FRP for Containment
At Beetle we offer FRP products designed for containment that provide a cost-effective solution and long lasting performance for many industrial applications. Our FRP containment products are durable and will perform in the harshest environments; they have great dimensional stability and won’t creep under proper operating conditions. The strength and corrosion resistance of FRP tanks is unmatched by stainless steel or other poly tanks. At Beetle, we incorporate premium resins and materials with quality controlled manufacturing to produce superior containment products.
Our FRP can be formulated to meet your industry specifications and requirements. For example, corrosion, abrasion, and UV resistant, flame and smoke retardant—to name a few. Our products are perfect for applications involving hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, and other corrosive media. Similarly, we offer a wide range of surface treatments to further enhance your project.
Key Benefits of Using FRP for Containment
- Corrosion Resistance
- High Strength-to-weight ratio, good dimensional stability, durability
- Long life cycles, reduced maintenance cost
- Design Flexibility
CAPACITY, CAPABILITY, SOLUTIONS
Leverage our numerous molding technologies and resins so that you can gain the full spectrum of FRP composite options available. Our containment structures are manufactured using hand lay-up, chop, chop-hoop, and filament wound methods. With respect to tanks and vessels, we offer cylindrical vertical or horizontal with flat, cone, dished, and sloped tops and bottoms.
From small scale projects to massive complex industrial structures, from new design to incremental improvements; we have precision capabilities and the capacity to generate high quality turnkey solutions. We are confident that our containment solutions will provide you with a safe and cost-effective answer for handling wet, dry, gas, and slurry media.
FRP Containment Applications
- Mining and Minerals
- Chemical Processing
- Air Pollution Control

We offer a wide range of custom FRP containment products including tanks, vessels, and basins. We have the experience and know-how to incorporate different design variations for each of our basic containment products. At Beetle we understand FRP and how to leverage design flexibility to optimize your project
Custom FRP Containment with Design Flexibility
- Basins or Other Secondary Containment
CUSTOM COMPONENTS AND FITTINGS
We offer custom components and fittings that will interface with your existing or new design. For example, access ports, manways, spargers, distributors, baffles, weirs, valves, drains, dip tubes, level gauges, overflow nozzles, spray nozzles, and other internals—among much else.
CUSTOM DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS
Our FRP will add functionality, safety, and aesthetics to your project. Every containment product is unique and will require special design considerations. Allow our team of engineers and drafters to work with you to address your containment needs.
Key Design Considerations
- Internal and External Pressure
- Environmental Loads
- Stress and Strain (hoop stress, axial strain)
- Unloading and Reloading the Media
- Condensate Removal
- Secondary Containment
- Support Systems
