UPP® Tank Risers
UPP® Tank Risers
UPP® 4" Tank Risers provide a corrosion-resistant solution for mounting spill containers, probe and tank sensor access manways, and venting equipment to the tank top. The non-corrosive, HDPE design keeps the inside diameter free of corrosion, preventing overfill prevention valves, probes, and floats from being damaged when pulled from the tank for regular inspections.
PREMIUM, CORROSION-RESISTANT RISER SOLUTION
The advanced design of UPP® Tank Risers ensures they remain impervious to corrosive elements and safeguards tank top equipment from costly damage throughout the life of the site.
UPP® Tank Risers are designed to accommodate a wide range of tank top equipment applications. They are compatible with most common spill containers, overfill prevention valves, drop tubes, submersible pumps, and probe floats.
By eliminating the possibility of corrosion, UPP® Tank Risers streamline the process of pulling drop tubes, overfill prevention valves, and other tank equipment through risers, while keeping water out.
With smooth and corrosion-free surfaces, equipment can be effortlessly pulled from tanks during inspections and testing, saving valuable time and reducing the risk of costly equipment damage.
The UPP® electrofusion welding installation process ensures precision and accuracy in every joint by creating a watertight seamless connection between the riser pipe and stainless steel threaded connection fittings.
The upfront investment in a corrosion-free riser solution translates into long-term savings by reducing maintenance and equipment replacement costs.
Effectively bond components together into one, leak-proof system.
Field Height Adjustable
Installations don’t always go as planned. Unlike steel risers, UPP® Tank Risers can be adjusted in the field without the need for steel cutting saws or threading tools.
Unlike fiberglass riser installation, UPP® Tank Risers eliminate messy fiberglass grinding, cutting, adhesive mixing, and extended cure times from the installation process.
UPP® Tank Riser installation is also unaffected by external weather factors such as temperature, humidity, or precipitation, allowing for installation even in challenging environments.
UPP® Tank Risers utilize the advanced electrofusion welder and welding process to effectively bond system components together into one, leak-proof system.

UPP® 4" Tank Risers come as individual 5' risers, couplers, and threaded termination fittings. They are cut-to-fit and utilize an electrofusion welder to bond the components on-site.
1. 4" tank riser long termination fitting, 15"
2. 4" tank riser termination fitting, 9"
3. Electrofusion coupler
4. 4" tank riser (5' field height adjustable)
5. Earth grounding clamp (see "Grounding" specification for details)
- The stainless-steel adaptor in the riser assembly connected to the underground
storage tank (UST) should not require a dedicated grounding (earthing) method
as it is in direct contact with the backfill material and will not be subjected to any
static electricity charging mechanism.
- It is recommended that the drop tube reaching the bottom of the UST is
grounded (earthed) during filling operations.
- Grounding the drop tube can be achieved by grounding the metalwork
connected to the drop tube in the spill bucket. This a good safety practice
recommendation that applies regardlessof the riser design or material, and is
recommended in IEC TS 60079-32-1, particularly when using fiberglass USTs.
- The UPP® Grounding Clamp may be used when a grounding provision is
Applications required per local code:
- Earth grounding clamp
- Earth grounding lead to ground rod per state/local codes (locally sourced)
