There are eighteen 100L tanks, forty-eight 380L tanks, nine 700L tanks and three 1400L tanks. 

A flexible design allows tank configurations, flow rates, and temperature regimes to be tailored to meet specific needs.  Any number of combination of tanks can be rented at any time depending on availability.  Tanks are reserved on a first come first serve basis.
