GOAD COMPANY’s Polypropylene Tank Liners are fabricated utilizing 90° thermally formed vertical corners, pressure butt-welded vertical joints, and extrusion welded sidewall to bottom construction utilizing GOAD’s Patented (U.S. Pat. No. 8,133,345) Molded Corner Inserts. These machine welds eliminate the failures associated with difficult hand welds.
Polypropylene Liners can be installed into steel tanks or steel support structures.
NOTE: FM Global Property Loss Prevention Data Sheets recommend using “noncombustible construction for all pickling and electroplating tanks, fume collection and exhaust equipment and ducts” Of thirty plastics tested, polypropylene (PPL) was rated worst as a fire hazard. PPL has been called “diesel fuel in the solid state” (almost all hydrocarbon) and it burns with a maximum heat release rate approaching that of gasoline when burning. Temperatures up to 1093 degrees C (or 2000 degrees F) are reached, sufficient to cause steel to lose strength and buildings collapse.
