    Good Priced Tanks

    Our brewery is looking at expanding. Our original equipment came from China and took 6-7 months to get here after ordered. The owner wants to order from the same place but we are at capacity and every month I have to wait is going to be a struggle. Does anyone have any advice on where I can get some US/Canadian/Mexican tanks that are a good price yet not total trash? We are looking for 2 20bbl fermenters and 3 20bbl brites.

    And yes, I am obviously looking for used equipment also. But that's easier said than done.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Jacketed but not insulated/clad

    A good way to buy American made tanks but try to reduce costs is to ask them to make your fermenters and brite tanks to have all of the needed glycol jackets but not have the layer of insulation and extra layer of stainless steel clad over the insulation. I know Practical Fusion out of Oregon makes a lot of tanks in this manner.

    Yes I am planning on that. That's how our tanks are now. I am trying to steer away from Practical Fusion. A colleague of mine has them at his brewery and has had trouble with them.

    Thanks though.

    What manufacturer from China did you get your original tanks from? We are looking at possibly ordering direct from China and trying to find a reputable manufacturer. Thanks for letting me know about Practical Fusion, I do not have any experience with them. I just know that a lot of their designs are glycol jacket only.

    Thanks!

    For the most part they have been pretty good so far, only been in use 9 months. I have no complaints with the fermenters or the brites and they are really cheap. Just make sure you clean them extra good when you get them. The brew system is decent, a few things I would like different but nothing major. Their pumps and false bottom suck though.
