Kilfrost already looking forward to yet another severe winter…

Kilfrost, the global leader in de/anti-icing products are gearing up ready for yet another harsh winter period with the purchase from Forbes of three new 60,000 litre capacity de-icer product storage tanks for their production plant in Haltwhistle, Northumberland. This latest batch of tanks will bring their finished product storage capacity to nearly half a million litres in Kilfrost Logoeight GRP storage tanks. They also have in excess of one million litres storage in other tanks – ready for the harshest of winters!

Over the past few years, Kilfrost have purchased a number of other Forbes tanks which are used for a variety of raw ingredient storage, as well as processing purposes and of course lots of de-icer storage. The various tanks provided are manufactured using either Polypropylene material, dual laminates (GRP with polypropylene inner shell) or all GRP construction, manufactured by the ‘chop-hoop’ filament winding process – all designed to comply with the latest British Standards.

Managing Director of Forbes Melvyn Jupp commented, ‘we are delighted that Kilfrost continue to entrust us to deliver their varied tank requirements, although from a personal point of view I am hoping for a warmer winter this year’!

Forbes have also recently completed the commission of a new manufacturing plant for the production of large helix spiral wound thermoplastic tanks using both HDPE (PE100) & Polypropylene materials with capacities available up to 100’000 litres – ‘this will enhance and expand our already extensive manufacturing capabilities’  said Melvyn.
