CROM has designed and built over 4300 prestressed concrete tanks since 1953, with capacities ranging from 50,000 to over 30,000,000 gallons. The success of CROM has been based on our understanding of all phases of design, construction, and management required to produce a tank that is leak-free with life expectancies in excess of 50 years. CROM tanks are designed to AWWA D110 and ACI 372 standards. As a founding member of both design committees, CROM remains a “leader in the industry”.
CROM adheres to the highest standards of professional engineering and construction. Tank structures are design and built in compliance with applicable sections of:
All design drawings and calculations prepared by CROM are signed and sealed by of one of the company’s full-time registered professional engineers.
CROM specializes in the design of thin-shell concrete structures, a unique subset of structural engineering design. This expertise allows us to maximize the natural physical properties of concrete and steel to design durable, efficient and low-maintenance prestressed concrete tanks. The design of our tanks considers various load conditions such as backfill and seismic design.
When it is necessary to understand the unique flow or mixing characteristics inside a tank due to piping geometry or baffle configurations, CROM can help clients by performing Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analyses. This analysis simulates the fluid flow, heat transfer, and time-dependent flow of the liquid inside tank to assess water circulation patterns and identify the potential for stagnation in the reservoir.
CROM provides complete tank construction services to avoid any division of responsibility. Having your tank built by specialized experts provides you the highest quality tank designed and built for long-term performance.
