A Fiberglass Tank is a Lighter and Cost-Effective Option

By Angela Smith Subscribe to RSS | January 17th 2012 | Views:

A fiberglass tank is a superior alternative to traditionally used storage tanks in many ways. A storage tank made from fiberglass is inherently more resistant against the corrosive effects caused by alcohols, ethanol and ethanol blends, and water. The tanks are also lightweight as compared to metallic tanks. Whether storing fuel, chemicals, water or wastewater the primary feature of quality storage tanks, after corrosion, is watertight.

In this article, we shall discuss the benefits of fiberglass tanks for fuel storage. Here are some reasons why fiberglass is the preferred material for storing fuels such as petroleum:

•These tanks provide you leak-free storage in all kinds of conditions.

•Other materials are prone to problems such as corrosion or deterioration, but this is not the case with fiberglass.

•Fiberglass offers you innumerable design options because it is a material that can be easily adapted and fitted with unique appurtenances. No matter what kind of storage requirements you have, you can get a suitable tank custom made from your manufacturer.

•If you are purchasing from a reputable manufacturer, you can handle the most combustible fuels. That’s because there are some well-known firms that offer single-wall, double-wall and triple-wall tanks made from fiberglass.

•These tanks can be installed quickly and often with less expensive equipment. You don’t need to rent very heavy (and expensive) equipment to offload the tank.

•All fiberglass tank options are recommended over alternative materials such as steel tanks, but not all fiberglass manufacturers are the same. Some manufacturing companies have created a process whereby the fiberglass tank is manufactured inside out. In this superior process, the inside surface is not exposed to air as it cures. This is a smarter alternative to manufacturing processes that depend upon the use of wax coatings/liners to cure the inner surface, inviting opportunities for risk.

Most applications call for custom-made tanks. This makes it all the more imperative for you to choose a brand with a veritable reputation. You can discuss your requirements with your chosen manufacturer to get the most suitable design for your fuel storage tank.

High-grade fiberglass tanks are compatible with the new breed of ethanol-blended fuels and bio-fuels. That explains why the largest fuel marketers in the United States have chosen fiberglass tanks over the others. Fiberglass has become the storage tank option of choice for the majority of North America and with benefits such as corrosion resistance and trusted water-tight joints there is no question why.
