FRP tank or Stainless Steel tank, which is better for water softening equipment?

Some customers often struggle with the material of the tank when purchasing water softening equipment, do not know whether to choose stainless steel or FRP, then, what is the difference between the two materials, how to choose the water softening equipment tank material?

First of all, we need to understand the difference between the two materials: stainless steel material has a brightness close to the mirror, with excellent corrosion resistance, formability, compatibility and strength and toughness. Glass fiber reinforced plastic is made of glass fiber reinforced unsaturated polyester, epoxy resin and phenolic resin body, it has the advantages of light weight, high strength, corrosion resistance and good thermal properties.

Stainless steel is one of the most commonly used softened water storage tank materials. The material has the advantages of strong corrosion resistance, easy cleaning, long service life and low maintenance cost, and is suitable for small and medium-sized and large softened water equipment. However, note that the cost of stainless steel materials is higher, and a certain amount of money needs to be invested.
Fiberglass is a commonly used storage tank material and is also the preferred material for softened water storage tanks. It is superior to ordinary steel and stainless steel materials in corrosion resistance, strength, high temperature resistance, corrosion resistance and so on, and has good sealing. In addition, the manufacturing cost of FRP materials is lower, but its processing time is longer.

This depends on the specific industry environment, such as boiler softened water treatment equipment, under 40 tons can usually choose FRP, pressure is no problem, and cost-effective; The food industry mostly uses stainless steel storage tank, which has strong corrosion resistance and abrasion resistance. If it is not a non-special requirement to customize the high temperature water softener tank for high temperature water, under normal pressure, it is actually more cost-effective and more convenient to consider FRP tank. If you are dealing with high temperature water then you must use stainless steel softened water equipment. Customers can choose the right tank according to their own industry and environmental requirements, budget.
