In 2018, FRP Manufacturing was contracted by a major midstream company to fabricate 2-200 BBL caustic storage tanks for a gas plant located at Wapiti, Alberta.
The fiberglass tanks were fabricated using a corrosion resin system suitable for a wide range of chemicals and acids. The design pressure of the storage tanks was 16 oz. The overall design and documentation requirements were reviewed and stamped by a P.Eng.
Urethane foam with an r value of 6 per inch was applied to the tanks; the foam was coated with a protective elastomer top coat, which included a UV inhibitor. FRP Manufacturing provided accessories including: custom immersion heaters, steel skids, lock-down thief hatches, and caged steel ladder painted Safety Yellow. All accessories were trial fitted prior to shipment.
