Stainless Steel Storage Tank Fabrication Services - Hygiene - Hygienic Food & Beverage


Bendel Tank & Heat Exchanger recently shipped a pair of custom fabricated stainless steel storage tanks to a Minnesota-based food & beverage industry customer.

Storage tanks utilized for the storage and transportation of food and beverage products are typically made of stainless steel, chosen for its durability, corrosion resistance—and its ease of cleaning.

Stainless steel tank manufacturing requires specialized knowledge and skills to ensure the final product is of the highest quality and meets the strict hygiene and safety standards required for food and beverage handling.

Bendel has the expertise to design and manufacture custom above-ground vertical and horizontal stainless steel storage tanks to meet your all your process and industrial manufacturing needs.

Our Stainless Steel Manufacturing Process

Our storage tank fabrication process starts with the design and specifications of the tank, which are typically provided by our customers. Our own in-house engineers often work with our customers to achieve optimal designs.

Following the design and engineering stage, stainless steel is cut to size and shaped using specialized equipment, including water jets, lasers, or plasma cutters.

Tank components are then welded together by our expert team of AWS-certified welders, utilizing specialized welding techniques which can include TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding or MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welding. Once welding is complete, the tank is polished and cleaned to remove any surface impurities or contaminants.

The last step is the installation of any required components such as valves, gauges, and other fittings which are attached to the tank using specialized welding and/or bolting techniques.
