PROTEC WATER products are Quality Assured under BS EN ISO 9001:2000 – manufactured in a modern manufacturing plant ensuring the highest standard of quality control. Protector separators are filament wound by an advanced, patented, chop hoop filament winding process. This process produces not only circumferential strength as found in helical wound tanks, but also high longitudinal strength. The interlaminar shear strength permits tanks to be cut for manholes and pipework without undue loss in strength.
The dished ends are incorporated during the filament winding process, enabling tanks to be moulded and completed as virtually ‘one piece’ units. The manufacturing process is carefully monitored with a digital read out system. Chopping glass, winding glass, the resin-rich inner layer and main laminate resins are kept within specification parameters, thus minimising human error. Quality control procedures require each tank to be carefully inspected and tested.
All of the Protector range have been individually engineered to handle the toughest environmental situations and proven in the toughest environments such as high-water tables and volcanic soils. Problems in these areas have been solved with the installation of the HORIZONTAL TANKS.
The Packaged HORIZONTAL TANKS are engineered to the following Standards:BS4994 – 1987, AS/NZS 1546.1:1998. Hydraulic and civil engineering can also be provided to your requirements.
Fibreglass Reinforced Polymer are strengthened materials that shows higher resistance to the corrosion which makes them ideal to be implemented for the tanks. They can be exposed to the water for years without being corrupted. Light weight, being resistant to high temperature and easy on-site installation are some of the desirable features that FRP indicates. Furthermore, FRP plates have higher mechanical strength which enables them to carry higher loads compared to plastics.
Even though the HORIZONTAL TANKS FRP casing and filter casing is relatively light weight, pound for pound they are stronger than alternative structures. The HORIZONTAL TANKS has no joins leaving a smooth, clean internal surface that resists scum and sludge build up and allows no leakage to the external environment. The lightweight configuration of the HORIZONTAL TANKS simplifies handling and reduces costs in transport, labour and handling down time.
