Some of the colors we have requested leave me scratching my head. We've done a few pink ones, and now I get it. Fits right in! Out with the old; in with the new. This is an 8' x 24" 10,000 Gallon Pressure Vessel. Thanks for choosing Bulldog Steel for your hydropneumatic pressure tanks! And for the pics!
We were asked to evaluate a tank about a mile from this location. I see this Standpipe in the distance, and knew there was a better than average chance Bulldog Steel built it. Yep! Built in 1988. So I ran Bulldog 1 up the tank to check condition. Why does a municipality want a welded steel Standpipe or Ground Storage Tank built by Bulldog Steel? Because just like this 22' x 120' 341,000 gallon Standpipe, they are... built to last!
This 290 psi pressure vessel has an exterior coating of Rhino Liner - unusual for a pressure vessel around much of the US, but this vessel is being buried due to the extreme temperatures. However... this tank reminded me of some tanks that we built a number of years ago for San Antonio, TX. They had noticed an extreme amount of condensation from the air conditioners of some of the schools. San Antonio is one of the best water conservation locations in the nation, and they had an idea to pipe that condensation to pressure vessels (that we built and they buried) and use the water for irrigation. What a great idea!
An engineer asked us to show an example of an umbrella roof for a job he was designing. We built this one two years ago - before we had a drone to take this kind of footage. So I went back and got some video of this 310k gallon Ground Storage Tank. The roof looks great!
Richard felt nostalgic today, and wrote (inside a pressure vessel can) the history of Bulldog Steel that he could remember during the... THIRTY SEVEN years of working here. There was a break in that time, but as of today, he has been here 29 consecutive years! Quality people make Bulldog Steel a quality company, and Richard continues to be a big part of Bulldog. Thanks for everything, Richard!
