So far I haven't heard any negative feedback from tm owners soon the m ytee tank.......

From my experience I woudnt suggest aluminum......

Stainless steel wud be the only other option for me.....
But wud be a pain to drill an apo......
Which is what I am trying to do
I drilled out my stainless steel tank. Trick is to go slow/slow speed. Fast will burn up the bit quick

How you route/force the air through the tank can have a bigger effect than the shape. Squares and rectangles can be forced to act like a circular tank with some persuasion. Moisture ingestion happens at full occlusion with every shape tank TM or portable, minimizing it at operating levels takes careful study. My CDS tank for example was the worst design for airpath and moisture ingestion box stock.

Hexagon and even octagon tanks mimic round only with flat panels. Flats are a weak element in design. The closer you get to round the stronger. Most manufacturers have been able to keep water, debris and foam out of their vac motors regardless of the shape of the tank. The Mytee TM tank with its ribbed, round design is pound for pound the strongest vacuum tank in the industry.
hahahahaha strong tank THIS IS A STRONG TANK stainless the lid is not stainless

Thats true all the vacuum tanks at the GM plant were round . Shit vacuum tanks under the hood of my truck are round.
However apparently square tanks work well in this industry .

Jim, when you can watch what happens inside the tank under use there is a lot less debate on what works.... But shapes based on the economy of scale rule the world of production.

they don't work well they break they leak over time every time you use a square tank it is trying to destroy itself

Yes it is. If I’m not mistaking it resembles very much an “egg”. You’re were ahead of your time and one of the most knowledgeable guys in this industry. You inspire the rest of us.

I can actually view what’s happening in my waste tank and it’s all good .
Understand square can be less costly for production. Will take up less room in a square van.

Most all gasoline tm manufacturers design their tanks rectangular using a baffle system for strength and to decrease venturi.
Check, even an unprofessional 3/4 inch plywood box has a lot of strength, although it would have other problems along with a bad image.
Jim morrow is right!

Yup.

As stated, the issue is the potential for foaming, so vacuum tanks from any other industry are not really relevant comparisons.

Look at the action inside round canister vacuums.....round and round it goes.

Put some soapy liquid inside and see what happens.

I've been using round waste tanks without baffles or bracing with my TM's for the last 16 years and never have had foam problems or foam getting into the blower. My experience has been more vacuum without restriction using round waste tanks. I'm going on 9 years with the current stainless one and it still looks brand new inside. I've used aluminum in the 90's and will never use it again. Look like someone sand blasted it where the dirty water entered the waste tank in the first 2 years. Was pitted bad

Directing effluent downwards while maintaining airflow upwards trump's shape as argued by manufacturers above. They can keep special shapes, I'd rather keep dry vac inlets. Less is more.
This manufacturer did not argue shape regarding foam. I said shape had nothing to do with foam. I said round or egg shaped is the strongest shape to withstand vacuum stress. :):):)
