Comparison between GFS Tank and Stainless Steel Tank

Corrosion resistance

● Glass Lining Steel panel has good corrosion resistance against various chemical materials.
⇒Less cost to various applications

● Stainless Steel panel has inferior corrosion resistance for chloride.
⇒Not appropriate for some waste water treatment

 

Cost efficiency

● High intensity Glass Lining
⇒Less cost to various applications

● Stainless Steel panel is not able to realize strength and cost at the same time.
⇒Large cost has no good cost efficiency.

 

Robustness against environment

● Glass Lined Steel panel is suitable for the usage under severe environment such as seashore and aerial pollution.

● stainless Steel panel is vulnerable to severe environment and reduce product life time.
