Format 30 Format 30 is Tricel’s description of tanks with Heavy Duty panel covers, complete with screened vents, overflows, warning pipes etc. and having roof panels and side walls insulated with encapsulated CFC-Free polyurethane foam insulation. This meets the requirements of section 30 of the water bye laws in the majority of situations. Tanks in boiler rooms etc. may also need base insulation. Please Note: Insulation slows down but does not prevent heat loss or gain over protracted periods. Additional information is available in BS 7491 & BS 6700.

Tanks Insulated and finished to Format 30 Note: This is only an example of one type of insulation skin, there are different arrangements for different types of tanks.

Pipe Connections for Insulated Cold Water Storage Tanks The areas where pipe connections can be made on insulated tanks are more restricted than in standard tanks, the picture shows a recess in the insulation panel to allow for the pipe connection.
