Features a 2.25" Brass Thread in the side, which is positioned to accept a 14" Immersion Heater, this port is blanked off by solid moulding, until such time that it is required, then the center can be drilled out with a hole saw enabling the element to be fitted and scrwwed into the thread. It also has a 1"BSP Female threaded bottom outlet, and screwed cap of 4" Internal Diameter, which can be made air-tight for protection against fumes by means of cutting a rubber gasket. The tank is also available without the 2.25" Threaded Insert.
If you need to breach the side of the tank to fit additional process equipment then you will also find Brass Cylinder Flanges, Steel Bulkhead Connectors, and Polypropylene Flanged Connections with Backnut useful
