Dual Laminate Tanks
The Forbes Group manufactures thermoplastic GRP tanks using the latest dual laminate technology.
Dual laminate GRP storage tanks combine the outstanding strength of GRP (Glass Fibre Reinforced Plastic) with the high chemical resistance of a thermoplastic inner shell. Dual laminate GRP storage tank technology is now accepted as standard in virtually every industry from chemicals to food and water, microelectronics and offshore oil and gas.
Tanks can range for 200 to 200,000 litre capacities and can be made in almost any size, subject only to road transport considerations. They incorporate conductive material behind weld lines and nozzle penetration so that the integrity of the GRP storage tank can we proven by spark testing throughout its working life.
Although light and easy to handle, the substantial strength achievable with GRP dual laminate permits structures to be designed with integral steelwork such as ladders, hand railing, platforms and agitator bridges. It is straightforward to include side access manways when building dual laminate GRP tanks.
Dual laminate tank technology is now accepted as standard in all industries - from chemicals to food, microelectronics and offshore oil and gas.
Design and construction in accordance with BS4994:1987.
Tanks, Vessels & Fabrications
Dual Laminate tank design is not limited to available moulds or mandrels, sizes can be determined to suit the requirements of the application precisely. Design freedom extends to tanks in vertical or horizontal cylindrical configurations; even rectangular tanks and irregular fabrications are achievable.
The Forbes economic range of flat bottomed dual laminate tanks offers superb value for money.
All of our tanks are built to order, so the dimensions can be modified to suit specific restrictions and requirements.
Available with different thermoplastic inner shells including Polypropylene (PP), PVCu, PVDF & ECTFE - the most appropriate selected for each application.
Also known as the Lion range, when manufactured under DWI: Regulation 31.
Regulation 25(1)a - Products for Water Undertakers
For many years Forbes has supplied the water industry with a wide range of high specification products, including storage tanks for water, sludge, effluent and chemicals, dosing tanks, salt saturators, fume and odour scrubbing systems and stripping towers in plastics materials. To meet this criteria Forbes has developed product ranges especially for the water industry and they have been approved by the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and Regions.
