Rectangular GRP Sectional Panel Tanks  

Rectangular GRP Sectional Panel Tanks

The Allied Sectional Panel Tanks cover a range of sizes from 1,000 litres to 1,000,000 litres in almost any size configuration. A variety of options such as tank divisions, panel insulation, anti-vortex assemblies, raised ball valve hatches, internal/external bolted, ladders and fittings/valves are offered as appropriate to complete the package.

MATERIALS:

All materials used in the production and assembly of GRP tanks are rigorously tested for potable water compatibility. This includes long term material performance and mechanical properties, non-metallic components, adhesives, etc. Combined, this analysis forms the basis of the extensive QC procedures.

MANUFACTURING PROCESS:

Allied Pumps’ Sectional Tank tank panels are hot press moulded in glass reinforced plastics (GRP) using isophthalic unsaturated polyester resins and electrical glassfibre reinforcement. The panels are moulded at temperatures up to 150ºC under strict quality control disciplines. The process results in strong, consistent panels which are fully cured, dimensionally accurate with sharply defined profiles and smooth surfaces on both faces. Drilling and finishing of the panels is undertaken in a purpose built controlled area, where high technology automated drilling equipment is used to complete production to exacting tolerance levels.

 KEY FEATURES:

  • Designed to BS EN 13280 (2001)
  • Consistent product offering dimensional stability
  • Automated finishing provides a high level of accuracy
  • High grade materials improve resistance to bacterial growth, increased water resistance, and reduced risk of osmotic attack. Colour 00-A-05 to BS 5252
  • UV stabilised materials suitable for global climatic conditions
  • Heavy duty cover resists wind and snow loading
  • Integrated insulation provides U value of 0.6W/m2K, CFC and HCFC free and suitable for water storage up to 38ºC
  • WRAS approved, provides optimum performance under varying climatic conditions
  • Flexibility of panel sizes allows connections to be agreed on-site to suit actual tank location
  • Modular design provides ease of transport and flexibility of assembly on either a prepared flat and level concrete foundation, support walls or bearer beams
  • Panels are rigidly supported by a combination of stainless steel tie rods internally and galvanised box sections externally
  • Installation is carried out by Allied approved installers, fully trained to provide total unified responsibility
  • Designed to BS 6700 to limit structure deformation
  • Tanks compliant to WRAS Section 0135, fittings compliant to Water Regulation 16 (Bylaw 30) for tanks to 4 m depth
