Forbes’ range of helically wound high density polyethylene (HDPE – PE 100) tanks with capacities in excess of 100 cubic metres have now been added to the Thames Water purchasing framework.
Following an investment of £1.7 million in 2013 in a completely new automated plant at their Kelso site, high quality wound tanks have been included in their already extensive range of tanks in a variety of plastic & composite materials which are part of the existing Thames Framework agreement.
Now able to produce seam free tank shells up to 4000mm diameter x 100mm thick, Forbes ‘Krahl tanks have the added advantage of the base plates & roofs being welded by CNC automated equipment ensuring perfect welds.
All tanks are designed & manufactured to BS EN 12573 – 2000. The material of construction HDPE – PE 100 offers exceptional chemical resistance with a design life of 25 years.
