefit that in many site applications, lengthy and expensive approvals to install pillow tanks is not required. Additionally, as they easily pack up, pillow tanks can be removed from any site with ease, reducing overhead costs and helping to adhere to strict EPA requirements in many fields.
Experts in manufacturing of pillow tanks, Flexitank generally work off a square design style to ensure maximum stability in all applications and the best volume to area ratio.
All pillow tanks need a flat, clear area to be correctly setup, and are each supplied with a groundsheet to assist with proper function during filling. For sensitive fluids, Flexitank recommend a suitable berm liner in case of emergency. The berm liner can be fabricated to exact sizes for the volume of the pillow tank.
