Tank Jacket Tips:

You can fill your Tank Jacket with Water, Mineral Oil or Propylene Glycol (PPG).

  • PPG and Mineral oil heat slower than water, yet you get better heat retention, evaporation is less of an issue, it allows for higher temperatures, and less maintenance is required.
  • NOTE: When using PPG, always use food grade quality that contains a corrosion inhibitor.
  • When you want the option to cool your products down quickly in the tank, water is the best choice for filling your tank jacket.
