fiberglass water storage tanks are a kind of glass fiber reinforced plastic products. It mainly uses glass fiber as the reinforcing agent, and the resin is a new kind of composite material which is manufactured by the microcomputer controlled machine. FRP tanks with corrosion resistance, high strength, light weight, long service life, because of its can be designed flexibly, process features strong, flexible design can be used in different industries such as chemical industry, environmental protection, food, pharmaceutical and other industries, is gradually replacing carbon steel, stainless steel parts market.
FRP tanks can be divided into vertical horizontal storage tank, storage tank, glass steel tank, storage tank, storage tank, chemical corrosion, hydrochloric acid storage tank tanks, food cans, fermentation tank, transport tanks, storage tanks, glue tank, chemical tank, pressure tank, tank, tank and nitrate in soy sauce.
According to the (storage or transportation) medium is made of epoxy resin, modified resin, polyester or phenolic resin as the binder, the high resin content corrosion resistant lining layer, impervious layer, fiber reinforcement layer and an outer protective layer.
Characteristics of fiberglass water storage tanks:
(1) lightweight and high strength
The relative density of 1.5~2.0, the only carbon steel 1/4~1/5, but the tensile strength is close to or even more than carbon steel, rather than the intensity can be compared with high alloy steel. Therefore, in the aviation, rockets, space, high pressure vessels, as well as in other needs to reduce the weight of the application of products, have excellent results. The tensile, flexural and compressive strengths of some epoxy FRP can reach above 400Mpa.
(2) good corrosion resistance
FRP is a good corrosion resistant material, the atmosphere, water and general concentration of acid, alkali, salt, and a variety of oils and solvents have a better resistance. Has been applied to all aspects of chemical corrosion, is replacing carbon steel, stainless steel, wood, non-ferrous metals, etc..
(3) good electrical performance
Is an excellent insulating material, used to make insulators. Good dielectric properties are still under high frequency. Microwave transmission is good, has been widely used in radar antenna.
(4) good thermal performance
FRP thermal conductivity is low, at room temperature for 1.25~1.67kJ/ (h, m, K), only the metal of 1/100~1/1000, is an excellent thermal insulation material. In the case of instantaneous super high temperature, it is an ideal thermal protection and ablation resistant material, which can protect the universe at more than 2000 degrees.
(5) good design
According to the needs, flexible design of a variety of structural products, to meet the use requirements, you can make the product has a good overall.
Can be fully selected materials to meet the performance of the product, such as: can be designed to rot resistant, resistant to instantaneous high temperature, the product has a particular direction of special high strength, dielectric, and so on.
(6) excellent technology
According to the shape of the product, technical requirements, use and quantity to choose the flexible forming process.
The technique is simple, can be formed at one time, and the economic effect is outstanding, especially for the product with complicated shape and not easy to be formed.
Because the fiberglass water storage tanks design flexibility, tank wall structure with excellent performance, glass steel can change the physical and chemical properties of resin system or reinforcing material to high glass steel tank and non-standard device of fiber winding, in order to meet the needs of different media and working conditions. The bearing capacity of the structure’s thickness, wrap angle and wall thickness to adjust the structure and design of tank, glass steel tank and non-standard device made of different levels of pressure or some special properties, which is an isotropic metal material can not be compared with the.
