So many of the most important and widespread foods are kept in storage tanks. Flour, sugar, salt, and rice all spend time in storage tanks before making their way to consumer’s homes. Of course, whenever food is involved, choosing a top quality tank that best suits your needs becomes even more important than usual. There are a variety of products out there, so rest assured, that you will be able to find the right food grade water tank to hold your food products!
Food storage tanks can be produced using a variety of materials, two very well-known options being coated carbon steel and stainless steel. To ensure food safety, carbon steel will typically undergo a process of being treated with an FDA approved coating and cured thermally. Whereas stainless steel food tanks will be prepped with a chemical wash inside and out before being sent off. But did you know that steel was not your only option for food storage tanks? Not at all! Fiberglass tanks, or FRP tanks for short, can also be used to store food!
Fiberglass tanks have the benefit of being generally lighter and more affordable than other food tanks on the market, but that doesn’t make them any less good quality! In fact, fiberglass food grade water storage tanks are where we at Belding Tank got out start!
