Behälter KG offers a large selection of immediately available horizontal storage tanks. Horizontal stainless-steel tanks are particularly useful when limited ceiling height is available. From small horizontal buffer tanks to large storage tanks, we cover all sizes - sorted below in ascending order by volume.
The following design types are most common for horizontal tanks & vessels:
Horizontal tanks on leg support: at least 4 solid legs carry the weight of the tank
Horizontal tanks on saddle support: at least 2 semicircular saddles carry the weight of the tank, the saddles are typically loose but fixed to the tank due to the weight load
Horizontal underground storage tanks: tank without supports is positioned underground (e.g. for extinguishing water, rainwater storage or as buffer tank)
Double-wall storage tanks with safety jacket: Compliant with German law (WHG), a double wall surrounds the entire tank, which is filled with control liquid (e.g. used to store hazardous goods such as petrol or fertilizer)

Which benefits offer second-hand horizontal tanks?
Our wide range of high-quality used horizontal stainless-steel tanks are instantly available from stock, compared to long delivery times of custom-made tanks. Furthermore, a used horizontal tank can be purchased at a price much lower than a comparable new stainless steel tank.
Especially in case of more complex horizontal tanks, with insulation jacket, agitator or a higher quality alloy, the search for a second-hand horizontal tank pays off, due to an often significant price difference compared to a brand-new tank. Since our used tanks come almost exclusively from production sites in the German-speaking countries and were manufactured by well-known German manufacturers, excellent material processing and manufacturing quality is guaranteed.
