Available in capacities up to 100,000 litres in Ø2.5m and Ø3m diameters, the Marsh range of Agri-Silage Tanks are manufactured using GRP (virgin unfilled resin - no ‘fillers’ such as chalk) providing consistent wall thickness ensuring superior structural strength and durability. This also enables the tank to be significantly lighter for on-site handling/positioning and better suited to withstand greater hydrostatic pressures when in use. The tanks are supplied with a chemically resistant gel-coat that protects the fibres in the laminates and provides excellent water and chemical resistance. This inherent integrity allows Marsh to offer an unrivalled 50 year design life, backed by a 25 year structural guarantee.

Benefits ¢ ¢ ¢ ¢ ¢ ¢

Available in capacities from 20,000 to 100,000 litres with tank diameters ranging from Ø2.5 to Ø3m Designed to meet latest UK and European standards Variable invert depths and orientations to suit individual site conditions Optional high-level alarm available Heavy duty, lightweight shells enable easy installation in all ground conditions Guaranteed for 25 years with a design life of 50 years
