Bottoms

We offer three styles of bottoms, each with its own advantage for various processing applications.
  • Pitched offers excellent drainage for liquids and places the outlet on a horizontal axis.
  • Dished offers center draining for more viscous products. Reverse dished bottoms are also available.
  • Cone is ideal for viscous or semi-solid materials. The standard cone bottom angle is 120º, but can be varied to suit process or product requirements.

Outlets

All outlet pipes are stainless steel, with one of the following options:
  • I.P.S
  • Sanitary Acme thread
  • ASA flange

Lee manufactures diaphragm and flush ball outlet valves which are ideal tank outlets.
