ASME RTP-1 and Section X Class II Tanks and Vessels

Strand Composites manufactures custom designed fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) equipment. As the second fabricator to earn its ASME RTP-1 accreditation and the first to earn its ASME Section X Class II certification, we have been pioneers in the world of high-quality and reliability.

Whether you need a simple storage tank or a very complex, large diameter process vessel, we have the expertise and tooling to manufacture your equipment.


Pipe and Duct

We have multiple CNC and manual stations to manufacture pipe and duct in either filament wound or hand lay-up laminate types. From the simplest of spools to the largest of systems, we have the tooling and the space to manufacture your project.

Field-Erected Vessels and Equipment

Diameter is not an issue for Strand Composites. In 1978, we patented our custom ring-oblation process. This process allows Strand to fabricate all major components of a large diameter FRP vessel (up to 57’ in diameter) in our shop and deliver them to the project site in easily shippable dimensions. Once on site, the components are removed from the shipping crates and erected in a fraction of the time it takes to build a traditional alloy vessel. All work is performed very close to ground level and requires no hot work. This, of course, drastically reduces safety concerns. As with shop vessels, field erected vessels are built to the same high-quality standard and can be stamped as ASME RTP-1 certified.
