Pre-drawn tank symbols represent air tank, batch tank, air cylinder, hopper, liquid storage drum, reactor, silo with ladder, tank with hatch, etc. Vector symbols help develop accurate and presentation-quality diagrams and documentations.

A large collection of P&ID tank symbols are provided in Edraw symbol library. Based on advanced quality and the comprehensive collection of symbols, it provides an exceptional convenience in making piping and instrumentation diagrams and process flow diagrams.

How to Use Tank Symbols

This set of symbols are included in Industrial Automation category of the symbol library. When you start a Environmental P&ID drawing template, the symbol library will open automatically. You can drag a required shape from the library and drop onto the canvas.

The shapes you've got are vector graphics, which are highly editable.

Shape Scalable

Shapes can be scaled up or down in size while keeping high clarity. There is no blur image anymore.

Tank Symbol Change Size

Color Changeable

If the current color could not fit your theme, you can freely change filling colors.


  1. To change the filling color for a part of a shape, first you need to select the sub shape. Click on the sub shape you want to change color for a few times until it is successfully selected (there will be a blue selection frame), then you can change this sub shape with a new color, and with other parts unchanged.
  2. Or you can ungroup the shape first (go to Home menu, and click Ungroup button), and change the color for any sub shape freely.
