Modern agriculture requires tanks that can be kept at exact temperatures. These tanks require insulation to keep liquids cool, reduce the amount of heat loss, and store fertilizer or other chemicals. While a number of different types of insulation can be used in agriculture, not all tank insulation systems are equal. A perfect option for insulating your agricultural tanks is the RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Panel Insulation System, an insulation system that provides a number of benefits over traditional tank insulation methods.
Insulating Processing and Storage Tanks
During the processing of juices, wines, and other liquids, the internal temperature of the tank can greatly affect the taste and the lifespan of the contents. Contents stored in tanks that have no climate control or insulation maybe subject to extreme heat or cold.
In cases of extreme heat, the tank contents can quickly spoil, while extreme cold can cause liquids to freeze and become unusable. Temperature fluctuation can also result in faster spoiling. Using RIDGLOK® panel insulation systems for agriculture product storage will prevent this from happening and reduce the amount of energy it takes to maintain the desired temperature.
Livestock Waste and Anaerobic Digester Storage Tanks
RIDGLOK® is also useful in other areas of agriculture, such as waste storage and biogas production. Livestock waste can be collected and placed in airtight tanks known as anaerobic digesters. Various bacteria are then added to these tanks in order to speed up the decomposition of the waste. The tank’s interior temperature impacts how quickly the waste is broken down. Efficient insulation will keep the internal temperature stable and allow the bacteria to process the waste more effectively and help the methane gas produce. All anaerobic digester tanks need to be insulated to aid in the process, making RIDGLOK® panel insulation systems a crucial piece to this renewable energy process.
Why Choose RIDGLOK® Panel Insulation System?
The RIDGLOK® Panel Insulation System is considered one of the best forms of tank insulation for use in agriculture because of its durability, efficiency, and flexibility. It is a cost-effective insulation system that can be installed quickly, saving time and money on the project. No maintenance is needed on the system because the double folded standing seams keep weather elements out of the insulation system. The RIDGLOK® Panel Insulation System has an internal attachment system and is engineered to withstand up to 95 mph winds.
