Bladders for pressure tanks, expansion vessels, water hammer arrestors

Titan Industrial is highly specialized in the manufacture of tailor-made bladders for expansion tanks, pressure vessels, and water hammer arrestors.

We have a flexible approach to our customers requirements and produce the bladders in all shapes and sizes, with vast experience in special dimensions, upto 100.000 litres and more.

We use polyurethane (ether) film in thickness of 1 mm, which allows easy handling in installation and low transport costs due to its light weight (around 30% of a common butyl bladder), with highest quality and durability.

The bladders are suitable for potable water systems, raw water, irrigation, and heating plants / hot water installations.

The membranes comply with the consumer goods laws of the European Union and the U.S.A. and are approved for contact with potable water and foodstuffs.

We are also able to manufacture bladders for fire protection foam concentrate pressure tanks in all shapes and sizes as per customers demands.
