The history of steel tanks

photo – the first steel tanks near Gusher oil well in Pennsylvania in 1859.

Steel tanks were created in 1859 and had to displace their wooden brothers, and all this by the creation of the first oil well Gusher in Pennsylvania. Refining and car industries developed very quickly, which resulted in the need for modernization of steel tanks which were used primarily for storage and transport of fuel.
Nowadays steel tanks are used in virtually all categories of industry, starting from food industry, through pharmaceutical industry, ending up with energy industry.
