Glass fused to steel (GFS) tanks are a type of bolted storage tank made from two materials: glass and steel. High strength TRS (titanium rich steel) plates and enamels are perfectly fused at high temperatures to form a highly inert inorganic glaze layer. This coating system has excellent anti-corrosion properties and is the best choice for tank and silo.
YHR Tanks, as an experienced glass-fused-to-steel tank manufacturer, has consistently concentrated on the research and production of glass-fused bolted steel tanks since the mid-1990s. After over two decades of continuous dedication, our glass-fused-to-steel tanks have found extensive applications in domestic municipal, environmental protection, aquaculture, and various other fields. Additionally, they have been exported to international markets.
Glass Fused To Steel Tanks find extensive applications across various industries, serving diverse purposes in different settings. These tanks are notably utilized in:
Water Treatment Plants
Wastewater Treatment Plants
Food Processing Plants, and more.
Renowned for their extended service life and minimal maintenance requirements owing to corrosion resistance and UV stability, glass-fused tanks cater to municipal, industrial, and agricultural needs.
Their exceptional corrosion resistance, durability, and easy maintenance features make them highly suitable for the storage and processing of a wide range of liquids, chemicals, and gases. Additionally, these glass fused bolted steel tanks are employed for rainwater harvesting, firefighting, and the storage of various industrial liquids.
The steel substrate employed in the construction of glass-fused-to-steel tanks is a specialized high-strength enamel steel, distinctively designed for superior performance. Its mechanical properties, including yield strength, tensile strength, and elongation, far surpass those of conventional steel plates.
