Commercial Heated Soak Tanks

Commercial kitchens are notoriously hard on their equipment. Pots, pans, hood filters, and other implements can become greasy or have carbon buildup that can affect their performance and shorten their lifespan.

Ordinarily, this can be prevented only by labor-intensive washing and scrubbing. However, there is a solution that can make cleaning these items much easier. The FOG Tank® is a revolutionary piece of commercial kitchen cleaning equipment that dramatically cuts down on the amount of time required to clean these items. These heated commercial soak tanks clean your metal, stainless steel, and aluminum implements with little effort.

How Fog Tank® Works

This commercial kitchen cleaning equipment makes washing metal items as simple as dropping items into the tank and leaving them to soak. After scraping away any food residue, just add your dirty items into the tank. When added to the water, our proprietary non-caustic, non-toxic, and eco-friendly Tiger Carbon Remover Powder® transforms the FOG Tank into one of the most powerful pieces of commercial warewashing equipment available.

When the cycle is complete, all you need to do is rinse away any carbon fragments that may be left behind. Whatever metal implements you put into the tank will emerge completely clean and sanitized, no scrubbing required.

We offer these commercial soak tanks and commercial warewashing equipment in a variety of sizes to meet your needs, whether you purchase or rent them. The special chemical solution and water is good for 30 days before it requires refreshing, making this a sustainable choice.

The FOG Tank cleans:

  • Pots
  • Pans
  • Vent hood filters
  • Metal kitchen equipment
  • Cutting boards
  • Pizza pans
  • Sheet trays
  • Muffin tins and more!

Saving You Time and Money

There are a number of ways in which using the FOG Tank can save your business a considerable amount of time and money. These include:

  • Water: You’ll save thousands of gallons of water compared to a traditional three-compartment sink or dish machine because the FOG Tank only needs to be refilled every 30 days.
  • Chemicals: The non-toxic and fully biodegradable powder used in this process only needs to be added to the tank once a month, as opposed to other cleansers that only work for one use at a time.
  • Labor: Because there is no scrubbing needed, the FOG Tank saves your kitchen staff a significant amount of time.
  • Electricity: This stainless-steel tank is fully insulated, which enables it to maintain its working temperature of 185 degrees Fahrenheit without using additional power.
