High Viscosity Containers

300 Gallon Stainless Steel Low-Pressure Piston Bin for high viscosity products from 1,000,000 to 3,000,000 centipoise

The stainless piston bin is similar to the River City bin that has been used for over ten years with heavy and thick silicone adhesives. It is a proven design that effectively self-cleans the bin so that it does not have to be opened or cleaned. The lid can be opened, if necessary, for maintenance or inspection, by simply removing the clamp ring. The bin uses up to 12 psi to push very thick materials such as silicone caulk into a pump. This updated version uses our polyethylene piston in the stainless tank to reduce cost and save on weight. It fits side by side in standard 20′ and 40′ ISO shipping containers. Our unique volume measurement system uses powerful magnets attached to the top of the piston to attract and hold a small orange magnet that floats in a clear plastic tube outside the tank. The small orange magnet follows the piston up and down showing the amount of material left in the bin.
