Flow of Reliability in Water Filtration

Tata Steel’s New Materials Business is among the few in India to leverage the properties of FRP for high-pressure vessels used in water filtration. The corrosion-resistant properties of these vessels make them ideal for usage, especially when coupled with their durability, low maintenance requirements and high-quality output. Water filtration is a sustained high-growth segment in India and abroad, driven largely by the scarcity of potable drinking water in the country. Uncontrolled lifting of underground water for agriculture and real estate construction has resulted in contamination of water resources. FRP Pressure Vessels solve most of the issues faced in these segments and help to ensure a supply of potable and clean water.


FRP Pressure Vessels find their uses in water filtration (RO) units for residential, commercial and industrial segments. They act as containers to hold media filters such as sand, gravel and activated charcoal and are operated under pressure provided by means of a pump. This process removes the suspended and dissolved iron and manganese particles, in addition to reducing turbidity. The water then passes through a host of membranes by Reverse Osmosis for further removal of dissolved chemicals. Finally, it becomes safe for consumption.

New Materials Business offers FRP Pressure Vessels,  6”x24” to 79”x79” in height with a capacity of upto 7,000 litres.

Sectors using Pressure Vessels

  • Power
  • Water filtration
  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Large government projects
  • Domestic industries like agriculture, bottling plants and such others

FRP Pressure vessels are a replacement for conventional cylindrical/rectangular tanks.

Their advantages are as follows:

  • Easy to handle and install due to their light weight
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Higher service life as compared to mild steel
  • Aesthetically pleasing
  • Hand holding facility available for large dia
  • Liner available in both PE (Polyethylene) and fibreglass
