Advantages of Pillow Tanks

Pillow tanks are collapsible fabric tanks that resemble a pillow when filled.  These type bladder tanks are made by welding or sealing durable fabric around all four sides and adding valves for filling, emptying and pressure relief.

There are a number of benefits to pillow tanks, and many of these are highlighted below:

  • Sizes can range from small (25 gallons) to very large (25,000 gallons)
  • Storage space is minimized when not in use - empty pillow tanks lay flat and can be rolled or folded to require less storage space than an equivalent rigid tank
  • Small storage space also makes pillow tanks more portable, making them ideal for deployment in remote locations
  • Pillow tanks can significantly weigh less than many similar sized rigid tanks
  • Fabric selection allows tanks to be customized for specific applications (e.g. Fuel Bladders, Potable Water Tanks, Chemical Tanks, Gray Water Storage)
  • Liquid stored in pillow tanks is completely enclosed, eliminating contamination or spillage
  • Fabrics are durable and long-lasting and can be repaired quickly on-site with a repair kit
  • Seam welds are stronger than the fabric itself
  • A wide range of valves are available
  • Pillow tanks can be made quickly to meet tight deadlines
  • Compatible hoses, valves, pumps, and filters can be supplied as needed - per customer specifications
