Forbes Increase Helically Wound Mandrel Range

Forbes Increase Helically Wound Mandrel Range
06/06/2016

Further to Forbes £1.7 million investment in 2013 for the latest, state of the art machinery for producing helically wound tanks in HDPE PE-100, we are now expanding our production capacity & range of diameters, with the addition of a number of new mandrels.

This latest development will give us the capacity to produce thermoplastic helically wound tanks from 2 metres up to 4 metres diameter, allowing greater flexibility in meeting our customer’s needs.

These additions will enable us to utilise our highly efficient Krah production plant for a much increased range of these highly competitive thermoplastic tanks.

Along with our existing hoop wound GRP tanks, dual laminate thermoplastic/GRP tanks & our traditional thermoplastic fabricated tanks, we have full flexibility in offering the most suitable and cost effective materials for any application, up to capacities of 200’000 litres.
