farmatic f-protect System

Enamelled steel tanks are excellently protected against corrosion. However, edges of the single panels are sensitive against a damage of the enamel layer and are therefore usually covered with the sealing material Sikaflex. The lifetime of this elastic sealing material in the tank is reduced especially at higher temperatures and by mechanical stress.

Our long-time employee Jörg Langhein had the brilliant idea for further improving the quality of the farmatic tanks. He simply clamped a stainless steel strip under the screws, which connect the panels. This stainless steel strip protects the Sikaflex against mechanical and chemical attacks. Internally we always called this protecting strip „Langhein-strip“ in honour of the inventor. Meanwhile we received the patent and obtained a brand protection for the term f-protect.

With this intelligent solution we now can use our tanks without worrying also for higher temperatures, abrasive media and at chemical stress.
