Steel Tank Institute
The Acterra Group is a long standing member of the Steel Tank Institute (STI). Acterra licenses various steel tank technologies through STI including Fireguard, Flameshield, Permatank and others.
Our aboveground storage solutions include:
Flammable & Combustible Storage
Single-wall and double-wall tanks are manufactured per UL142 fabrication standards. These tanks are labeled and designed for storing flammable and combustible liquids. Manufactured as horizontal or vertical, the tank can be cylindrical or rectangular, using carbon or stainless steel. Tank capacities up to 50,000 gallons are available in single or multi-compartments.
API-12F Shop Welded Tanks
Strict quality control assures that each tank is manufactured with A-36 (commercial quality) 3/16 and 1/4 inch steel. Tanks are interior and exterior welded to API specifications and pressure tested.
Flameshield® aboveground storage tanks are manufactured with a tight-wrap double-wall design. Standard features include 2-hour fire tested performance, built-in secondary containment and interstitial monitoring capability.
F921® aboveground storage tanks are manufactured with a doublewall steel design. Standard features include built-in, testable, interstitial monitoring capability and impermeable secondary containment. The F921® delivers uncompromising performance, reliability, service and economy.
Fireguard® double-wall fire-protected aboveground storage tank features an inner and outer steel tank with a minimum of three-inch unique lightweight thermal insulation material that exceeds the UL-2085 2-hour fire test. Insulating material is 75% lighter than concrete, reducing shipping, installation and relocation costs.
Fireguard® Tanks are lightweight and come with a 30-year limited warranty. The high efficiency insulation protects the inner tank in the unlikely event of a fire or extreme heat. It is porous to allow fluid migration through the interstice to the monitoring point. Both horizontal and vertical tanks are available.
Wireless Tank Monitoring
Our underground storage solutions include:
PERMATANK® double-wall jacketed underground storage tank features an inner steel tank coupled with an exterior corrosion resistant fiberglass tank. A unique standoff material separating the inner and outer tanks creates a uniform interstitial space ensuring rapid and accurate leak detection.
Gravity Oil Water Separators are designed for gravity-induced separation of oil from water. The separators are designed for gravity removal of non-emulsified hydrocarbons, i.e., motor oils, lightweight oils and related petroleum products with a specific gravity of less than 1.0.
Double-wall underground storage tank features a pre-engineered corrosion protection system that provides ongoing monitoring of corrosion protection. The sti-P3® system has provided reliable, long-term performance for over 265,000 steel underground storage tanks.
ACT-100® Steel/FRP composite tank features a strong steel tank for structural integrity, and a 100-mil fiberglass outer coating for longlasting corrosion protection. Double-wall design allows continuous interstitial leak detection and monitoring.

Our manufacturing division works with a variety of customers in the fabrication of steel products. Storage silos, asphalt tank systems, vats, hoppers, insulated systems and steel parts for OEMs are just some of the specialized products we can, and have, fabricated. If you need something built from carbon or stainless steel, the Manufacturing Division of Acterra can be of service.
Our manufacturing division works with a variety of industries to meet unique storage needs. We have supplied tanks and silos for many different applications including cement, feed, plastics, fertilizers and chemicals to name a few. We can design and build what you need no matter what the application and environment.
Acterra Group offers both vertical and horizontal asphalt storage tanks that keep heat loss to a minimum at a reasonable cost. Our tanks are built to order and can be configured to suit your exact needs. Many options are available, including the components for mixing. Our asphalt storage tanks feature:
- Fiberglass insulation
- Overflow protection
- Heating coils
- Internal bulkheads
- Heater, unloading pump and mixer options available
Aboveground Tank Inspections
Acterra provides above-ground tank inspections through the Steel Tank Institute’s SP001 Standard. Inspection of above-ground storage tanks (ASTs) can be a critical compliance issue under the planning requirements of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s rule for Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure (SPCC). Steel Tank Institute in 2000 released the first version of Standard for the Inspection of Above-ground Storage Tanks – the STI SP001 standard – which provides a means for AST owners to comply with EPA mandates. The standard, now in its fifth edition, has been updated by consensus of tank owners, tank manufacturers and other industry leaders.
