2 Tanks to choose from, with heater or without
18ga Stainless Steel
Stainless Steel Ball Valve (Included)
See IMPORTANT INFO below
85 Gallon (680 lbs) Stainless Steel LYE Tank
These are 2 different Tanks
1. 85 Gallon Lye Storage Tank with Ball Valve
(Heater Box/Thermostat/Element cannot be added later)
2. 85 Gallon Lye Storage Tank with Ball Valve/Heater Box/Thermostat/Incoloy 800 Element
Why 2 Different Tanks and What's the Difference...
Numerous customers either commented or complained about the heating element and tube for the thermostat being right in the tank.
This made it difficult to stir their solution without banging against these fixtures and possibly damaging them.
For customers that need to re-heat their solution (Large Quantity), they need the heater system and have learned to use caution when stirring.
For other customers, they use all or most of their solution at once and preferred a Lye Storage Tank (And possibly use the tanks for mixing other things).
We listened to both views and decided the best way to solve this dilemma was to have 2 different tanks.
Basically, the difference is that 1 Tank has only an outlet for the ball valve to dispense the solution and the other tank has the complete heating system and ball valve outlet.
Best way to mix and store your Lye/Water solution. It's there when you need it.
Store your mixed solution for a month or more with no loss of strength
The heating element is right in the solution.
