Glass Fused to Steel Bolted Tanks

Phillips Tank & Structure can provide installation and repair of Glass-Fused-to-Steel bolted storage tanks in the United States, it's territories, and the Pacific Island nations.

Glass-fused bolted tanks are manufactured by bonding chemically inert glass to steel sheets. Joining these materials allows the bolted storage tank to withstand corrosion and wear in harsh environments.

Due to the ease of manufacture, installation, and maintenance, glass-fused bolted tanks offer lower operational costs when used as designed for compatible applications. Panels are bolted together at ground level, then elevated on jacks to add another ring of panels.

A wide range of roof options and accessories are available to meet the needs of your facility, such as custom hatches, gauging, temperature probes, nozzles, and tank access ladder and platforms.

At PTS we “Lead with Engineering.” No two tank projects are alike, so we rely on our industry-leading Engineering Group to custom design the appropriate tank system for each application.
