Design Tanks manufactures its fiberglass tanks utilizing two distinct processes: chop-hoop filament wound and centrifugally cast. The process selected depends on the required tank size and intended use.
By utilizing centrifugal force to combine resin and glass, the process provides a dense uniform wall laminate capable of 70% resin content. The entire tank wall becomes a resin-rich, chemical-resistant barrier that has an aesthetically pleasing exterior and can be custom engineered for specific requirements ranging from the storage of corrosive chemicals to food-grade applications.
A unique blend of two proven fabrication techniques—chopped glass “spray up” and continuous filament winding—provides the benefits of maximum corrosion resistance plus the strength required for vertical storage. The structural wall is constructed through a process of simultaneously glass chopping, resin application, and hoop filament winding.
