Tank Advanced Process Technology (TAPT) from TI Automotive is a plastic blow-molding manufacturing technique that provides flexibility to convert plastic fuel tanks into valued solutions. Developed as an enabling technology to optimize fuel-slosh prevention, the TAPT process allows for manufacture of pressurized plastic fuel tanks for the hybrid-electric vehicle (HEV) market. Because an HEV rarely uses the gas engine to purge tank vapors from the carbon canister in the emissions system, pressure can build over time and temperature rise in the fuel tank. TAPT technology allows makers of HEVs to convert from heavy steel tanks of today into quiet, lightweight plastic tanks on future applications.
