Why Cone Bottom Tanks are Perfect for your Business

Cone bottom tanks provide the ultimate solution for applications that require complete drainage and are a necessity for efficient processing of some liquids. Using a cone bottom tank for some applications can save money and time when compared to a flat bottom tank.​

    • Fully drainable storage tank due to unique cone base
    • Assists in removing bacteria growth – no build up inside the tank
    • Resistant to most chemicals, oils and acids
    • Weather and UV resistant – 25 Year Design Life
    • Easy access for cleaning and dispensing
    • Certified to food-grade standards


Polymaster’s cone bottom tanks provide a unique solution as they have a steep 50o cone. This cone angle ensures maximum performance, with even the most viscous liquids not building up inside the tank. The angle of the cone has also been tested and proved as most effective for solids settling and solids separation applications.


  • Storing & dispensing wet or dry ingredients
  • Processing thick liquids
  • Sludge clarification & solids separation

Constructed using premium tank grade PE material, these tanks sit inside an engineered heavy-duty DuraGal frame for maximum support and longevity. Frames can be modified in material type and design to suit any application.


Included is a hinged lid for easy access, a self-supporting roof with no internal fixtures or supports, and fork channels to safely and efficiently move the tank around your site. Also, tanks can be modified with any number of welded fittings and pipework.
