The dairy company Mertens in Germany owns two new stainless steel tanks with self-supporting stainless steel roofs. The industrial tank with about 800 m³ capacity is equipped with a wall bushing, 8 inches suction and filling port as well as fixed stairs. The self-supporting stainless steel roof has an incline of 10°. The roof is composed of an inner and outer ring. The outer ring equalises the diameter of the tank (11 m), whereas, the inner ring has a diameter of 1 m. The outer ring is fixed on top of the tank and lies lower than the inner ring. Thus, the roof gets the inclined shape. Between the rings, Z-profiles are the basis for the roof and support the stainless steel shells which are slotted and bolted. The roof has an inspection hole.
The second stainless steel tank with a diameter of 3 m is used as a buffer tank. It is furnished with the same components and the stainless steel roof.
