Variable Capacity Tanks

This is an upgraded version of the basic Plain Storage Tanks that we offer. All of these Variable Capacity Storage Tanks are supplied with a basic type of lid, a strong three legged stand to hold the tank securely, and two 1” ball valve type taps. The additional lid is a variable capacity type lid that allows the user to position the lid at any height inside the tank that they wish. 

This is a 304 Stainless Steel Tank, available in sizes from 200L up to 1000L, with an attractive engine turn (swirled) pattern finish on the external walls. The conical tank shape allows for all of the contents to be drained out once the bottom tap has been opened, ensuring that nothing is left behind (either valuable product, or cleaning liquids.) Two taps are included with every storage tank, the lower of which is connected to the conical bottom, and another which is fitted at the lower end of the side wall, and is ideally suited as a sample valve. A three-legged stand is included with every tank. A standard lid is also included, plus a variable capacity ‘floating type’ lid is included with this tank option. 

The variable capacity lid has a smaller diameter than the standard lid, and so can fit inside the stainless tank. An inflatable tube which fits around the circumference of the lid allows the user to select any height that they would like the lid to be positioned at.

Floating lid tank

Although the lid doesn’t actually float, this description is often used when talking about a variable capacity lid because the lid appears to float above the level of the liquid inside the tank. In fact, the lid is being held in position because of the tube that is inflated around the rim of the lid, which wedges the lid at any chosen height.

Oil floating lid

A slightly inferior version of the inflatable type lid that we supply. These lids don’t have the same tube around their circumference, which holds the lid at a certain height. Instead, this lid uses a type of oil or Vaseline to create a seal against the inside of the tank wall.


With an ever growing client base here at Latimer Stainless, we are seeing our Stainless Steel Containers, Tanks and Vessels being used for many other uses in a wide variety of industries.
