Nearly two decades ago, Terracon introduced our TerraPure Tanks for ultrapure water (UPW) storage. In the years since, this has become the de facto standard of the RO/DI industry. Back then, the concept of designing a building to withstand an earthquake was not on the minds of people outside the construction industries here in the northeast corner of our country. We sometimes heard hints about seismic restraint systems from our customers in California, but there was not a lot of conversation about it.
Over the years, this has become a more important issue, obviously on the west coast of North America, but also throughout the plains states and even up in New England. During the late 1990s and the first few years of the new century, we received quite a few requests for TerraPure tanks with seismic restraints. At the time we were not able to help those customers.
Things change and we have changed, too. We focused on interpreting the ever-changing UBC standards, finding the right design, and producing the third-party approved seismic restraint system for TerraPure. People asked for it and we now have it!
TerraPure tanks are now available with restraint systems that comply with building codes throughout our hemisphere: dry-stamp, wet-stamp, site-specific, or any other designation you require .
TerraPure is now the only roto molded polyethylene or polypropylene tank system designed and customized specifically for use as a reservoir for your RO or DI water system in the highest risk seismic zones in the world. If you need it, we've got it. We're ready to help you. Contact us anytime you need to ensure your tank stays put.
