COMPARISION OF VARIOUS TANKS

ENAMEL TANK

Porcelain Enamel Tank - is a trusted & proven technology for inner tank of water heaters. Used widely across the world, it is ideal for long life & trouble free performance in all kinds of water. More than 95% of water heaters produced worldwide are with enamel tanks. Corrosion protection is very good due to fusion of glass layer to metal.

POLYMER TANK

Polymer Tank - this technology is very similar to powder coating & is developed by paint suppliers. It is not widely used and is not approved by BIS for use in water heaters. Corrosion protection is limited by the adhesion of the coating to the metal.

SS TANK

Stainless Steel Tank - this is an outdated technology that manufacturers are moving out of now. Corrosion protection is very poor, particularly in hard water and due to poor welding quality.
