Glass Fused to Steel

Steel Combined with Glass - The Strength for Safe Storage

Glass Fused to Steel Tanks

Liquistore utilizes the glass fused to steel tank technology, which is bolted together and sealed with a moisture cured urethane compound. Glass fused to steel has become the premium water and liquid storage technology due to its dependable performance and minimal maintenance costs. The factory applied silica glass coating is fused into high strength steel at 850°C creating a hard, inert barrier for both the interior and exterior surface of the tank, protecting the steel core against any corrosion.

Vitreous enamel coating is the perfect system to combine the benefits of steel (highest load bearing capacity, resilience) and glass (highest chemical resistance) in one single material. The liquid enamel fuses in one or two (depending on the required surface properties) processes at 850°C to become a new material: enamelled glass coated steel. The major difference to other coating methods is that the enamel does not adhere to the steel but bonds with it.

Our product and service offers a long life, high resistance to aggressive media, high resistance to atmospheric corrosion and UV light, high durability, easy maintenance and cleaning. We also offer a considerably reduced operational duty time, short manufacturing and onsite erection times, expandability and moveability, high efficiently and equivalent value, lowest maintenance cost and entire management of your project.

These tanks can be constructed from capacities of 15,000 litres to 25,000,000 litres. Liquistore will ship and install the tank complete with a concrete or steel foundation. Our building crews will ensure that the high quality control measures taken in the factory are kept during installation and start up.
