Glass fused steel tank is made of glass and steel plate, special sealing materials, self-locking screws and other materials. The thickness of the enameled steel plate can be up to 20mm, the most commonly used steel plate thickness is 3~10mm, the surface of the steel plate has oil, contains rust, contains oxidation skin, after the pretreatment process such as shot blasting, sand blasting, the surface of the steel plate will be very clean. After the electric furnace 900 ℃ high temperature secondary enamel, the steel plate on both sides of the enamel coating of 0.3mm. The bond between the enamel coating and the steel plate is strong. The enamel coating not only prevents corrosion of the tank, but also has the effect of resistance to strong acid and alkali. And has extremely strong wear resistance.

GLS tanks

Large-capacity storage tanks are an important infrastructure for petroleum, chemical, fire, food processing, sewage treatment, gas and other industries, storage tanks play an important role in the global economic development. With the continuous development of the storage tank industry, more and more industries and enterprises use tanks to store various liquids, gases and raw materials, such as biogas, fire water, wastewater storage, etc.

Traditional large storage tanks are mainly carbon steel welded tanks and concrete tanks. Carbon steel welded tanks need to be welded on site by skilled welders. It is necessary to check for leaks to ensure that the tank does not leak. Concrete tanks require a significant amount of time to cure and must be sealed and waterproofed for extended installations. The most advanced tank solution in the tank industry today is the enamel assembled tank, which is assembled using bolted connections and can be installed much faster than concrete or welded tanks and is not subject to weather delays.


Low Cost

GLS /GFS tanks are easy and quick to install, disassemble, relocate and place, requiring no extensive labor or large installation equipment. Consistent quality, good corrosion resistance, and very low maintenance costs. Carbon steel welded tanks and concrete tanks are installed on site, usually involving sealing against water, with long installation cycles, and the installation process is easily delayed by inclement weather (such as rain or wind), resulting in high installation costs. In some cities, the use of sealants may be limited, resulting in delays or high installation costs. gfs tanks are more convenient and environmentally friendly, requiring no on-site finishing.


Short Construction Period

Glass fused steel is standardized in the factory, packaged and shipped to the site for assembly. The steel panels are bolted together and have special installation tools for installation. The installation process is less affected by weather and the installation cycle is easy to control.


Beautiful Appearance

The surface of FRP tank is smooth and sleek, the standard color is dark blue, bright and beautiful, and any other color can be customized according to user requirements.


Freely Expandable

Compared to welded concrete or carbon steel tanks, GFS tanks offer unparalleled scalability. If the tank capacity needs to be expanded in the future, GFS tanks can be easily expanded with minimal investment in materials and labor. Since FRP bolted tanks are made of modular enameled steel, only more enameled steel is required and time is needed to reconfigure and expand existing tanks.


Excellent corrosion resistance

After the enameled steel is sintered at 820°-930°, the enamel is fused to the steel surface, forming a chemically inert inorganic coating with superior corrosion resistance and long service life. Glass-Fused-to-Steel tanks have been available for over several years.
