How Anti-Vortex Fittings Improve Liquid Transfer on Cone Bottom and Leg Tank Trailers

Updated: Dec 18, 2023

What is Anti-Vortex?

A liquid vortex is swirling or a circular movement of the liquid. These vortexes are common in cone bottom tanks and fully drainable leg tanks. Vortexes occur when draining or transferring liquid from these tanks and it causes unstable movement of the liquid. This unstable movement allows for air to get in your lines and takes longer to drain or transfer liquids. Anti-vortex simply stops that unwanted movement of the liquid.

Benefits of an Anti-Vortex Fitting

By implementing a simple stainless steel anti-vortex fitting in your liquid tank you allow for faster and better flow of product. This will make loading times more efficient and reduce or even eliminate the possibility of air in your lines. This is a simple yet effective tool to utilize on any cone bottom or fully drainable leg tank trailer.
