Commercial Tanks and Vats

Our stainless steel tanks, made right here in Perth, aren’t just well-designed but also highly functional. Customising these tanks ensures they perfectly match your operational needs, providing improved functionality, durability, and efficiency.

Whether you need a tank for oil, beverages, medical, or food manufacturing, we can create a design that suits your specific industry. When crafting custom stainless steel tanks, we prioritise your specific requirements and preferences to ensure they serve their purpose effectively. Here is our approach when designing your custom tank:


Functional requirements: Determine the functional specifications of the tank based on your beverage manufacturing process. Consider factors such as the volume capacity, materials of construction (e.g., stainless steel for food-grade applications), insulation requirements, temperature control, mixing or agitation mechanisms, sanitary fittings, and access points for cleaning and maintenance. These functional aspects ensure that the tank meets the necessary standards for beverage production and facilitates efficient and safe manufacturing processes.

Regulatory compliance: Ensure that the tank design complies with relevant regulations and standards for beverage manufacturing, such as food safety guidelines, sanitary requirements, and industry-specific regulations. Adhering to these regulations is crucial to maintain product quality, safety, and compliance with legal requirements.

Collaboration with experts: Work closely with engineers, manufacturers, and specialists experienced in designing and fabricating tanks for beverage manufacturing. They can provide valuable insights, guidance, and technical expertise to ensure that the tank design meets both aesthetic and functional requirements. Collaborating with professionals who understand the unique needs of beverage production can help you create an optimal tank design.

Testing and validation: Once the tank is designed and manufactured, it’s important to conduct thorough testing and validation to ensure its functionality and performance. This may include pressure testing, leak testing, temperature control validation, and other relevant tests to verify that the tank meets the required standards and specifications.


Remember to consider factors such as ease of cleaning, maintenance requirements, and scalability to accommodate future growth when designing your beverage manufacturing tank. By balancing the design aspect and functional requirements, you can create a tank that not only meets your beverage manufacturing needs but also enhances the visual appeal and branding of your facility.
