Every so often we get feedback on one of our heads. In this case one of our Stainless Steel Tank heads. We made some small dished only tank heads and our customer turned them into a Food grade mirror for inspecting inside of food production machines. Glass could not be used due to the possibility of it breaking and getting in the food products.
We have added a new area to our offerings. We have noticed an increased need to build tanks in a hurry. Our new page lists stock items due to cancellations. If you are flexible in your size, this might be an option for you. The new page lists the stainless steel tank heads and Baffles as well as the Aluminum tank heads and baffles that we have in stock. These can ship almost immediately. But, we are not selling just the heads from the combo.
Here is the link:
We are honored to be part of the Elon Musk sponsored Hyper-loop project. We donated heads to the California State University, Sacramento team. What an amazing project with an amazing team. Keep up the good work!
Our Dished and Flared Aluminum tank head design is often times used for internal stiffening heads or surge baffles. Recently we have done some dished and flared stainless steel tank heads that are lids for vats. They utilize the flat flange area for the seal on the vat or vertical barrel. The flat flange area can vary anywhere from 1/4″ up to 3 or 4″. Just tell us what you need.
Wisconsin Stainless Head Mfg., Inc. has the dies to press a 20″ manway into Stainless Steel tank heads. The same tooling can also be used for Aluminum Tank heads. This allows the heads to be used as surge baffles and stiffening heads with out wasting the man hours welding in a ring to put the strength back in the head after cutting the manway. They also allow a large enough opening for visual inspections of the completed tank.
We have just started doing work with Stainless Steel Tank Heads with heat transfer jackets. This is something we have been asked about over the years and we are now able to offer.
After being in the tank head business for 31 years we still get surprised when customers share the end use photos. In this instance you can see a 71″ dished only Aluminum Tank Head that we made for the entryway of an urban apartment complex. They welded mounting plates to the back and 24k gold leafed the entire dish. Creativity at its finest!
As I was walking through the production area this morning I saw an interesting sight. Three different materials, all polished, all right next to each other. This shows exactly what our polishing department can do in three different mediums. Aluminum Tank heads can get a brite finish or as you see on the left what we call a Brite Re-buffed finish. Stainless Steel Tank heads can have several different finishes. Pictured in the center is a #4 rotary finish. Â Stainless Steel Tank heads can also get the Brite Re-buffed finish for the mirror look if needed. Copper Tank heads are either Brite Re-buffed as pictured or left mill and then left to oxidize and turn green. We are very proud of our polishing dept. Thank you!
We often get asked, “Can I order just 1 or 2.” Of coarse! This is a perfect example of our ability to meet customer needs. We recently completed a carbon steel tank heads job for a paint mixing plant. This job required 1 or 2 heads of every size in 2″ increments starting at 24″ and going up to 54″. This job required 15 different sizes and the largest quantity was 4 of any one size. In summary, no job is too small!
