Tank Heads

Walker Engineered Products is a prominent manufacturer of hydroformed tank heads.

We utilize various metals to fabricate both standard and custom tank heads and other formed metal used in manufacturing in a wide range of sizes, gauges, types and shapes to meet exacting customer tolerances.  Walker tank heads are formed stress-free, then machined, beveled and polished so they are ready to be moved directly into a customer fabrication facility.  Walker has regulatory agency approvals from ASME, CRN, and PED.

Tank heads are formed metal shapes of various sizes and thicknesses that are used in a variety of manufacturing industries for additional processing into everything from silo tank heads to ornamental designs.  Walker Engineered Products makes one of the highest quality tank heads on the market because we are the experts at hydroforming, also referred to as pneumatic pressure forming.  Pressurized air forces a defined geometric shape into a piece of metal evenly and uniformly across the head so that there are no residual stress points.

 

Capabilities & Benefits

After hydroforming, the Walker tank heads are machined, beveled and polished for a finished profile.   Since there are no residual stress points, the heads can then be routed directly into the fabrication facility for further processing.  Customers save on the extra machining costs and benefit by keeping lower inventory on hand. The Walker hydroforming process keeps tooling costs down, easily accommodates different shapes and is flexible for fast turnaround.

 

Materials

Walker Engineered Products produces tank heads from stainless steel, carbon and alloy steel, and aluminum.  If you require another metal please contact us to discuss specific needs.

 

Sizes and Thickness

Walker has a series of dies to form a standard range of head dimensions and profilesWe can work with any number of diameter sizes - from 9” up to 180” - and metal thicknesses – 18 gauge to ½” plate -, depending on the head shape.   Please contact us to discuss custom configurations.
