Fratella Marchisio 100 Liter Tank Pictures?
Posted 28 October 2009 - 10:30 AM
I just purchased a Fratella Marchisio 100 liter tank. I am trying to set it up properly and I am looking for photos of assembled tanks as the instructions are a bit vague. I could not find anything online. Does anyone have this tank that could post or send photos of the correct assembly and set up.

To inflate, open the pump slightly by unscrewing the knob on the side and begin pumping the pump. If you can not pump, open the knob more until you can inflate the bladder. Once the bladder is inflated close the knob. To uninflate the bladder, open it all the way. Do not inflate too much while the lid is not in the tank. Now you're ready. Float the top on your wine and inflate. Resist the temptation to over inflate. Just snug it up.
FWIW. Cut the top off the calpens lock leaving as much of a tube as you can and inset a bung in the tube. This allows for volume changes in the tank due to temperature and pressure changes. It also allows for either a solid or drilled bung with air lock to be used - depending where you are in the process. I like the ability to draw samples or stir the lees without taking the top totally off. Recently I saw where someone created a similiar tube with PVC.
