What is the application of expanded clay aggregate or eca for buried tanks and pipes

Insulating buried tanks and pipes are necessary to ensure that temperature fluctuations do not cause the metal or other material to expand or deform excessively, even during extreme changes in temperature, such as from summer to winter.

For this reason, ECA (Expanded Clay Aggregate) is an extremely useful material in the construction and burial of tanks and pipes. ECA can be used to backfill areas around buried tanks and pipes. Due to its naturals strength and incompressibility, it prevents the above land from sagging and also insulates and protects the buried tank or pipe.
