Industrial Wash and Rinse Tanks, Chicago, Ill.

Sheet Metal Contractor: Tal-Mar Custom Metal Fab. Inc., Crestwood. Ill.

The crew at Tal-Mar Custom Metal fabricated industrial wash and rinse tanks to this client’s stringent specs and even offered design improvements for future projects. In addition, Tal-Mar brought the fast-paced project in under the customer’s firm $100,000 budget.

Used to remove impurities from steel coil, the 30-foot long and 20-foot long tanks were each fabricated from Type 304 stainless steel. The expertly welded construction guarantees each tank is watertight. The exterior frame was created using hot-rolled mild steel.

“We completed the project in four weeks,” explained Bill Babcock, project manager. “During fabrication we modified the client’s design to strengthen the piping on the exterior of the wash tank. By adding a stiffener bar behind the piping connection, the segments will remain perpendicular to the pipe below.”
