Benefits of FRP
• Lasts 5 to 10 times longer than steel in corrosive environments.
• As fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) does not rust, there is no need for painting or reclading.
• Adapts to heat, stress, conductivity and climate conditions.
• Superior corrosion resistance in many applications versus rubber lined and bare metal.
• More slip resistant than metal.
• As FRP is non-conductive, electrical equipment can not short out.
• Ignition resistant with the addition of brominated materials.
• Good insulating material with reasonable thermal expansion properties with efficient heat tracing from bottom of vessel with Plasta-therm.
• Properly formulated resins allow for fiberglass reinforced plastics to be FDA compliant.
• No trace metallic contamination within the contents of the tank.
• Adhesive strength and elongation of resins can act to absorb equipment vibration.
Fiberglass Reinforced Tanks are suitble for use in many chemical and water treatment applications.
• wastewater treatment
• air purification
• pulp and paper
• Sodium Hypochlorite
Plas-Tanks Industries is an ASME RTP-1 certified fabricator. ASME RTP-1 is the most comprehensive and active standard in the industry for reinforced thermoset plastic (RTP) equipment.
Plas-Tanks is among a small group of certified companies that are able to design, fabricate and code stamp fiberglass vessels. Plas-Tanks has been actively involved with the development of the standard since its inception and serves as a voting member at the subcommittee level.
Plas-Tanks is audited annually through unannounced visits by ASME.
Shop employees are qualified through an independent, accredited testing lab and a recertification process is completed every three years.
