Newell Composites are now manufacturing Composite Reinforced Plastic (FRP or GRP) Food Grade Storage Tanks. These tanks are commonly used in the food processing industry.
For instance uses of these tanks include;
- Fruit and fruit juice
- Milk and cheese products
- Olive fermentation, pickling and transportation
- Wine fermentation and storage
- Meat and fish
- Spring water
Food Grade Tanks – The Process:
Food Grade Tanks are manufactured using the MIT process. After that all vessels are post cured to neutrality which provides the food grade quality. This process is specifically designed and used for chemical resistance purposes.
Tanks are manufactured to have a “mirror-finish” interior. To achieve this we use a male mold with a corrosion resistant interior lining. As a result our tanks can handle acidic and caustic solutions.
Unlike standard food grade tanks we use a black interior to eliminate light. Further more as an extra layer of corrosion barrier we offer an epoxy vinyl ester resin.
Due to the versatility of fibreglass we are able to manufacture a variety of different designs, in effect covering a range of food processing industry requirements.
Our common designs include flat base and cone base tanks.
However customers frequently come to us with a design in mind. If you already have engineer plans and drawings we are able to accurately quote your requirements.
In the event you don’t have engineer specifications or drawings we are able to provide these services on the customers behalf.
