When storing pharmaceuticals, it is without a doubt important to make sure that storage tanks are safe and contaminant free. For a long time, this was largely left up to exclusively stainless steel tanks. However, it doesn’t necessarily need to be this way! Stainless steel tanks generally require special, and costly, coatings to work properly at containing pharmaceuticals. Depending on your needs, Fiberglass pharmaceutical tanks may potentially be a great, and cost effective option.
One of the most important features in pharmaceutical storage tanks is making sure that bacterial growth cannot occur. Making sure to choose a storage tank that doesn’t contain porous or poorly designed areas that could harbor bacteria or other contaminants is key to customizing a good Pharmaceutical storage tank. Storage tanks that will be used for pharmaceuticals should also be well-designed. One thing to consider is proper drainage. Properly customized pharmaceutical tanks will have complete and easy drainage, which can help cut down on waste and potential contamination.
Something else to consider when designing a tank for pharmaceuticals, is the idea of secondary containment. Secondary containment offers an extra layer of insurance against potentially hazardous and wasteful pharmaceutical leaks. A potential pharmaceutical chemical leak can be dangerous for human and environmental health, and should be avoided at all costs. Additionally, something not to be overlooked, is that tanks equipped with secondary containment offer an extra layer of protection against contamination for the pharmaceuticals housed inside the tanks.
Customizing tanks for pharmaceuticals is all about maintaining human and environmental safety, as well as making sure no contamination occurs to the pharmaceutical chemicals.
