Water Bladder Tank to Hold Heated Water
FAQ: Can a 50 gallon blivet tank hold heated water?
Looking for a 50 gallon blivet tank to hold heated water? See options for this and cold water storage.
Question: I am looking for a 50 gallon blivet tank that can hold heated water at about 100 degrees F. Do you have anything like that?
I am doing research for a solar powered portable tank for a customer and I am having trouble finding something that holds only 50 gallons that will be OK at 100 degrees. I see that you have the low temperature listed but not the high temp listed on the specification sheet for your materials.
Answer:Thank you for contacting us! Collapsible Water Bladder, also known as pillow tanks or blivets, are an excellent choice for this type of storage. We do offer tanks in smaller sizes, such as 50 gallons that can be used for this type of storage. These tanks are durable and have been used to store heated water, such as water with a temperature of around 100 F.
In your case, we would be happy to manufacture a tank for you that can hold hot water of 100 F and still gives you continuous performance. We have provided tanks in many fabric options, including ones that meet military specifications.
