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.
