What is a FRP tank?

 

FRP tank is a FRP water tank made of FRP, which can be used to store various media, with properties such as anti-corrosion, anti-aging, pressure resistance, longevity, light weight, anti-penetration, heat insulation, insulation, strength, non-toxicity, smooth surface and so on. Widely used in medicine, paint, building materials, chemical and other fields.

 

Classification and composition of FRP oil storage tanks:

 

FRP oil storage tanks use modified or polyester resin, epoxy furan resin, and phenolic resin as adhesives, depending on the medium used (storage or transportation), and are composed of a permeable layer with high resin content, corrosion-resistant inner lining, fiber It is composed of winding reinforcement layer and appearance protection layer. FRP oil storage tanks include horizontal oil storage tanks, FRP oil storage tanks, vertical oil storage tanks, fermentation tanks, chemical oil storage tanks, hydrochloric acid storage tanks, anti-corrosion oil storage tanks, food tanks, sulfuric acid storage tanks, bonding Agent tank, transportation oil storage tank, oil storage tank, pressure oil storage tank, nitric acid oil storage tank, chemical oil storage tank, soy sauce tank, etc.

 

FRP water tank maintenance technology:

 

1. Avoid contact and collision, avoid contact with sharp and hard objects, damage should be repaired in time, and should be cleaned frequently.

 

2. Long-term exposure to the sun in the hot sun, avoid using in harsh environments.

 

3. The FRP oil storage tank can only be used under the design conditions, and the use medium cannot be changed at will. If the design conditions are met, it must be cleaned when changing the medium.

 

FRP tanks have the following characteristics:

 

(1) Good corrosion resistance: FRP is a good internal food material, and has good resistance to the atmosphere, water, acids, alkalis, salts, various oils and solvents in general concentrations. It has been used in all aspects of chemical anti-corrosion, and is replacing carbon steel, stainless steel, wood, non-ferrous metals, etc.

 

(2) Good thermal performance: FRP has low thermal conductivity, room temperature is 1.25 ~ 1.67KJ/(M H K), and only 1/100~1/1000 metal is an excellent thermal insulation material. In the case of instantaneous ultra-high temperature, the ideal thermal Protective and ablation-resistant materials can protect the spacecraft from high-speed airflow of more than 2000.

 

(3) Lightweight and high-strength: the relative density is between 1.5~2.0, only 1/4~1/5 of carbon steel, but the tensile strength exceeds Carbon steel, the specific strength can be compared with high-grade alloy steel. Therefore, excellent achievements have also been made in aviation, rockets, spacecraft, high-pressure vessels and other product applications that require weight reduction. Some epoxy glass fiber reinforced plastics are stretched and bent and compressive strength can reach more than 400Mpa. Note: strength ratio strength divided by density.

 

(4) Good electrical performance: The insulator is made of excellent insulating material. Good heritability is still preserved at high frequencies. Microwave permeability is good and has been widely used in radomes.
