An underground storage tank (UST) is a tank and any underground piping connected to the tank that has at least 10% of its combined volume underground. Underground storage tanks are used for the storage of a wide variety of liquids. Up until the mid 1980’s, the majority of underground storage tanks were made of bare steel which were likely to corrode over time allowing the contents to leak into the environment.
Gilsulate 500XR is used to insulate and protect various types of underground storage tanks. In 1992 a double thermal ice storage tank system for Austin High School in Minnesota was designed and installed with Gilsulate 500XR. The tanks were 10 feet by 40 feet and were installed under a parking lot. This nearly three decade storage tank system is still in operation today!
