All tanks are designed by an in-house professional engineer for design purposes, including a detailed QC program and a QC lab to keep tank production according to RTP-1 standards.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. What are Design Tanks manufacturing standards? ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make 497 representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations aztm to use.

The dimensions and tolerances, as well as the workmanship, finish and appearance are also detailed. This specification does qstm cover the design of vessels intended for pressure above hydrostatic, vacuum conditions, except as classified herein, or vessels intended for use with liquids heated above their flash points.

Included are requirements for materials, properties, design, construction, dimensions, tolerances, workmanship, and appearance. The reinforcement should be a chopped-strand mat, a nonwoven biaxial or unidirectal fabric, a woven roving, or a surface mat.

Includes requirements for materials, properties, design, construction, dimension, tolerance, workmanship, and appearance. This specification covers cylindrical tanks fabricated c contact molding for above-ground vertical 4079, to contain aggressive chemicals at essentially atmospheric pressure, and made of a commercial-grade polyester or vinyl ester, resin.


The Design Tanks Difference: Exceeding The Standards | Design Tanks

The tanks are classified as type I and II according to the operating pressure or vacuum levels, and the safety factor required for external pressure. Materials shall be tested and the individual grades shall conform to specified values of design requirements such as straight shell, external pressure, top head, bottom head, open-top tanks, joints, fittings, hold-down lugs, and lifting lugs; laminate construction requirements such as structural tank, joints, and fittings and accessories; and other requirements such as physical properties, chemical resistance of resin, glass content, tensile strength, flexural properties and degree of cure.

This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. There is no known ISO equivalent to this standard.

The values given in parentheses are provided for information purposes only. While Design Tanks has elected not to seek certification at this time, we meet and exceed many of the 40997 standards without the sstm costs associated with certification.

The three predominant standards today that relate to fiberglass tanks and vessels are: Design Tanks complies with the design strength requirements of ASTM Dutilizing a rigorous in-line and end-of-line quality control process plus testing of all resins and incoming materials.

Applies to manufacturing standards for Design Tanks contact-molded small- and medium-sized tanks. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. The tanks are further classified as grade 1 and 2 according to the generic types of thermoset resin. We build a heavier, more robust tank that always exceeds the standard for wall thickness.

It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. Just two of the many ways Design Tanks rises above the fray without additional costs to our customers!


Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Design Tanks stores resins in a climate-controlled storage area to eliminate production variances related to temperature changes.

As a custom manufacturer asmt in meeting the unique needs of our customers, our exposure to these different standards is much higher than for the manufacturer that produces a cookie cutter tank.

The resin used shall be a commercial grade, corrosion-resistant thermoset. For example, RTP-1 does not require a fabricator to keep materials in an environmentally controlled storage area prior to manufacturing. The customer receives a tank that exceeds the standard! Certified fabricators can provide an RTP-1 stamp on qualifying tanks.

ASME RTP-1 As a custom manufacturer specializing in meeting the unique needs of our customers, our exposure to these different standards is much higher than for the manufacturer that produces a cookie cutter tank.

The Design Tanks Difference: The result is a quality product with a 4079 low incidence of tank failure.
