Dynatect developed and patented the ChemTank Cover in response to the demand for convenient and space-saving chemical tank covers. Tank covers help contain evaporative emissions. The ChemTank is a corrosion-resistant roll up cover system that helps control heat and evaporation. It consists of a PVDF-coated PVC shade (0.021″ thick) and compatible hardware for higher corrosive and higher temperature applications.
With chemical and surface finishing processes in mind, the cover was designed for a wide variety of process tanks applications including: chemicals, anodizing, etching, plating, cleaning and more.
Are you losing productivity by manually covering chemical tanks?
Are you losing energy efficiency due to heating open tanks?
Is your current solution for covering tanks less than ideal?
Do you have an initiative to improve the work environment or air quality?
The chemical-resistant roll-up, ChemTank Cover can address all these issues.
Improve Ergonomics and Save Space
Considering ergonomics and the necessity to contain hazardous fumes, ChemTank may appeal as a regulatory countermeasure. With a roll-up design that’s easily opened and closed, operators need not struggle with manually lifting and adjusting panels, which also pose a splash risk. The roll-up design also eliminates the quandary of where to store manual cover panels.

Custom Tank Covers
Although there are several types of tank cover available, roll-up type covers are the most versatile and practical for batch-type process tanks, and the roll-up design takes up little extra space when retracted.
A metal roll-up cover can add protection against objects falling into the tank.
Motorization makes it easy and efficient to open and close covers of almost any size. Dynatect has designed customized tank cover systems with options for motors, controls, PLC interface, or diagnostic switches. Custom tanks equipped with a motor drive can offer full electric control for forward, reverse and stop functions.
A scroll-type take-up mechanism is also available, for example:
Shades are constructed of continuous stainless steel top surface with aluminum or stainless steel support ribs for large tanks. The example below reflects a metal shade with support ribs and added bearing wheels. Dynatect can also supply the rails for the cover, if requested.
