Epoxy-coated steel tanks are a type of storage tank that features an Internal coating - Thermoset resin fusion bonded epoxy and an External Coating - Ultra-durable polyester. Epoxy coating through Bonded Epoxy and curing agent 200 degrees of melting and curing, creating a strong and flexible thermosetting polymer coating. This coating helps prevent corrosion and can protect stored fluids from contamination, making them ideal for storing a variety of fluids such as drinking water, process, and wastewater storage.
FBE tanks are tested to rigorous standards and meet, exceed, or provide comparable performance to a wide range of internationally recognized coating requirements. Epoxy-coated steel tanks have become a popular choice across various industries due to their durability, cost-effectiveness, and low maintenance requirements.
Epoxy coated steel tanks are often used for less demanding applications where lower cost and moderate corrosion resistance are acceptable, such as in the storage of potable water, industrial liquids, or materials that produce moderate corrosion.
Epoxy-coated steel tanks are often used for less demanding applications where lower cost and moderate corrosion resistance are acceptable, such as in the storage of potable water, industrial liquids, or materials that produce moderate corrosion.
Epoxy coated steel tanks are also used for storage of various industrial liquids, including oils, lubricants, and chemicals. The tanks have moderate corrosion resistance, making them suitable for moderately corrosive materials. They are commonly used in industries such as manufacturing, mining, and energy.
Epoxy coated steel tanks are suitable for storing materials that produce moderate corrosion. They are commonly used in chemical processing and storage facilities, where materials such as acids, solvents, and fertilizers are stored. They are also used for storing wastewater which can produce moderate levels of corrosion.
The process of coating steel with epoxy typically involves three main steps. The first step is surface preparation, which involves cleaning the steel to remove any dirt, rust, or other contaminants that may prevent the epoxy from bonding properly. This can be done using various methods, such as sandblasting or chemical cleaning.
The second step is the application of the epoxy coating, mainly through electrostatic spraying to complete. Depending on the application and the type of epoxy being used, multiple coats may be necessary to achieve the desired level of protection.
Finally, the coated steel is cured at a specific temperature and for a set amount of time. This allows the epoxy to fully harden and bond to the steel, creating a durable and long-lasting protective coating.
Epoxy-coated steel is commonly used in applications where corrosion resistance is required, such as in pipelines, tanks, and other industrial equipment. It can also be used in architectural applications.
