Circular Fiberglass Aquaculture Tanks are designed and built with the customer in mind. Every tank goes through a 4 set process when being fabricated; Gel-Coating, Skim Coating, Main Lay-up and Installation of Accessories. Each step along the way is documented to ensure a high quality tank is being produced. Material batch numbers, cure times, room temperatures and thickness of parts are recorded and filled.
GFI manufactures each tank in accordance to CAN/CSA- B66-M90 standards, and now is pleased to offer a wide selection of custom potable water tanks built-in accordance with NSF/ANSI61 standards.
The mould is first Gel-Coated and left to cure for 4 to 5 hours. An interior Gel-Coat finish allows farm operators to clean tanks very easily due to the smooth surface. Gel-Coats also create a non- porous surface which prevents bacteria from forming inside of tank.
The Skim Coat is a light pass of fiberglass that allows laminators to visually see any trapped air pockets. A good Skim Coat is key to the durability of the tank.
