Oblate Tanks

Short Description:

Fiberglass tank shell sections are produced at manufacturing factory and compressed or “oblated” to an allowable road transportation dimension, delivered to customer’s jobsite and assembled by bonding. Such tanks are named “oblate tanks”

Jrain has our own sophisticated production techniques enabling tanks to be transported at once. Such tanks are manufactured in different sections which can be assembled on site. The compressed shells will be unfolded through special way and bonded together at job site.

Except the common advantages of fiberglass tanks, the oblate tanks are also featured by:

  • Solved road transportation problem;
  • Fabricated the components as most as possible at workshop;
  • Minimized the field work;
  • Cost effective;
  • Shorten project schedule;

Raw materials and main processes for oblate tanks:

  • VE Resin, Iso Resin
  • C-veil, Synthetic veil, Carbon veil
  • E-Glass, ECR Glass, mat, roving
  • MEKP or BPO/DMA cure systems
  • Helically-wound, chop-hoop and hand lay-up construction

Main standards we can follow:

  • ASME RTP-1   • ASTM D3299   • ASTM D4097   • BS EN 13121

Except the compressed shells made at workshop, Jrain is also able to provide the bonding service for compressed shells at field when customer require.

Jrain has special construction team for site working. Such team consists of rich experienced project manager, workers, coordinators and inspectors, and can complete the field work in a professional manner and take the necessary actions quickly and efficiently to ensure the installation.

Therefore no matter what kind of service you need on FRP, please contact us, Jrain will provide you a best solution with our professional and rich experience on FRP engineering, fabrication and post service.

      Insulation Tanks

      Should insulation be required, it is a simple task to equip the tanks with a 50mm PU foam layer covered by a 5mm FRP layer. This method of insulation produces a K value of 0.5W/m2K. If needed the thickness can be adjusted, for example to 100mm PU foam (0.3W/m2K). But the thickness of insulation is generally to be 30-50mm, while the thickness of outer protection cover can be 3-5mm. FRP tank is strength higher than that of steel, casting iron, plastic and so on. Theref...
