Product Details:

Eight Dexter 80 Gallon FLEXTANKS and accessories for sale. Four tanks are standard weight (DM80.2) for red wine making and four tanks are heavyweight (DH80.2) for white winemaking. Tanks are 24” in diameter, 46” tall. Standard weight tanks are 40 lbs each and heavyweight tanks are 62 lbs each. They feature the wide mouth opening for easy cleaning. Trust me this is way better than the Eco tank opening when it comes to cleaning the tanks. The lids provide an o-ring and adjustable clamp seal to lock the air out. The tanks feature a small sampling port with plug and larger stainless-steel covered racking or pumping port.

These tanks are barrel replacement tanks. They provide the same micro-oxygenation as a wood barrel without the hassle of the special care needed to maintain barrels and without the short lifespan of a wood barrel. The tanks are sized to accommodate an average yield from 1/2 ton of grapes. They can be used as both a primary fermentation vessel or a storage and aging vessel. Included with the tanks are two 48x48 pallets with center contoured stabilizing lug for easy storage and transport. Also included are a whole lot of additional accessories including a 6-pack of floating skins (S23-6) to seal the wine away from air, six (FL2) pressure relief style Fermentation Locks that do not require water for sealing and are easy to clean and keep clean. Two stainless steel racking port kits and accessories. Right now the tanks alone sell for $4200 but add in the $1000 of accessories and you are getting a great deal. Also, Flextank does not sell the float skins as their supplier has gone out of business and they haven't been able to find a suitable replacement. The skins alone were $500.

The pictures show them when we had them in use. They are obviously empty now and ready for pickup or shipment. We can deliver them free in a 100 mile radius of Old Forge, PA or you can pick them up or we can help you arrange shipment if you would prefer or need to have them shipped. Get ready for the Spring.

The tanks were used for one wine making season. Original cost for everything was 5351.00. This is a perfect setup for a small winery operation or a large operation in need of overflow tanks. Everything is in excellent condition. Take it all for 4000.00 OBO. That is over 1200 off the original and current price. Pickup in Old Forge, PA. Less
