COMMERCIAL WATER TANK LINERS

We Understand the Importance of Liner Longevity

All Pioneer Water Tanks liners are uniquely secured to the tank wall at multiple points to provide optimal support for the liner.  This support prevents the liner from pulling away form the tank wall and secures it in position.  The result:  less stress on the liner and prolonged service life of your tank.

UNIQUE SECURED LINER

Aqualiner FRESH® and Industratex® have been exclusively developed and manufactured for Pioneer Water Tanks  to provide a water tight liquid storage membrane.


Strength, flex resistance, abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, water proofing and leak proofing have been considered in the design of Aqualiner FRESH® and Industratex®.  Both liners can be custom manufactured for the relining of existing concrete, steel and other types of water tanks.


Primarily intended for potable water storage, your tank liner can be adapted for a variety of non-potable water grades including grey treated, bore, ground or well water.

LINER TERMS & DEFINITIONS

Tensile Strength

Strength of material, measured by tensioning a 50mm wide sample in both directions - warp and weft.  Result is the forces measured in Newtons (N) at the point at which the material breaks.

Wing Tear

Force (N) necessary to tear a sample of the material in the warp and weft weave direction.  Warp test is measured by tearing in the weft direction and visa versa for the weft tear.

Flume (water proof test)

A fabricated test sample (tube is increasingly pressurised with water until the material leaks). Measurement and inspections are conducted at regular intervals and recorded.

Elongation

During tensile test a stretch measurement is taken prior to material breaking.

Coating Adhesion

Force (N) needed to separate a 50mm wide sample lamination (coating) from the weave.

Flex Cracking

Measured by flexing material until it deteriorates (measured in cycles).

Warp

Threads stretched in a loom

Weft

Threads that cross the warp.

Tongue Tear

Similar test to wing tear, parallel cuts are made to the material to create a "tongue".  Force (N) is applied tearing the material.  Warp is measured by tearing in the weft direction and visa versa for the weft tear.
