Problems encountered with the containment of severely corrosive chemicals can easily be overcome by the use MOSDEN GRP Storage Tanks. These tanks are manufactured by means of controlled hand contact moulding, using specific weights of both Fibreglass chopped strand mat and woven roving
reinforcements, thereby ensuring uniform isotropic strength orientation. Reinforcements are applied using a chemically resistant resin system individually selected for the tanks intended service.
MOSDEN fabrication abilities are extensive and cylindrical tanks can be made to a wide range of configurations including vertical & horizontal tanks complete with either flat bottoms, conical bottoms or dished bottoms. Tanks can be supported on a flat base, annular ring, support legs or a self supporting skirt. Tanks are supplied with integrally moulded full – face nozzles, manways and insect proof vents. This varied capability of MOSDEN GRP has made it possible to offer an economical storage tank to suit the exact operating conditions. This enables the often sought after but seldom found combination of standardisation in production with the ability to customise the tank to meet specific customer requirements.
MOSDEN tanks can be supplied with a range of optional extras including liquid level indicator strips, hinged or bolted manways, fittings, vents and catladder cleats. Tanks can be finished in a variety of U V Stabilised colours to meet customer requirements.
To date MOSDEN have manufactured well over 4000 GRP tanks for numerous chemical duties. These tanks have ranged in size from ø 450 – ø 4000 diameter, the larger capable of holding over 100 000 litres.
All MOSDEN GRP tanks are designed in accordance with British Standards BS 4994 – 1987- ‘Specification for Vessels & Tanks in Reinforced Plastics’. Design calculations are based on the tanks contents, SG and operating conditions as specified by the end user. A comprehensive design & data sheet is available to assist the engineer in easily capturing his specific requirements.
MOSDEN Chemical Storage and Process tanks have proved themselves to be reliable, durable, cost effective and maintenance free. To date there are numerous installations of Chemical Storage Tanks throughout South Africa and Sub Saharan Africa that have been in service for well over 25 years.
