Presently, plastic, galvanized, mild steel and concrete tanks are used for storage of water for drinking purpose. Over time due to degradation of tank walls (growth of fungus, rusting etc), the water from these tanks become unfit or unhygienic for drinking purpose. The main reason being inability to clean the tanks regularly and thoroughly. The other main disadvantage of the above mentioned tanks is that it is a porous material; so automatic it helps growth of bacteria, fungus and algae. Hence the mentioned method of storage of water for portable purpose is very harmful for human consumption.
Most people recognise stainless steel as a robust material. It can be found in nearly every home in the world over. We at Al Ameen Engineering have been doing Stainless Steel fabrication for quite sometime.
Stainless steel is a strong and hygienic material, well suited to the being made into storage water tanks. They can withstand some of the harshest weather conditions that the UAE climate can throw at them. An extended service life combined with reduced maintenance costs will mean that your stainless tank will cost less than other comparable water storage tanks. Stainless steel storage tanks are also useful for storage of milk, foods, beverages, chemicals and pharmaceuticals.
Advantages of the Stainless Steel Water Tanks from Al Ameen Engineering:-
1, Heat resistant - will not warp or deform under direct sunlight.
2, No growth of bacteria in the stored water.
3, Leak proof - longer life span makes it one time investment.
4, Light weight & easy to install in the long run saves money.
5, Unique design - prevents insects from entering & contaminating the water.
6, Ideal for storage of potable water used in residential & commercial.
7, No rise in temperature of stored water by sunlight due to mirror finish material.
8, The material of construction is the most preferred material for use in the Food & Pharma Industries.
9, Available in different capacities ranging from 250 ltrs. to 3000 ltrs.
10, Does not rust or corrode hence water is hygienically clean.

Thousands of tons of goods are transported in Middle East and Africa via land than railways as new roads are being developed at a faster pace than railways. Any efficiency in the area of land transport shall save government and private sector thousands of pounds in fuel and maintenance costs. Our company have noticed close to 75% of the vehicles made in MENA region (Middle East and Africa) are inefficently made i.e a 40 ton semi-trailer weighs 4300 kgs which can easily be reduced to 3675 kg of weight thus saving almost 500 kg of unladen weight which can inefficeintly eat up the fuel and wear the tires in long run.
