Horizontal Storage Tank

When inside storage space is limited in height, Paul Mueller Company horizontal tanks might work best for your operation. We apply the same quality and efficiency standards to our Model "SH" tanks as we do our vertical variety. These cylindrical, horizontal storage containers are well-suited for bulkhead installation, as all product connections are located on the front head. Mueller horizontal tanks are built to a 3-A Sanitary Standard 01 and can be equipped to meet your exact specifications for liquid product storage needs.
