Temcor, founded in 1964, designs, manufactures and erects architectural and environmental enclosures. These are primarily clear-span domes and related space frames fabricated mostly from aluminum. Temcor structures are used for covering tankage of all types as well as architectural applications such as arenas, gymnasiums, theaters and auditoriums.
Superior Engineering & Service
More than thirty-five years of pioneering design and engineering is built into every Temcor Product. More than 6,000 Temcor domes have been installed throughout the world. Most importantly, our structures have withstood the test of time even in the harshest environments. Behind these structures is a remarkable company.
Temcor built the first aluminum dome for a water storage tank in 1968, for a wastewater tank in 1969, for a petroleum tank in 1977 and the world's largest free standing aluminum dome measuring 127 meters in diameter in 1982. All of these are still in service, as are other Temcor domes withstanding the heat of a Middle Eastern desert, typhoon winds of 300 kilometers per hour on a Pacific Island and uneven snow loads of 1,500 kilograms per square meter in the Antarctic. Research and Development receives major emphasis at Temcor.
Temcor products are precision fabricated to aircraft tolerances. Time-tested maintenance-free corrosion-resistant materials are used, such as proven aluminum alloys, stainless steel fasteners and silicone rubber sealants and gaskets.
Protecting Resources and the Environment
Water, wastewater plants and storage facilities are increasingly turning to the Temcor Aluminum advantage. In addition to low maintenance, low cost and low profile advantages, Temcor Aluminum Domes are versatile enough to permit a wide range of accessories important to the water and wastewater industry.
And, it's the dome's design that gives it many of its advantages. Using proprietary variations of geodesic geometry, Temcor Aluminum Domes are noted for their ability to meet exacting live load requirements by providing greater stiffness and strength, pound-for-pound, than any other dome geometry system.
Temcor domes have been designed for snow loads up to 165 pounds per square foot and windloads of up to 150mph. And Temcor's panel design is specifically engineered to support loads of up to 500 pounds on any one square foot. Yet, Temcor domes weigh a mere five percent of conventional concrete equivalents.
Temcor domes promote process efficiency in cold climates, and they can't be beat for containment of odors and vapors. In fact, their low profile reduces vapor space. And their all-aluminum construction is completely resistant to hydrogen sulfide, chlorine and other corrosive vapors found in water and wastewater treatment plants.
Aquastore® and Temcor Domes
For more than 20 years, Temcor Aluminum Domes have topped Engineered Storage Product Company's (ESPC) glass fused-to-steel bolted Aquastore Tank Systems, in service worldwide for water and wastewater industries. With nearly a century of combined experience, ESPC and Temcor are known for building quality, reliability and durability into every tank/dome system.
Aquastore/Temcor water storage systems provide protection for potable water, wastewater storage and treatment, process water for industry, landfill leachate storage and treatment, fire suppression water and more.
Aquastore tanks are designed and manufactured for strength and durability. Glass97™, developed by ESPC is specifically developed for potable water storage and is formulated with titanium dioxide for coating toughness. Temcor Aluminum Domes are designed to meet exact needs, whether it is resisting a 175 mph wind, supporting a 250 PSF snow load or gas tightness to 24" water column.
The combination of the Temcor Aluminum Dome and the Aquastore tank assures the owner of a low-maintenance service life. Aluminum does not rust, rot, or solar degrade and is resistant to the chlorine and hydrogen sulfide vapors found in the water and wastewater environment.
Temcor domes, in the most requested sizes, are stocked at ESPC DeKalb, Illinois plant for quick delivery with Aquastore tanks. Non-stocked standard dome sizes can be delivered in as little as six to eight weeks.
Exterior tank coatings are available in a number of standard and custom colors. Stocked accessories include ladders and walkways, ventilators, sidewall manways and glass-fused-to-steel floors.
With fast availability, easy assembly and virtually no maintenance required, Aquastore/Temcor tank and roof systems offer unmatched cost efficiencies.
Aquastore/Temcor water storage systems are sold exclusively through independent, authorized Aquastore dealers worldwide. Temcor and Aquastore are ISO:9001 Certified.
