CROM provides a turnkey service from tank and diffuser design through complete construction of the thermal energy storage (TES) tank. The combination of the virtually maintenance-free tank and a corrosion resistant internal diffuser system ensures many years of uninterrupted service and very low life-cycle costs.
A CROM Prestressed Concrete Tank provides you with the lowest maintenance structure which will deliver years of uninterrupted service. Additionally, the internal diffuser system is designed to minimize the thermocline volume and therefore maximize the usable volume from the tank.
The internal diffuser is built at our fabrication shop under controlled conditions to ensure fast and accurate field installation. Our own specially trained and experienced construction crews construct the thermal energy storage tank on site and install the internal diffuser system.
Our standard installation includes an external insulation and finish system (EIFS). The EIF system can provide great flexibility in the final appearance of the installation and allow the CROM thermal energy storage tank to be an aesthetically pleasing symbol of your facility’s commitment to energy sustainability.
CROM has constructed over 4100 prestressed concrete tanks since 1953, and our TES record of experience consists of tanks ranging in capacity from 500 to more than 300,000 ton-hours. Allow CROM to provide you with a TES tank that will give you decades of virtually maintenance-free, uninterrupted service.
