The acceptance of plastics materials by engineers was initially cautious but steady, yet plastics tanks are now so widely used that they now set the standards against which performance is judged.
Exceptional corrosion resistance, lack of taint, ease of transport and installation, durability, minimal maintenance. The merits of Forbes Plastics tanks are now recognised in virtually every industry.
Forbes has always been committed to testing and researching new materials and new technologies and has recently invested over 300,000.00 in large factory extension enabling the latest automated manufacturing equipment to be installed to ensure that we continue to offer our customers the most appropriate products for their needs at the best value.
Forbes standard VT ranges offer superb chemical resistance. They are fabricated using either Polypropylene or high density Polyethylene which meet the requirements of the WRc or FDA. Polypropylene is also available to comply with the more stringent requirements of the DWI please ask for details.
All tanks are designed to the latest standards (either BS EN 12573 or DVS 2205) and are available fabricated using either black coloured material (which is fully UV stabilised and suitable for outdoor or indoor installations, unlike some other coloured polypropylene) or natural translucent white material (which is suitable for indoor installations only, not available in HDPE).
The VTF range is available with either an open top (with or without a cover) or with an enclosed top with an access manway. The design assumes a nominal SG of 1.2, ambient operating temperature and atmospheric operating pressure (other operating conditions can of course be accommodated). Alternative larger tanks up to 60M³ capacity and non standard sizes are now available). PLEASE ASK US TO QUOTE AGAINST YOUR SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS.
