FRP (Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic) is an updated composite material used for chemical plants appliances and equipment, namely vessels and tanks. FRP tanks and vessels have a number of useful applications including both industrial and commercial water treatment system. FRP tanks or vessels are durable, lightweight, flexible, high strength, corrosion resistant and less expensive. And thus such vessels are often considered as the true alternative to SS (stainless steel) vessels.
What are the features and benefits of FRP vessels and tanks?
Why is FRP a preferred choice for manufacturing tanks and vessels?
FRP is a widely accepted and widely used material typically used for making vessels and tanks to be used in chemical plants as well as water treatment systems. The key construction is done by means of filament winding. FRP is essentially corrosion resistant. It doesn’t develop corrosion even while exposed to liquid. Moreover, it can effectively withstand hydrostatic forces and strong tensile as well. It is often better and stronger than stainless steel. And thus FRP is often chosen for manufacturing water vessels and storage tanks.
How do FRP tanks and vessels help in water treatment ?
As already mentioned, FRP is immuned to liquids including water as well as harsh chemicals. Thus the any leading FRP Pressure Vessel Manufacturer prefers FRP for using in water treatment plants. FRP is leak-proof and thus it keeps the flow of water easy and lucid. Moreover, it is flexible and thus can be given any shape (vertical or horizontal) and size (big or small).
