Air TanksWhat We Do

How We Do It

Hoosier Tank was featured in an episode of “How it’s Made” – which airs on the Discovery Channel and Science Channel – in June, 2012. Check out this clip for a behind-the-scenes look at our process.

Our Manufacturing Capabilities

At Hoosier Tank, all air tanks are made to SAE J10 and FMVSS 121 specifications. Available diameter dimensions include tanks at 4”, 6”, 7”, 8”, 9.5”, 10”, 12”, 13”, 14”, 16”, 20”, and 24”.

Our stamping capabilities are the result of operating variable speed presses with servo feed equipment. For example:

  • 300 Ton with 72” x 48” bed
  • 250 Ton with 60” x 48” bed
  • 150 Ton with 60” x 36” bed

To ensure air tank durability, our in house powder coating process includes three stages of pretreatment for 500 hours salt spray resistance.

Such capabilities, along with an inventory of over 800 active part numbers, allow us to meet an array of custom design requirements.
