Bladder Tanks

A bladder tank is a type of pressure vessel that contains a flexible inner bladder made of a material such as rubber or plastic. The bladder is often connected to a pump or other pressurization system, which can be used to fill the tank with pressurized fluid as needed. Bladder tanks are often used in industrial, commercial, and residential settings for a variety of purposes, including water storage, air compression, and fire suppression.

Advantages of a bladder tank over a traditional pressure tank:

  • Flexibility: The flexible material used in the construction of a bladder tank allows it to expand and contract as the liquid level inside the tank changes. This helps to maintain a constant pressure within the system, regardless of changes in the liquid level.
  • Space-saving: Bladder tanks take up less space than traditional pressure tanks because they are not limited by the size of the air or nitrogen chamber.
  • Low maintenance: Bladder tanks have an internal bladder which is sealed and does not require any maintenance, this is different from pressure tanks which have a diaphragm or air chamber that needs to be checked and maintained.
  • Compatibility: Bladder tanks are compatible with a wide range of liquids, including potable water, non-potable water, and chemicals.
  • Safety: Bladder tanks are less likely to rupture or explode compared to pressure tanks, which are at risk of failure due to corrosion or overpressure.
  • Durability: Bladder tanks are typically made from a high-quality, durable material that is designed to withstand the rigors of long-term use.
