How it works

Construction

The LKTC tank feet and Sphere Shaped tank feet consist of a cylindrical stainless steel piece that is welded onto the tank. The cylindrical piece houses an internal thread that fits onto and engages an adjustable cylinder-shaped spindle. 

To adjust the tank feet to the optimal height, simply shorten or lengthen the spindle.

LKTC tank feet are designed to stand either directly on an even floor or on a stainless steel base plate where floor surfaces are uneven.

Sphere shaped tank feet can only stand on a steel base plate.
