Manufacturing – National Company – Melbourne


Below are details of the work Bushmans Tanks have completed in the water treatment field.

State VIC



The customer is a national company, based in Melbourne. They offer service and assembly operation for a major national heavy duty automotive business. The markets they operate in include automotive, construction, industrial/locomotive, marine mining, oil and gas, and power generation. They are manufacturers of filtration systems including air, exhaust, diesel emissions, lube, cooling, and hydraulic systems. 

Project concept

The client’s challenge was to find a company that would fabricate resistant and durable tanks, so they could store their four different products:

  • BENZOIC ACID 16% in PG
  • Sodium Hydroxide
  • Deionised Water

They also required the tanks to be installed in a bunded area and plumbed into the site systems. Bushmans challenge was to make sure the production manager was 100% involved in the project to guarantee the production line, from powder purchase to oven adjustment was running according to the client’s request.


Products manufactured 

T3300 1,500L with a SG1.5SG rating  

TT560IND 22,500L with a 1.5 SG rating 

T10500IND 46,500L with a SG1.2 rating 







Bushmans experts studied the area and designed the tanks to fit into the bunded area, respecting the plumbing spaces.

The tanks were manufactured from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) which provides excellent chemical resistance and strength.

The delivery team planned the logistic to drop the tanks with safety, making sure the installation was done correctly to avoid failures in the site operating systems.The client received tanks that were strong and robust providing secure storage of their hazardous chemicals.
