How To Improve The Seismic Performance of Glass-Fused-to-Steel Bolted Storage Tank

As we all know, earthquakes will not only cause the collapse of various buildings, damage to infrastructure, but also cause serious economic losses and casualties. As one of the storage tanks widely used in various industries, Glass-Fused-to-Steel tanks are used to store wastewater or industrial liquids with corrosiveness and acidity. Once the storage tank is collapsed or destroyed due to earthquake,  wastewater or industrial liquids leakage will not only pollute the environment but also may Leading to devastating secondary disasters, the quality and safety of Glass-Fused-to-Steel bolted storage tanks has always been the focus of customers.

In order to avoid wastewater or industrial liquids leakage from the collapse or damage of GFS tanks after the earthquake, storage tanks must have good seismic performance. As the first and most experienced Glass-Fused-to-Steel Tanks manufacturer in China, Center Enamel Glass-Fused-to-Steel bolted tanks design will consider the earthquake factors and the anti-seismic performance of the storage tank, so as to improve the reliability of the tank against earthquake and reduce the impact of earthquake on the tank.

First of all, our storage tank design engineers make tank engineering calculations on each specific tank structure according to project local environmental conditions, such as snow load, wind speed, seismic zone etc., to make sure the tank structure's adequate security in long-term service life. For areas with more active earthquakes, we will adopt infrastructure with high seismic performance to ensure that Glass-Fused-to-Steel bolted storage tanks have strong seismic performance.

In order to improve the seismic performance of the Glass-Fused-to-Steel bolted storage tank, Center Enamel strict control of the quality of raw materials with raw materials testing. In terms of product quality inspection, All Glass-Fused-to-Steel bolted storage tanks are tested during the production. And Center Enamel Glass-Fused-to-Steel tanks engineering & design, product testing and quality system are in strict accordance with AWWA D103-09, OSHA, ISO/EN 28765, NSF61 and NFPA, etc. international standards.

The seismic performance of the Glass-Fused-to-Steel bolted storage tank has been proved in practical application. In April 2016, the Republic of Ecuador was hit by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake, which led to the collapse of buildings and the destruction of Bridges in many parts of the country. Manta, the site of Ecuador's agricultural water treatment plant, was badly damaged by the earthquake. After the earthquake, Center Enamel learned that the GFS tank of the project (designed and produced by Center Enamel) had not been affected in terms of main performance, technical parameters and appearance of the tank after experiencing a strong earthquake of magnitude 7.8, and it was still in normal use. The good seismic performance of our Glass-Fused-to-Steel bolted storage tank makes this project a representative project that is well received in the local area.

Now, The leading storage tank design concept and strict storage tank design standards gain us worldwide recognition. Until 2018, Center Enamel Glass-Fused-to-Steel tanks have been exported to more than 60 countries including the USA, Australia, Canada, Malaysia, Indonesia, Russia, UAE, Panama, India, and South Africa, etc. Our storage tanks widely used in industrial wastewater and municipal wastewater, landfill leachate aquaculture wastewater, drinking water, fire water, biogas engineering, etc. In the future, the company will always adhere to the core concept of "quality, innovation, integrity, win-win", active development and innovation, committed to becoming a world-renowned storage tank solution supplier!
