A composite storage tank is built which has double wall characteristics. A method of building the tank comprises the steps of applying a viscous resinous core material to a support surface and then winding onto, into or along with the viscous resinous core material discrete filament bundles. The resinous core material encapsulates the filament bundles, but does not significantly penetrate into an interior of the bundles. The substantially resin-free interiors provide flow paths for the ready detection of wall leakage. The resultant composite storage tank...
A composite storage tank having double wall characteristics, comprising: (a) a cylindrical-shaped tank wall of a resinous core material and discrete filament bundles extending continuously within the tank wall, wherein the resinous core material encapsulates the filament bundles, yet does not significantly penetrate into the filament bundles so that interiors of the filament bundles are substantially resin-free; and (b) end caps at each end of the cylindrical-shaped tank wall to form the storage tank.
