Glass Fused to Steel Bolted Tanks



A cone bottom tank is used in processes where complete drainage is essential. This includes storage of heavy liquids and sludges that are difficult to drain. They are also used to separate and decant solids from liquid fractions. Cone bottom storage tanks are usually used to store water, liquid fertilizer, liquid feed, salt brine and other liquids and chemicals. The conical bottoms in a cone bottom tank ensure complete drainage making them the perfect solution for getting every last drop out of the tank. The angle of the cone’s slope depends on the application. Climate LLC offers a variety of different liquid and solids storage tank shapes to suit every possible storage situation. If you are looking for a new tank for your application, we will design, fabricate and deliver the best tank to achieve your process goals. If you need help selecting a tank, ask us about it! We will put all our experience, technical skills, and knowledge at your disposal to ensure that you choose the most suitable and cost-effective option.



  • A sloped base enables complete drainage.
  • Easy to bottom-fill.
  • Can tap off sediment without draining liquid fraction.
  • No low spots where sediment can accumulate.
  • Especially suited to high solids content slurries.


  • Require special stands and more headroom.
  • More difficult to move.
  • Must be installed on concrete.
  • Top heavy therefore requires more seismic bracing.
  • Geometry promotes fluid ‘stall’ leading to stratification, temperature gradients, and radial flow.
  • If used for mixing, it requires the use of a longer, more expensive impeller shaft.
  • Not suited to suspension of solids, especially in concentrations above 5%.
