FRP Storage Tanks Are Used for Fire Protection Systems


Historically, FRP storage tanks have been used in the petroleum industry to safely store engine fuel and other petroleum products in thousands of retail stores, government and commercial fueling facilities around the world. The petroleum industry is heavily regulated, and most customers only consider tanks that meet third-party listing standards and have a proven track record of reliability. Fire system designers can confidently select FRP tanks based on decades of use in storing hazardous and flammable liquids.


Municipalities and facility owners in some countries continue to look for ways to better manage their water resources. Water storage for fire suppression systems is a special application, and fire engineers across the country are looking for reliable, efficient FRP storage tanks to hold tons of water.


FRP Storage Tanks Are Used for Fire Protection Systems


Why is it ideal?

1,Corrosion resistant, as a material, fiber reinforced thermosetting resin composites (fiberglass or FRP) have been used for decades in highly corrosive environments, not only for storage tanks, but also for piping and handling equipment, such as ducts and vent pipes.


2,Super high capacity. The sizes typically required in fire protection systems are factory fabricated products, and they offer superior quality control processes compared to tanks fabricated in the field under varying weather conditions and manufacturing controls.


3,Fiberglass tanks have a long history of being used in applications where watertight design integrity is critical, meaning they are less likely to leak and break. When it comes to the storage of water for fire protection, leak-free performance is critical.

4,Fiberglass underground storage tanks are structurally robust and easy to install at low cost and in a short time, making them ideal for installation in parking lots and high traffic locations.


5,Fiberglass tanks can be designed for dual use, a common example being standby fire protection and potable water.


6,The lightweight nature of fiberglass minimizes installation steps and costs, as expensive lifting equipment is usually not required. This is also an important consideration when the tank installation site is difficult to access.
