6ltr Aluminium air tank

If your after a quality Air tank then these are for you.

During the manufacturing process not only are the end caps stamped, robot weld the seams, the die has been manufactured to extrude the cylinder section reducing the need for a seam down the length. 

Once the end fixtures are welded in, the caps are installed on the center section and jig welded, once the welding process is finished the tanks are shot balsted. Followed by heat treating the Aluminum to T6 grade. The tanks then go off to the Anodizing plant for coating.

This process ensures the tanks are produced to a consistent air tank which not only has a beautiful finish but is able to withstand pressures exceeding 480psi.
