In this application customers contract Kendo to manufacture custom material handling equipment o replace a worn out parts and/or to create new processes within their manufacturing facilities. These tanks are used to hold the colored sands that cover the top of asphalt shingles and will be used in home roofing applications .

Carbon steel was rolled into a cylinder and a cone and welded together using a continuous fillet mig weld process for ultimate strength and long wear. The legs were then fabricated and mount feet welded into place. With Kendo’s ability to reverse engineer existing in-place equipment and large scale one-of-a-kind manufacturing operations we were able to get our customer back into operation fast when his existing equipment was worn out. This tank as shown is headed to paint and then to the customers local factory.

The finished dimensions were an impressive 8 feet in diameter and 16 feet tall! Q & A inspection included weld testing and structural integrity. Kendo is a reliable source for high quality replacement parts, rebuilds, and custom fabrication.
