Critical changes ahead for plastic tank manufacturers

New industry tank standard offers a quality compliant guarantee on plastic water and chemical storage tanks

Association of Rotational Moulders of Southern Africa The Association of Rotational Moulders of Southern Africa (ARMSA) announced a new South African industry tank standard for polyethylene chemical and water storage tanks.

The SANS 1731:2017 standard, developed in conjunction with the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS), offers a warranty to members of the broader construction, plumbing, architecture and design, landscaping and built industry as well as to home owners that tank manufacturers conform to world best practise.

Productivity Engineering Services and Consultants (PESC), an independent auditing company appointed by ARMSA, will regularly audit tank manufacturers and issue SANS 1731:2017 certificates to those who comply.
