The tank is completely made of stainless steel and has a conical outlet which is closed by a slide. Above the slide there is a screen insert with a water drain behind it. A water inlet socket is mounted in the upper part of the tank. By means of a water pump, constant circulation of the soaking water can be ensured. At the same time it is possible to heat the water using a heat exchanger. As a result, the soaking time can often be shortened significantly.
Various additional equipment supports filling and emptying, cleaning, and process monitoring.
