Advantages Of Glass-Fused-to-Steel Tanks

High-capacity storage tanks are important infrastructure in the petroleum, chemical, fire protection, food processing, wastewater treatment, gas, and other industries, and storage tanks play an important role in the global economic development. With the continuous development of the storage tank industry, more and more industries and enterprises use storage tanks to store various liquids, gases, and raw materials, which cannot be produced normally for many enterprises without a storage tank.

Traditional large storage tanks mainly include carbon steel welded tanks and concrete tanks. Carbon steel welded tanks need to be welded on site by skilled welders. It is necessary to check for leaks to ensure that the tank will not leak. Concrete tanks require a lot of time for curing, and they must be sealed and waterproofed for a long installation period. At present, the most advanced tank solution in the tank industry is the enamel assembled tank, which is assembled by bolting, which is much faster than the installation of concrete or welded tanks and is not affected by weather delays.

Compared with concrete or carbon steel welded tanks, Center Enamel's Glass-Fused-to-Steel tanks have several distinct advantages.

Low Cost

The installation, disassembly, migration, and resettlement of Glass-Fused-to-Steel tanks are convenient and fast, and do not require a large amount of labor and large installation equipment. The quality is stable and the corrosion resistance is excellent, so the maintenance cost is very low. Carbon steel welded tanks and concrete tanks are installed on-site and usually involve sealing and waterproofing, long installation intervals, and the installation process are easily delayed due to bad weather (such as rain or wind), resulting in high installation costs. In some cities, there may be restrictions on the use of sealants, resulting in delays or high installation costs. GFS tanks are more convenient and environmentally friendly without on-site finishing.

Short Construction Period

The Glass-Fused-to-Steel is standardized in the factory and is packaged and transported to the construction site for assembly. The steel plate is spliced by a bolt connection and has special installation tools for installation. The installation process is less affected by the weather and the installation cycle is easy to control.

Beautiful Appearance

The surface of Glass-Fused-to-Steel tanks is smooth and sleek, the standard color is dark blue, bright and beautiful, and any other color can be customized according to the user's requirements.

Freely Expandable

Compared with concrete or carbon steel welded tanks, the GFS tank has unmatched expandability. If it is necessary to expand the tank capacity in the future, the GFS tank can be easily expanded with minimal material and labor input. Since the Glass-Fused-to-Steel bolted tanks are constructed of modular enamel steel, only more enamel steel is needed and the time to reconfigure and expand existing tanks is required.

Superior Corrosion Resistance

After the enamel steel plate is sintered at a high temperature of 820°-930°, the enamel will fuse with the surface of the steel plate to form a strong chemically inert inorganic coating, which has superior corrosion resistance, and the service life of the Glass-Fused-to-Steel tank is more than years.
