FOOD STORAGE TANKS

Processed food storage is offered in shop welded, field-welded, and bolted storage tanks for milling, baking and food processing applications. Food grade storage tanks are manufactured in coated carbon steel and stainless steel construction. Designed and customized per your requirements, Tank Connection designs are certified to nationally and and locally recognized codes as required.

TYPES OF PRODUCTS USED IN OUR FOOD STORAGE TANKS:

Typical food storage products: Flour, starch, sugar, rice, salt, soybean meal, cornmeal, DDG, corn gluten, dextrose, various meals, various flours, various processed foods, etc. Specialized FDA approved coatings are applied to carbon steel storage tanks and thermally cured to the substrate surface in a controlled environment. Stainless steel storage tanks are chemically washed internally (for process food product protection) and externally (for aesthetic appearance) prior to shipment.

Typical food grade weld profiles are available as “smooth not flush”, “flush” and “flush and polished” to meet your requirements.
