Stainless Steel Tank Quality Out Shines Fabriglass
Advances in technology provide consumers and industrial manufacturers alike with the new options in materials, construction and functionality.Cell phones get smaller and sleeker and offer an ever expanding array of applications.New composites and synthetic materials are introduced into to manufacturing processes and industrial applications every day.But, it’s important to remember that what’s new isn’t always what’s best.Storage tank and pressure vessel manufacturers have benefitted greatly from advances in processes and tools to enable more precise and automated product manufacturing.But,in terms of materials used in the construction of the storage tanks and pressure vessels,what’s proven,tested and preferred hasn’t changed.Stainless steel tanks are still the preferred choice in industries where dependability is not an option.
While stainless steel’s reputation as the material of choice for storage tanks and pressure vessels is still largely unchallenged, the emergence of fiberglass, graphite composites and other materials has introduced new options to the marketplace.While these materials may have their selling points, there are several reasons why ASME stainless steel pressure vessels and storage tanks have remained the industry’s first choice for nearly a century.Built to last For manufacturers in the chemical industry and other sectors,buying a reliable storage tank that can withstand wear and tear without compromising its effectiveness is vital to productivity.Because expertly engineered ASME stainless steel tanks provide the best resistance to pressure,temperature and corrosion,they are still considered the most viable storage option.The inherent durability of stainless steel tanks allows them to better withstand the natural elements and rigorous industrial applications than their fiberglass and graphite composite counterparts.Because storage tanks are commonly used to house hazardous chemicals and other liquids,impermeability is of vital importance.Stainless steel tanks are known for their ability to withstand high temperatures and their ability to retaining chemicals,liquids and gases without rusting.
Other benefits In addition to requiring little maintenance,stainless steel tanks and pressure vessels are reasonably priced in comparison to the other less durable composite options.And with the general public becoming more eco-conscious,coupled with an increased push in recent years at the federal level for the private sector to create more green-friendly products,it’s important to remember that stainless steel pressure vessels and storage tanks are 100 percent recyclable.The choice is clear In most cases,it’s true that advents in technology tend to increase the quality of a product.However when it comes to storage tanks and pressure vessels,the quality of stainless steel has withstood the test of time.Despite the introduction of new materials,stainless steel storage tanks and pressure vessels are still the best choice when looking for a product that is durable,compatible and reasonably priced.
