These tanks were manufactured and used as paint holding tanks for a local paint producer.  The contract was for a total of six 4500 litre tanks measuring 3.1 m high by 1.6m diameter. On this occasion the vessels were manufactured from mild steel although stainless steel options have been produced for the same company. The specification required multiple connectors and pads for connection to existing site locations. When installed only the top dish and connection was visible above floor level with the main body and lower cone being accessible from the lower floor. An additional outer jacket held 268 litres and was used temperature regulation of the paint throughout manufacture. The tanks were welded fully internally and externally and the Jacket pressure tested to meet the customers’ requirements.
