Tank Jacket Info:

Your Tank Jacket can be filled with Water, Mineral Oil or Propylene Glycol (PPG).

  • PPG and Mineral oil heats slower than water but has better heat retention, evaporation is less of an issue, it allows for higher temperatures, and less maintenance is required.  NOTE: Always be sure to use food grade quality with inhibitor when using PPG.
  • Water is the better option when you want to cool down your products in the tank, easy to flush for faster cooling with our “Faucet for Water Jacket”.
