Tank Topples in Topsham, ME December 06, 2019
Tank Topples in Topsham, ME

Steel tanks present a variety of methods of possible dismantling. Shorter tanks, such as oil tanks, lend themselves well to mechanical dismantling using a shear. Multi-legged elevated water tanks oftentimes require the use of a crane and manual disassembly with cutting torches.

By cutting an opening near the base of the tank, gravity will do the rest of the work and the tank will fall in the direction of the cut.
