Harmony Metal Fabrication is a certified specialist when it comes to custom fabrication for advanced projects. A customer aware of our capabilities contracted us to build a chocolate storage tank in the project discussed here. We were able to provide a complete solution without compromise to quality or performance.

The design of this storage tank was provided by the customer, measuring 16’ long, 8’ wide, and 10’ high. The metal was specified, with thickness ranging from 1/8” to ¾”, and tolerances of ±1/8".

Our fabrication of this 12,000 lb. carbon steel storage and agitation tank required use of many differing processes. These included burning, shearing, plasma cutting, sawing, sheet forming, rolling, drilling, welding, and punching, followed by assembly and enamel painting. After assembly, we operationally tested the completed tank and inspected it for any fluid leaks.

The chocolate industry customer received a completed agitation and storage tank in only 10 weeks.
