Break Tank System
The ParkUSA BreakTankTM is a packaged water storage system complete with tank, controls, and fill valves. A BreakTank is a necessary component in multilevel buildings to provide adequate water needs for Fire, Domestic, & Irrigation applications.
ParkUSA has fabricated BreakTanks for more than 25 years in accordance with the American Welding Society Specifications, AISC, NFPA, and the Uniform Building Code.
The fabrication of reliable and durable products requires knowledge, experience and investment. The Engineering team at ParkUSA designs break-tanks that are fabricated for project specifications and size requirements to meet all individual needs. Complete fabrication is performed at our Houston plant with certified material and personnel. Factory coating and abrasive blasting are performed in our new High-Tech blast/paint facility, offering excellent corrosion and abrasion resistance.
The current models for the ParkUSA Break Tank are detailed below.
- Fire Break-Tank
The ParkUSA Fire Break-Tank is a system designed to provide quick access to water, which is to be used in fire events or disaster relief. Nowadays, building codes and guidelines require a compressive fire prevention and control system. This unit aims to provide the solution on a control system for immediate assistance during a fire event in any type of multilevel buildings. Several advantages come from the ParkUSA Fire Break-Tank, including:
- Multilevel building use
- Immediate water accessibility
- Water storage
- Eliminates Backflow potential
- Prevent contamination on city water supply
- Domestic Break-Tank
The domestic Break-TankTM is utilized for multilevel buildings where water storage is required to prevent low system water pressure and damage to public water lines. Many cities are prohibiting from pumping directly from the city water mains to prevent low system water pressure and damage to public water lines. The break-tank enables water storage and supply for the building’s use. The break tank also helps eliminate potential contamination of city water supply by providing a physical “air-gap” between the city water service and the building. It eliminates the back-syphonage or backflow potential of water back to the city service.
- Combination Break-Tank
The combination BreakTankTM is divided by a partition with one compartment for fire protection water and the other for potable water (only where domestic storage is utilized). The partition is a double walled and extends to the top of the tank. Each wall of the partition is sealed with a continuous weld between the wall and four sides of the tank.
Many cities prohibit pumping directly from the city water mains to prevent low system water pressure and damage to public water lines. The break-tank enables water storage and supply for the building’s use while eliminating the potential for contamination of the city water supply. By providing a physical “air-gap” between the city water service and the building, this product eliminates the potential of back-syphonage and backflow to the city service lines.
