Storage Tanks

Storage tanks are containers that hold liquids, compressed gases (gas tank; or in U.S.A “pressure vessel”, which is not typically labeled or regulated as a storage tank) or mediums used for the short- or long-term storage of heat or cold. The term can be used for reservoirs and for manufactured containers.

Pressure Vessel

A pressure vessel is a container designed to hold gases or liquids at a pressure substantially different from the ambient pressure.
