Glass Fused Steel Tanks (GFS tanks) alternatively called Glass Lined Steel tanks (GLS tanks) are manufactured with the help of a process that involves the use of GFS panels. These panels are sheets that are made up of stainless steel that are passed through a process where a layer of glass or silicate is fused on them. Basic reason behind fusing glass with steel is to increase the overall durability of the GFS panel.
Single layered stainless steel panels are vulnerable to weathering leading to unexpected decomposition/corrosion of the material and glass fusion is the exact remedy to avoid this decomposition/corrosion. After this fusion process is complete, the final product i.e. GFS panels. There is an increase in its overall strength along with a widening in the acceptable bracket of PH value for alkaline solutions and its resistance of abrasion also sees an increase.

Technology and Process for Glass Fused Steel Tanks
A layer of glass is fused into steel tank panels that are lined with glass enamel both inside and outside. This enamel is made up of a solid, smooth, and shiny cover of silicate and fused with steel tank panels in a specially designed furnace that is heated upto temperatures that range between 780 to 900 degrees Celsius. These steel panels that form the tank shell become highly durable after being processed with the infusion of glass coats on both the inner and outer layers of the panels. These sheets are then attached with special high-grade bolts and sealed with the help of constantly flexible silicones (sealants).
Furthermore, both installation materials and shell accessories are processed thoroughly with the help of surface treatment. These Glass Fused Steel Tanks or Glass Lined Steel tanks are the best choice when you want to store fluids or even solid materials of any nature. The USP (unique selling point) of these tanks is that they are FM Global approved & are mostly used as an industrial water storage tank. These GFS/GLS tanks are a basic requirement that you need to install at places dealing in environmental technology facilities namely WasteWater Treatment, Fire fighting Water storage, and Anaerobic Digester Tank. Everyday Steels has a variety of offerings in the GFS/GLS tanks segment. You can have a detailed look at them by visiting their homepage.
