Versatile Process and Surge Tanks Offer a Variety of Uses

Brock’s polyethylene tanks are ideal for a variety of uses requiring a low-cost, low-capacity tank. Brock offers two tank models: a six-foot (1.8 m) diameter, 3,000-pound (1.4 MT) capacity model and a smaller 53-inch (1.4 m) diameter unit with a 1,500-pound (680 kg) capacity.

Both of these process and surge tanks can be used to hold a wide variety of materials, including free-flowing powders, plastic pellets and some corrosive materials. They offer low fill heights so you can easily place them inside your building. They were also designed to accept a variety of boots available for use with many material handling systems, including Brock’s famous FLEX-AUGER® PLUS Delivery System.

6-foot (1.8 meter) or 53-inch (1.4 meter)
Available Capacities
3,000-pound (1.4 metric ton) or 1,500-pound (680 kilograms)
