ATS Fiberglass (FRP) tanks and systems are engineered and fabricated to provide cost effective storage and delivery solutions and alternatives to traditional methods.
FRP tanks are typically less than 1/4th the weight of steel and 1/8th the weight of concrete . This allows for faster installation, lower transportation costs and reduced foundation and anchoring systems.
Through the use of innovative lining systems, ATS structures are highly resistant to corrosive and aggressive chemical attack greatly reducing maintenance costs.
Liners include NSF 61 Acid, alkali & chemical resistant
Toughened liners for slurries or high particulate matter fluids are available in shore hardness up to 95 in addition to ceramic epoxy.
Abrasion resistant liners can also be provided with excellent chemical resistance.
Strength to Weight Ratio
FRP tanks have a greater ratio of strength to unit weight than traditional materials such as carbon and stainless steel.
The excellent dimensional stability of FRP maintains the critical tolerances requires of the most demanding structural storage and piping applications.
FRP tanks are typically non-conductive but conductive pipe and grounding can be supplied for applications where static buildup must be dissipated when storing or transporting certain liquids or gas.
ATS RFP structures can operate continuously in temperatures ranging from -40°F–>375°F and a low\CTE ensures using a minimum of expansion joints.
Tanks can be fitted with heat tracers for temperature control
FRP structures do not release toxic halogens when exposed to fire.
