What is a pressure tank and what are its uses?

Pressure tanks are carefully engineered and fabricated stainless steel vessels, engineered and manufactured to the highest international standards to ensure safety and quality. The advantage of a pressure tank versus an ambient pressure tank is that nitrogen or other gases can be put on top of the product as a blanket (nitrogen blanket) because the nitrogen is heavier than most gases it forces the others out and provides a nitrogen blanket on top of the product. Additionally, a by utilizing pressure you are able to force viscous liquids out of the container through the bottom discharge. With a pressure container you are able to evacuate more of your product and be more efficient with the discharge and utilization of the product.

The versatility of these tanks provides for have multipurpose properties and can be perfect to for industrial use where quality control, the sanitation characteristics of stainless steel and aseptic or sterile conditions are required.
