The Frozen Tank Story Continues

by Esther
(Boise, ID)

Here at Boise State University, we’ve been using the portable high-sided onion tank in a cold room experiment (see our previous blog entry!) with temperatures as low as -30° C and as high as +32°C. The tank has proven exemplary in all conditions!

The Onion Tank Before Freezing Process

The Tank Surrounded by Radar Absorbing Foam

We filled the tank, and then surrounded it with insulation and radar absorbing foam, since we only want to freeze from the top down. The radar absorbing foam will help with our radar testing. The tank has proven very durable, as it has already been through several freeze/thaw cycles and has maintained its structural integrity and been easy to work with.

In addition, the continued support from Portable Tanks, a division of GEI Works has been awesome –we’re looking to purchase in inflatable bladder-style tank to use in conjunction with this onion tank experiment, and Portable Tanks, a division of GEI Works continues to work with us and help us through the process. We’re excited to keep these experiments going and to continue to be a loyal customer of the Portable Tanks, a division of GEI Works!
