Tank Fab is the best supplier of industrial autoclaves because:
Working with a company that has extensive industry experience is valuable.
It’s the best way to bolster your success.
Tank Fab has been in business since 1995 – and our founder began manufacturing industrial autoclaves back in 1976 – and is still going strong, providing specialized autoclave equipment that helps customers be more productive and reduce their operating costs.
We understand that you need the right information – and you need it right away – because you need to focus on your expertise, your business.
Here’s the story of our beginning, a look at where we are now and how we can help your business thrive with industrial autoclaves.
The President of our company, Thomas E. Lippincott, has been in this business for many years.
He founded a company known as WOODTEC in 1976. His company prospered and Tom remained the President, Engineering Manager, and Owner of WOODTEC until 1990.
In 1990, he made the decision to sell WOODTEC; however, he remained with the company as Vice President and Engineering Manager until 1995.
During his time with WOODTEC, the company designed, fabricated, and installed close to 200 wood-treating plants in the United States.
Tom took charge and oversaw the design for these plants. He personally started up each of the successful treating plants.
In 1995, Tom made the tough decision to leave WOODTEC so that he could begin another company: Tank Fab Inc.
Tank Fab’s core business is turnkey industrial autoclaves.
As WOODTEC, Tom’s company sold these systems exclusively to the wood-treating industry.
Upon forming Tank Fab, one of Tom’s visions was to diversify by implementing his autoclave into other industries.
Today, our systems are used in the wood-treating, rubber, and concrete industries.
Tank Fab is just one of the manufacturers that can fabricate an autoclave that suits your needs, but what about the other equipment that you’ll need once your autoclave is designed and delivered?
At Tank Fab you will find that we are a one-stop-shop when it comes to obtaining and operating industrial autoclaves.
We design and manufacture attached piping, valves, pumps, as well as the automation and instrumentation that will run the process you need the autoclave to conduct.
We also have experts who will come to your place of business and repair any existing autoclave, making us a true, full-service provider.
Our automation system, known as the “E.A.S.Y. Treat ®” system, is a PLC/PC-based system running on SCADA software.
Each industrial autoclave is customized to meet our customer’s individual needs.
EASY Treat is our system that automates the process used to create your product. It has been used to preserve wood products – such as the wood you buy at Lowes or Home Depot for your DIY projects – cure the rubber hose used on your vehicle’s motor, and manufacture the wax-type coating that is used on your McDonalds french fries holder.
Our company built this automation system to streamline your manufacturing process by producing a more consistent product, while minimizing the amount of chemical preservative needed to do so.
Tank Fab’s primary focus is to help customers increase production and reduce costs through the use of industrial autoclaves and other specialized equipment.
Tom has been in this business for many years and he knows what it takes to help you increase production.
Don’t trust the success of your business to just anyone.
You need an expert who has seen it all and will put your business first.
