Style C, T-Shaped Reservoirs

View Larger

The Style C, T-Shaped Series provides users with a vertical reservoir straddled by platforms for mounting system components. The reservoir cover is hinged for convenient access to the inside of the reservoir. The reservoir and platforms are fully supported by and welded to a skid allowing for most system assemblies to be completed remotely and then transported to another location for drop in installation.

Standard Features:

  • Reservoir capacities ranging from 10 to 400 gallons
  • Channel gasket installed
  • Reservoir covers are secured with multiple T-handle latches. On reservoirs larger than 60 gallons the cover is supported by chain when opened.
  • Reservoir bottom is flat
  • (1) 3/4 inch NPT drain (plugged)
  • Platform base plate thicknesses range from 7 Ga to .50 inch
  • 3 inch wide kick plate on each end of skid
  • Exterior painted with a LDI gray primer
  • Interior coated with rust preventative oil

  • 10 inch back mount G1620 Series sight gage (300 gallon and above)
  • Card thermometer integral to sight gage, dual scale 0° to 220°F and -20° to 110°C graduations
  • 5201 filler breather

Sight gage, filler breather and T-handles provided loose with shipment

Standard Materials:

  • Carbon steel reservoir
  • Buna N seals
  • Aluminum sight gage
  • Zinc plated fill cap with nylon strainer basket


  • Reservoirs are not designed for internal positive or negative pressure applications. For these applications, consult the factory.

Temperature Rating

  • Industry accepted design practice for hydraulic systems limits maximum operating temperature to 180° F (82° C), but materials used for fabrication of the reservoirs are capable of operating between -40° and 250° F (-40° and 121° C).
