A glass-lined tank is a inner water tank protection technology commonly used in water heater for corrosion resistance. These tanks are typically constructed with a steel or stainless steel shell and have their interior surface coated or lined with a layer of glass or enamel.
The primary purpose of glass lining is to provide a highly resistant and non-reactive surface for the containment of corrosive or reactive materials. Glass lining offers several advantages:
- Corrosion Resistance: Glass-lined tanks are highly resistant to corrosion, making them suitable for storing or processing acids, alkalis, and other corrosive substances.
- Chemical Inertness: The glass lining is chemically inert, meaning it does not react with the substances stored or processed inside the tank. This prevents contamination and ensures the purity of the products.
- Thermal Resistance: Glass lining can withstand a wide range of temperatures, making it suitable for both low-temperature and high-temperature heating.
- Easy Maintenance: Glass-lined tanks are relatively easy to clean and maintain due to their smooth and non-porous interior surface.
- Longevity: Properly maintained glass-lined tanks can have a long service life, making them a cost-effective choice for hot water geysers.
These tanks are used in modern day water heater/geysers however do note that galls lined tank can be fragile and prone to chipping or cracking if subjected to mechanical stress so handle glasslined water heater geysers with care while handling & installation.
Still we recommend Glass Lined protection for inner Water Tanks and heating element too specially storage model of Water Geysers.
