Eastern Reliability

Fiberglass-Reinforced Plastic (FRP) Tanks

Eastern Reliability offers a broad array of fiberglass tanks, including storage tanks. Our plant (Justin Tanks) is one of the few in the industry which was specifically designed and constructed to build Fiberglass-Reinforced Plastic (FRP) tanks and equipment. Using multi-station vertical and horizontal tank winders, Justin Tanks provides tanks with diameters ranging from 3 to 14 feet. FRP tanks come with many advantages as they are easy and quick to install, they are four times lighter than steel and they won’t rust like steel, so no seal replacement and no repainting are needed.

Our fiberglass tanks are designed and manufactured to meet or exceed industry standards to insure long and trouble-free service as they are engineered for the specific service conditions required by our customers. The final tank design depends on factors such as operating temperature, chemical environment, specific gravity, wind, seismic loading, agitation, and pressure or vacuum operating conditions. FRP tanks provide excellent corrosion resistance in a variety of environments including those with chlorides and other harmful substances, and they are used to store petroleum and other fuels, water and wastewater, chemicals, food products, and other materials.

Compact, Complete and Ready to Use

Fiberglass Storage Tanks

Fiberglass Water Tanks

FRP tanks are fabricated utilizing both contact-molded and filament-winding processes based on RTP1 design standards. Each tank is individually designed and fabricated to meet the user's specifications. An extensive quality and testing program assure the user the equipment will meet its intended service for years to come. Eastern Reliability handles all the detailed engineering, manufacturing, and transportation of all the components of your storage tank. Our products are delivered ready-for-use.

We have a history of delivering cost-effective, durable, and practical FRP chemical and industrial storage tanks that work well under all conditions.

Storage tanks can be installed indoors and outdoors. With isolated tanks, stored liquids can be heated and kept warm easily. There are also non-isolated tanks for other types of uses. No matter where they’re installed, storage tanks work well in all types of environments. They require minimal installation effort, either on a concrete slab base or crushed stone surface, avoiding the need for excavation into the permafrost or rough ground.
