The ALL NEW TecTank FP™ was designed based on the heritage of industry leading designs from Peabody TecTank, Columbian Steel Tank and Columbian TecTank®.  


TecTank FP: Dry Bulk Storage Solutions Made Simple

The new design of TecTank FP includes an optimized bolt pattern, increased steel thickness, reduced hardware and fewer penetration points.  The new jackable flat panel bolted design is superior to competitive designs and will be available in short lead time preconfigured models and fully customizable designs.

The jacking system utilized on the new TecTank FP is the first ever jacking system designed by licensed professional engineers and Proof Load Tested by a third party lab.  Tanks are jack-built from the ground up, allowing for faster construction. Expansive engineering capability and unmatched design experience make TecTank storage tank systems the best option to contain dry bulk materials.

TecTank FP silos successfully store all types of dry bulk materials including:

  • Food and Grain Products
  • Minerals and Aggregates
  • Chemicals
  • Plastics and Petrochemicals

Superior Coating Technology with Proven Performance

CST’s proprietary OptiBond™ coating process provides maximum abrasion resistance and encourages smooth material flow. Our experience has led to continuous technology and process improvements that has resulted in the finest epoxy coating process available in the industry.  The OptiBond coating process featuring Trico Bond EP® epoxy is a next generation coating system derived from years of in-field experience and performance data.

Premium Tank Technology Provides Smooth Material Flow

The smooth-wall interior has no cracks or crevices that could suspend material flow. TecTank FP storage tank systems are designed and built to the exact requirements you need for material flow efficiency and reliability.

  • Mass and funnel flow designs
  • Expanded and fluidized flow designs
  • Multiple Type Tanks


TecTank FP tanks are ideal for the following applications:

Frac Sand

TecTank FP frac sand storage systems can be built up to three-times faster than other tanks saving the end user in construction and lifecycle costs.

  • Fast construction with the least environmental footprint
  • Flexible designs with expandability options through dedicated, in-house engineering staff
  • Truck-through and train-through silos make logistics easy
  • Bolted panels and welded tanks manufactured out of carbon steel, stainless steel or aluminum
  • All tank panels are fabricated and coated in the factory


From grain silos to transfer stations to terminals, TecTank FP’s fully customizable design meets the needs of the grain storage markets around the world.


When it comes to storing dried food, foodstuffs and food ingredients, CST’s TecTank FP storage tanks and silos meet the critical demands for material flow and transferability.

Mineral, Mining and Aggregate

CST’s TecTank storage tanks and silos have been relied upon to store lime, gypsum frac sand and many other products all backed by the service and support of CST.


Dry chemicals often present coating, durability, and flow issues that require a fully engineered tank from a company with the experience and knowledge of CST and a product with the quality of TecTank FP.

Power Generation

Coal and wood mass are just a couple of the storage needs that CST’s storage tanks and silos have satisfied.

Wood and Biomass

Storing Biomass and wood mass is just the beginning of the challenge that CST’s TecTank FP storage tanks and silos are designed to meet every day.  Contact a local sales representative to learn more about your options.
