Center Enamel Joins San Jose, Costa Rica To Build A Quality Drinking Water Project
At present, drinking water projects are being vigorously promoted all over the world. Many countries have successfully solved the problem of drinking water supply for local residents after long-term strict supervision and treatment, so that the quality of tap water has reached the standard of direct drinking, including Costa Rica.
Costa Rica is bordered by the Caribbean Sea and the North Pacific Ocean. It is a country rich in water resources. However, over the years, the local rivers have been seriously polluted, the arsenic content of groundwater exceeded the standard, and the drinking water supply system is not perfect enough, resulting in insufficient water supply in some areas. Many local residents do not have access to clean drinking water, which seriously affects daily life and also affects local economic development. Very restrictive. Therefore, in recent years, the Costa Rican government has vigorously promoted the construction of drinking water projects.
To ensure the safety of drinking water, non-toxic, safe and reliable drinking water storage tanks should be used. Ordinary drinking water storage tanks do not meet the standards for safe storage of drinking water and are inconvenient to install and migrate due to their large size. To overcome these problems, San Jose, Costa Rica chose our Glass-Fused-to-Steel tank as the drinking water storage tanks for local drinking water projects. It is worth mentioning that Center Enamel Glass-Fused-to-Steel tank has been certified by NSF61 and AWWA D103-09.
The GFS tanks are assembled on-site by special enamel steel plates, stirrups, self-locking bolts, sealants, and other accessories. After firing at 820°C-930°C high temperature, the molten glass reacts with the steel plate surface to form an inert and inorganic bond, which combines the strength and flexibility of steel and outstanding corrosion resistance of glass. Such a coating combines the chemical and physical resistance of the enamel protrusion with the surface characteristics of the ultra-fine enamel structure, has excellent corrosion resistance, and is a preferred storage tank for storing drinking water with a service life of more than 30 years.
Center Enamel has a professional enamel research and development department. It has been engaged in the research and development and production of enamel for nearly 30 years. It can develop custom enamel formula according to customers' requirements for the storage medium of the tank. In order to meet the requirements of drinking water storage tanks in Costa Rica drinking water project, Center Enamel uses self-developed enamel formula as raw material for Glass-Fused-to-Steel tanks manufacture to ensure the safety of drinking water.
In addition to superior performance, another advantage of GFS tanks as a drinking water storage tank is the ease of installation. Center Enamel produces Glass-Fused-to-Seel plates at the factory and then transports them to the project site for assembly. Enamel steel plates are bolted without large installation equipment or large labor, making tank installation, disassembly, migration, and relocation easier and faster.
At the same time, in order to ensure the quality of the GFS tank, We arranged an experienced installation guidance engineer to be on-site in Costa Rica and provided on-site installation personnel with comprehensive system installation technical training to ensure the timely completion of the construction of the San Jose drinking water project in Costa Rica. It is delivered to be used as intended.
At present, the drinking water storage tanks built by Center Enamel have been successfully put into use, helping local residents in San Jose, Costa Rica to improve and solve the problems of drinking water and poor water quality, effectively improving the comprehensive utilization of water resources. The superior product quality and prompt service gain us lots of recognition from local residents.
In addition to Costa Rica, our Glass-Fused-to-Steel tank is also popular in Australia, Canada, Panama, and other countries. Because GFS tanks have the advantages of the short construction period, low cost, excellent corrosion resistance, easy installation, free expansion of tank volume, and customizable tank color, in addition to the drinking water tank, it is also used as biogas tank, wastewater tank, industrial wastewater tank, landfill leachate tank, municipal sewage tank.
