An elevated water tank of this nature is normally placed next to a steel coke quench tower to douse burning coke with a measured amount of water. It is usually designed to be 'bolted' to the concrete structure. This particular tower is designed as a standalone structure so it can be used in a variety of situations such a quench/fire tower for a grain silo as pictured above or as a water/liquid reservoir for a factory building. The footprint for this tower is 4 in x 4 in x 10 ½ in (h). The standard color is dark gray however other options are light gray, white and black. See our OnLine Store for more pictures and pricing.
The normal design incorporates a black tank and a dark gray superstructure without decals or it can be ordered with one of several railroad/industrial names. The water tower footprint is approximately 5 inches by 5 inches. It is about 8 inches tall from the base to the platform. The tank is 4 inches tall with an elliptical top and fat bottom. Total height is roughly 12 inches. If you desire a different color tank or superstructure please contact us by phone or email.
