Fusing glass to steel is rapidly becoming the premier technology in the tank industry today. This process which involves heating the steel to over 1500 degrees and then applying a coating of silica glass creating an enamel surface that never needs to be painted and is ideal for the storage of drinking water, bulk materials, wastewater or even Biosolids storage. These tanks are commonly referred to as GFS Tanks, Glass Fused To Steel Tanks, Enamel Tanks or Glass Fused Bolted Steel Tanks.
Glass-fused-to-steel creates an impermeable barrier ideal for the storage of many and varied materials since it is not impacted by liquids or vapors, controls undercutting that can be caused by corrosion and because of its durability resistant to impact and abrasion resistance. It is also a unique deterrent to most common graffiti since it can be easily removed and it never needs painting. Your glass fused tank will look amazing for years to come.
We also carry the following tanks in this size:
16,000 Gallon Glass-Fused Bolted Steel Tank measuring 9-ft in diameter and 32-ft at the peak, fabricated with glass-fused steel panels bolted together using mastic and gaskets to ensure a watertight seal. The glass-fused-to-steel process ensures that water never touches the metal panels. Glass Fused Steel (GFS) tanks are a great example of the innovation occurring in the tank industry today.
