Let us put our unmatched experience to work for you. LFM has been building fiberglass reinforced plastic tanks and process vessels for a wide range of applications since 1974. We utilize the latest in chop and filament winding equipment available in the industry today, thus supplying our customers with the highest quality fiberglass structures on the market. Our 83,000 square feet production facility is situated on 35 acres just east of Giddings, Texas (50 miles east of Austin).
LFM builds its fiberglass potable water tanks to provide a long and trouble-free service life. Our fiberglass tanks are built to meet or exceed the strict requirements of ASTM D3299 and ANS/AWWA D120 specifications to assure our customers of the highest structural integrity, durability and corrosive resistance. We maintain individual inspection reports for each tank; recording such information as resin system used, actual material usage, fittings, accessories and destination. The inspection reports are filed for future reference and copies are available upon request. Our excellent inspection program assures that each of our customers receive the highest quality fiberglass products available. At LFM we are committed to providing our customers with the best fiberglass products possible.
LFM knows the importance of keeping your water fresh and clean. Our fiberglass potable water tanks are corrosive resistant to the minerals and chemicals found in water. Steel tanks may rust and corrode, which affects the quality of the water stored inside. Our fiberglass potable water tanks will continue to keep your water fresh and clean with no corrosion to the tank. LFM’s fiberglass potable water tanks are FDA, USDA, and AWWA approved for storage of potable water.
Our fiberglass potable water tanks eliminate the need for additional corrosion protection, such as exterior painting and cathodic protection systems for above ground and underground installations. Because of the anti-corrosive nature of our fiberglass tanks, the need for costly maintenance and repainting is eliminated, thus offering considerable savings when compared to steel tanks. And because our fiberglass potable water tanks are corrosion- free, the risk of leakage and content contamination is greatly reduced.
Our fiberglass potable water tanks are an excellent economic value when compared to steel tanks. A fiberglass tank from LFM weighs approximately 60% less than a steel tank; which makes installation easier and less time consuming, saving the customer money in the long run. Also, our fiberglass tanks save money because they are durable and have a longer service life than steel tanks.
LFM’s fiberglass products are designed and manufactured for your specific application. We equal or exceed industry standards to insure long and trouble-free service. Our fiberglass tanks are engineered for 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. We maintain individual inspection reports for each tank; recording resin system used, actual material usage, fittings, accessories, recommended end use and destination.
Our fiberglass potable water tanks are manufactured to meet our customers required dimensions. Standard tanks are available in diameters from 2 feet through 15.5 feet. LFM can also custom design and manufacture fiberglass potable water tanks for almost any size, shape or service requested.
