Choose the cream of the crop
for your dairy process vessels.

GVTEC's cream tanks, yoghurt tanks and mixing tanks have become the steadfast standard in the dairy industry.

Custom built to proven engineering designs, typically with a capacity of 1 000 ℓ to 15 000 ℓ, but practically any size can be fabricated to suit your requirements and available space.

Specialised stainless steel tanks for the quality conscious dairy producer.

GVTEC's dairy process tanks and dairy storage tanks are fully insulated with seal-welded hygienic stainless steel cladding. Low-chlorine mineral wool is used as insulation.

The cooling jackets are applied through a fully automated process of resistance welding, so human error is reduced. The welds are pinpoint precise, allowing larger areas around each weld, for greater through-flow of coolant. The result is quicker, more efficient cooling, which reduces electricity and coolant use.

Unique easy-clean mirror-finish stainless steel tank interior.

A unique feature - not currently offered by other local manufacturers - is GVTEC's optional mirror-polished interior, which greatly enhances hygiene and ease of cleaning in place (CIP).

High-spec features for top quality dairy production.
