Pressurized steel tanks
- Sun exposure and UV rays.
- Saline climate and humidity.
- Acid rain.
ALTAMIRA PRO is designed to withstand outdoor applications where moisture can penetrate standard paint coatings applied over conventional steel tanks and cause corrosion.
It is coated with a zinc-based “sacrificial” paint which provides a self-protection backing. If the coating is damaged, the zinc prevents the steel from corroding.
It resists ultraviolet (UV) rays from sunlight that fade the original color of the paint used on conventional steel tanks and also crack and chip tanks constructed of fiber.
It is tested for exposure to a salt solution according to ASTM B117-73 for twice as long as standard tanks.
It has a stainless steel elbow, polypropylene inner cover and butyl diaphragm so that water never comes in contact with the parts subject to corrosion.

|20 and 26 gallon tanks:
Maximum working pressure: 100 Psi.
Maximum working temperature: 93 °C.
Tanks from 44 to 119 gallons:
Maximum Working Pressure : 125 Psi.
Maximum Working Temperature: 93 °C.
Load pressure 38 Psi.
|IMPORTANT NOTES :
1. Always make sure BEFORE INSTALLING that the tank pre-charge pressure is two pounds less than the pump start pressure.FAILURE TO DO SO MAY DESTROY THE TANK DIAPHRAGM AND VOID THE WARRANTY.
2. A high pressure differential between pump start and stop (more than 25 Psi or 1.75 kg/cm2) reduces the diaphragm vity of the tank.
