HBFS FRP (GRP) offers a wide range of solutions for storing fluids or solids. These solutions are made out of full FRP (GRP) or dual laminate materials. The choice of material makes storage tanks of HBFS easy to install in different environments. From experience we know that every application has its own specific requirements. HBFS FRP (GRP) storage solutions include detail engineering, manufacturing, transportation and installation of all components.
HBFS production locations are equipped with the latest technologies. With workshops and our 'on site winding unit', HBFS can adapt to all local requirements. HBFS FRP (GRP) and Dual Laminate storage solutions are designed according to all international standards such as DIN, AD N1, ASME, RTP-1, ISO, HG/T20696, JC587,GB51160
FRP (GRP) and Dual Laminate storage solutions:
1. Horizontal FRP tanks (with or without insulation)
2. Vertical FRP tanks (with or without insulation)
3. Chemical FRP storage tanks
4. Underground FRP tanks (e.g. fuel)
5. Ultra-pure water FRP tanks (high purity)
6. Water and wastewater FRP tanks

HBFS FRP (GRP) and dual laminate storage tanks and silos can be equipped with numerous accessories such as valves, level indicators, load cells, dust filters, insulation and heat tracing systems, reinforcement / vacuum rings, steel or FRP supports, platforms or anti slip layers, vent scrubbers, ladders, railings, walkways, pumps.
In 1952, 'Dual Laminate technology' was introduced to the chemical industry. Dual Laminate construction combines the superior chemical resistance of thermoplastics or fluoroplastics with the mechanical strength of FRP (GRP) (thermosetting).
Dual Laminate technique
The liner is thermoformed and welded after which the FRP (GRP) is chemically or mechanically bonded to form a high performance dual laminate finished product. The added cost of this type of construction is justified by its greater service life, lower maintenance costs and higher process productivity.
HBFS has recently improved the production process for special applications in order to achieve an adhesion between liner and FRP (GRP) of more than 7 N/mm2.
Today, many of our customers specify Dual Laminate products for operating conditions requiring high chemical resistance and strength.
