Glass-Fused Steel Tank

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.

Glass-Fused Steel Tank Benefits

  • The Glass-Fused (Enamel) tank has a longer life expectancy
  • Perfectly suited for both hot and cold climates that experience weather extremes
  • Holds color so requires no painting or re-coating
  • Ideal for Industrial applications and Wastewater
  • Use as process tanks for Biosolids storage
  • Ideal for bulk material storage (grain, limestone, cement, fly ash, wood waste, granulated
    plastics, salt) and possible fodder
  • Multiple liquid storing applications (dung water, salt brine, process, and firewater, lime milk,
    liquid fertilizers), stormwater retention or re-use.
  • Multiple potable water storage applications
