    Default Stainless Honey Tanks on Ebay

    Was wondering if anyone here has purchased one of these tanks. Looks like they have many different sizes. I like the idea of locking the top down. I personally do not know the brand or where they are made. If you have one? How is the quality and would you reccomend buying one? Thanks for any comments.

    I bought one from propolisis on ebay 3 years ago, holds 100 lbs . The brand is OBS short for Orient Bee Supply, they are imported from China? The quality is good , just don't get in a bidding war and it can be a great deal. Dan

    In early December, a couple of them went for $60-80. Now they're always fetching over a $100. I'd like to snag one, but I'm fixated on the lower price point.

    If you buy two you can extract in the dark.

    While a number of posts above are having a little fun, there really is the possibility of radioactive stainless steel in products from China. To wit:

    Between January and February 2008, the Carabinieri of Environmental Care Command – Radioactive Materials Pollution Unit, supported by APAT (Italian Environmental Protection Agency) and other Competent Authorities, seized 3 hot rolled stainless steel sheets in coils contaminated by cobalt 60. Each coil weighs about 10 tons and is made of sheets 6 mm thick (see figure below). Probably they are part of a single casting. Fortunately, they were destined for industrial applications (like tanks, chimneys, pulleys) not for domestic use.

    ...

    The dose-rate at contact was about 20 mSv/h (52 mSv/h inside the coils) and 4 mSv/h at one meter.

    In steel factories, cobalt sources are used in the blast furnace to check the thickness of the walls. If the maintenance works are not adequate, the sources can fall in contaminating all the melt.

    Has anyone else bought one of these tanks? The price is sure good if they are decent quality. There are a couple different people selling them.......from Michigan and Wisconsin.

    I am not so sure Mann Lake can't beat those prices and you have a known provider who will stand behind products

    Vance, I don't see any stainless bottling tanks that are reasonably priced in the Mann Lake catalog. Mann Lakes are heated and start at $1,195.00. Did you see something else in the catalog?

    Why support Chinese products?
    At least look into Dadants single walled tanks

    Maxant, thanks for the tip on the Dadant tanks! I have never purchased from them, so I didn't even think to look there.

    I try to buy state side when possible. But I have a hard time doing that when it cost more than twice the money for the same quality. I paid less than $160 for two 100lbs cap. tanks with handles on tank, covers that latch down to the tank and nylon gates. As compared to Dadant M00393 175lbs tank with out handles and cover for $219.00 plus tax, cover M00502 47.75 plus tax. That is $266.75 for one tank and cover plus tax and shipping. As to for made in america, the tank is produced in the US, but what is country of origen for the Stainless Steal sheet stock that they made the tank out of? I do not see them making claim as to that so it is possable it comes from another country other than USA. Dan
