FAQs MS and SS Tanks:
Q1. What is the difference between MS and SS tanks?
Ans. MS tanks are made of mild steel, which is a carbon steel with low carbon content. SS tanks are made of stainless steel, which contains chromium for corrosion resistance. The primary difference is that SS is more corrosion-resistant than MS.
Q2. When should I choose an MS tank over an SS tank?
Ans. MS tanks are suitable for applications where corrosion resistance is not a critical factor. They are often more cost-effective than SS tanks and can be used in many non-corrosive environments.
Q3. When should I choose an SS tank over an MS tank?
Ans. SS tanks are preferred when corrosion resistance is essential, such as in industries involving chemicals, food, pharmaceuticals, and marine environments. They are also chosen for applications requiring high hygiene standards.
Q4. What are the common applications for MS and SS tanks?
Ans. MS and SS tanks are used for water storage, chemical storage, food and beverage processing, pharmaceutical manufacturing, oil and gas storage, wastewater treatment, and more.
Q5. What are the different sizes and capacities of MS and SS tanks?
Ans. MS and SS tanks come in various sizes and capacities, ranging from small laboratory tanks to large industrial tanks with capacities in millions of liters or gallons.
Q6. How do I choose the right material and size for my tank?
Ans. The choice of material and size depends on the specific requirements of your application. Consider factors such as the nature of the stored material, space availability, and regulatory requirements when making your selection.
