Lipp Tanks

Lipp Double-Folded Tanks

Lipp tanks have been on the market for over 45 years with a unique design, built from the ground up using a patented double-fold system.
The installation involves interlinking steel bands by folding through a special profiling and folding machine. The double-fold system creates an edge-less and smooth finish that guarantees maximum tightness and stability, resulting in minimum surface area for corrosive materials.

In addition to the folding technique, tanks can also be automatically welded during the same construction process in order to supply tanks suitable many substrates applicable to a wide range of induestires:

  • Waste water treatment plants
  • Anaerobic digestion technology
  • Bulk material storage
  • Liquids storage
  • Drinking water tanks
  • Special tanks and bulk silos


A wide range of steel types are available depending on tank substrate.

Stainless steel is expensive and theunique Lipp developed VERINOX – duplex material layer system – allows for a smooth stainless steel interior joined to galvanised steel by means of a separation layer.
Any grade of stainless steel can be used depending on tank medium with the
Verinox system having many advantages:

  • Substantial cost savings
  • Complete corrosive resistant surface
  • Customisable steel grades depending on requirements
  • No open sheet joints due to folded design


  • Fast on-site installation time and only requires one specialist and two competent assistants for tank installation
  • Very flexible in terms of substrate composition and suitable for a wide range of liquid and solid materials
  • Durable and very low maintenance
  • Wide range of roof configurations
