SILO POST-TENSIONING

 

Freyssinet has developed a complete range of innovative products and processes designed to support its clients and to meet the specific requirements for building containment tanks.

Advantages of using post-tensioning in tank construction:

  • it provides the required resistance to the acting forces;
  • it makes possible solutions more economic than those achievable with reinforced concrete or steel.
  • it renders the concrete virtually free of cracks.

Applications of post-tensioning in tank construction:

  • circumferential post-tensioning of walls;
  • vertical post-tensioning of walls;
  • post-tensioning of flat tank roofs;
  • post-tensioning of tank shells;
  • suspension of tank shells;
  • additional post-tensioning when repairing existing tanks.
