Thermal Retention System

Plas-Tanks' Plasta-Therm® Thermal Retention System eliminates the heating concerns of old-fashioned wrap around tape or heating plates. It drastically reduces operating costs with a system that is simple, efficient, and trouble-free.

Plasta-Therm® is available with any of the FRP tanks that Plas-Tanks designs and manufactures. It can be readily installed in the field or in existing FRP tanks.

What is Plasta-Therm®?
The Plasta-Therm® heating element consists of a fine-gauge, standard, nickel clad resistance wire encapsulated in braided "E" grade fiberglass. Plas-Tanks lays the Plasta-Therm® element near the bottom of the FRP tank and seals it into the structure with a 120-mil barrier.

The Plasta-Therm® element thus becomes an integral part of the tank itself. Protected by its own fiberglass braiding and by the fiberglass of the tank both above it and beneath it, the element is almost damage-proof.

Experience the Benefits of Plasta-Therm® vs. Wrap Around Tape

  • Plasta-Therm® is much more efficient than outside, wrap-around tape.
    Plasta-Therm® introduces heat at the bottom of the tank so that the heat can do what it does naturally: rise directly into the liquid above it. Wrap-around tape, on the other hand, has to transmit heat sideways through thick, insulating FRP walls. Hence Plasta-Therm® produces more usable heat per KWH of electricity than is possible with conventional outside tape.

  • The Plasta-Therm® element is controlled by a solid-state system that senses the temperature of the contents of the tank.
    The much more complicated capillary bulb thermostat used with wrap-around tape reacts to the temperature of the tape itself – not to the tank's contents.

  • The Plasta-Therm® solid-state system maintains a temperature of ±3°F
    This is a degree of accuracy that is virtually impossible to achieve with conventional tape!

  • The Plasta-Therm® system eliminates the need for troublesome thermowells, capillary ports, and jumper wires.
Plas-Tanks' Plasta-Therm® Thermal Retention System solves the problems that have long been considered necessary evils of outside heating tapes. More important, it provides the most accurate, efficient, reliable method of heating tanks ever developed.
