Cookson & Zinn design and manufacture bespoke single skin and integrally bunded rectangular tanks complying with British Standards BS799-5:2010, type J & K
We manufacture a wide range of above-ground rectangular single skin, integrally bunded or open bunded tanks in carbon and stainless steel.
Tanks are manufactured in accordance with BS.799 part 5:2010. Due to the bespoke nature of many of our tanks, there are occasions when we use elements of other codes and ‘good engineering practice’ to meet our customer’s need.
Our Rectangular tanks are manufactured to meet the exact requirements of each site, allowing flexibility in the height, width, and length of the tank to meet the volume required.
We manufacture single skin and bunded tanks up to a capacity of 250,000 litres,
