Item currently out of stock

MoreWine! is proud to offer our small Variable Volume Tanks from Speidel - a German manufacturer of premium quality stainless steel tanks for the wine industry. The tank body is fabricated from 304-type stainless steel, while the floating lid is made from 316-type stainless and has an inflatable bladder that pumps up to seal the wine off at any volume level. They can be used for primary fermentation as well as aging.

Built in Germany by Speidel, the world-class traditions of German engineering and craftsmanship are reflected in these tanks. And, after examining tanks built by every major manufacturer worldwide, we can safely say that when it comes to features, quality and price, these tanks represent the very best value available in stainless steel wine storage.

These tanks arrive to you complete and ready to go out of the box after a little assembly. The tanks are fitted with 1/2 inch threaded ports to accomodate the included 1/2 inch stainless steel ball valve and 1/2 inch stainless plug. The plugged port is intended for use with an optional thermometer (MT514).

Key Features:

Rubber Lid Gaskets - After extensive testing, we've decided to no longer sell tanks with the traditional clear vinyl gaskets. Rubber gaskets are much thicker than the traditional clear vinyl gaskets, which along with their extruded manufacturing process provide a much better seal with the tank's wall. That means better protection for your wines!

Weld Quality - Speidel's robotic-arm laser welders create flawless stainless to stainless junctions that look and feel more like a taped fabric seam than a traditional weld. Ultra high-quality welds leave no chance for residual product to harbor spoilage organisms.

Interior Finish - Speidel tanks feature an ultra-smooth 2R rated interior surface which effectively resists the build-up of tartarate residues. Clean your tanks with cold water after cold stabilization! Say goodbye to harsh cleaning chemicals and expensive CIP systems!

Warranty - Speidel-Behaelter, GmbH backs up each and every tank with an industry-leading 25 year warranty against defects in materials or workmanship. And, as a 5th generation manufacturer, you can be confident they'll be around to honor that warranty should the need arise.

Lids loose seal.
Just filled the tanks this past December. I’ve had a hard time keeping the seals inflated for more than 2 weeks. I’ve changed gaskets and still they slowly. Leak out. I’m a little concerned to be gone over 3 weeks so the wine is exposed to air. I’m glad to send pictures if you need them.

Sturdy and well built
Having used this tank vs. another brand, this is my favorite hands down. Sturdy and the tank holds a seal for several months.

Great Batching Vat. Love the lid!!
This made the processing quite a bit easier in our production facility. We love the configuration of the lid which makes removal a snap. Great product!!

Great tank!
I love these tanks - large enough for the small commercial winery to crank out some product volume yet small enough so that I can actually pick the tank up myself to clean (when empty). The price point per gallon capacity also is the most attractive for Speidel tanks. I bought five last year and will be purchasing one more this year.
