Stainless Steel Tanks: Anatomy
Manhole Cover (right) provides two-way action, opening horizontally to clear low ceilings, as well as vertically. Stainless steel construction resists corrosion.
Self-supporting top is available in truncated, conical and dished configurations.
Radius corners at both top and bottom of tank add strength and make cleaning easier.
Dimpled cooling jackets. Low-pressure dimpled or channel jackets for glycol and water are available for our stainless steel tanks – also high-pressure flow of freon or ammonia. Both of these systems ensure continuous precise control of temperature.
Dual-action Manhole opens inward, flips over and swings out. The unobstructed 16 x 20 inch opening makes tank cleaning easier. Also available in 20 x 24 inch.
Outside-opening manhole has an 18-inch opening for easy removal of pumace. Also available in 24″ diameter, 16″ x 20″ rectangular outswing and 20″ x 24″ oval outswing. Rectangular door (right) offers 25% more room than the 18″ round and easily fits the shape of rakes and shovels. Adds to the ease of emptying pomace.
