GLASS FUSED STEEL TANKS
Glass Fused Steel Tanks (GFS Tank) Glass Fused Steel tanks (GFS) also called as Glass Lined Steel tanks(GLS) are made by fusing stainless steel and glass.
The reason for fusing glass with steel is to enhance the properties of the latter.
Single Steel is vulnerable to environmental conditions, hence fusion is required.
After fusing the steel with glass, the strength increases, the acceptable bracket of PH value for alkaline solutions widens, and the resistance of abrasion inflates.
We also offer Glass fused steel tanks (Enamel steel tanks) as per the RTP technology and fire protection water storage tanks which meet FM Global & other industry standards.
Process and Technology
The Glass Fused to Steel tank panels is also known as Enamel Steel Tank because these are lined inside and outside with glass enamel.
The enamel is a solid, smooth, and shiny cover of silicate. It is fused in a special furnace having temperature ranges from 780 to 900 degree Celsius. The Steel rounded (cylinder) shell of the tank is built from a two-layer glass-fused sheet coated on both sides. The sheets are attached with special high-grade bolts and sealed by constantly flexible silicones (sealants). The connecting material and shell accessories are equipped with surface treatment.
The glass-fused tanks can be used to store fluid or lose material. The speciality of these tanks is that they are FM Global approved & can be used as an industrial water storage tank. The GFS/GLS tanks are also a fundamental building element of environmental technological facilities such as Waste Water Treatment, Fire fighting Water storage and Anaerobic Digester Tank.
