I am having trouble sourcing a center column for a 50' tall tank that is long enough in one piece(24" std wt pipe). I have heard that our old tank expert did not allow splicing of the tank center columns. I would think that with proper testing of the weld and insuring the column remains straight this shouldn't be a problem. Does anyone have any experience with splcing tank columns? Is this a no-no in the industry?
Thanks for any responses.
