    Hello, I bought the below tanks from Zhongde a few years ago and had them shipped to London, UK:

    5 x 3000L Conical FV's
    1 x 5000L HLT
    1 x 4000L CLT

    I was extremely impressed with them and still am. So it was a very good choice as we saved a small fortune and the quality is just as good as sourcing from anywhere as in Europe.

    We are in the market for some new FV's now and I wondered if anyone has dealt with Zhongde lately? If so what was the service like and the quality of the equipment delivered?

    I took a massive risk buying the equipment from China the first time around and even though the tanks are great I am a little more hesitant this time around. Companies in China can change quite a lot so would be great to hear anyones recent experiences with them or any other Chinese fabricators.

    Thank you for your replies in advance.

    Cheers

At least you can see other breweries in the UK using them, and have no currency or communication / design problems etc. I haven't used Zhongde, but my admittedly limited experience of Chinese kit is that I would rather pay a bit more to get exactly what I want produced locally. I would also consider getting a detailed spec covering everything you do or want to do. My experience is that suppliers give you a comparatively standardised (to them) piece of kit, which can omit what you consider essential or add in what you consider unnecessary kit.
    I have heard terrible things about Zhongde. All my equipment is Chinese however and I am very satissfied with it, in fact I just ordered two new 120HL tanks. PM me if you'd like and I'd be happy to discuss it more in detail.

    My experience was 180 degrees out.

    Zhongde = Terrible quality. No possible way they could even remotely compare with quality German equipment (such as K-S). I've been involved with them twice. Never again.

    I haven't had any experience with Zhongde. However, I just quoted a bottling line from Zhandong HG machinery and wondered if you know them or anyone who bought bottling equipment from China?

    Thanks
