What Should Be Paid Attention To In Extending The Service Life Of FRP Storage Tanks?


What problems should be paid attention to when using FRP storage tanks? Avoiding these problems will prolong the service life of FRP tanks and improve the use characteristics of FRP tanks.



As container equipment, FRP tank equipment has been widely used in chemical, manufacturing, machinery and other industries. Due to the FRP material with the advantages of corrosion resistance, light weight and low price, FRP storage tanks are well received. What are the precautions?


1.It is not allowed to load heavy objects on the top of the glass fiber reinforced plastic tank at will, and the use of negative pressure is strictly prohibited for atmospheric pressure storage tanks.


2.It is not allowed to take over and apply load, and take over with vibration source to set up effective anti-vibration measures.


3.Keep away from fire and heat sources.


4.The maximum value of the working pressure of the pressure glass fiber reinforced plastic storage tank (glass fiber reinforced plastic container, glass fiber reinforced plastic tower) should not exceed the design specified value. Unless specially designed, its vibration source (stirring, recoil device) cold and heat pipes should be Tank isolation support.


5.Atmospheric FRP tanks refer to hydrostatic tanks that are connected to the atmosphere, especially vertical flat-bottom tanks. It should be ensured that the tank body is well connected to the atmosphere, and will not be pressurized (positive and negative pressure) due to venting, feeding or temperature changes.


6.It is only used under the design premise, and the FRP storage tank cannot be changed at will with the medium (including medium concentration), temperature, operating pressure, etc. While paying attention to the above six points, when using the FRP tank products produced by FRP Co., Ltd., be sure to read the instructions carefully, follow the advice of the technical installers, and ensure the stable and long-term operation of the FRP tank.
