The “empty” weight of the recovery tank refers to the weight when no solvent is present. The empty weight of the tank is very important, as it is needed to determine how full it is with solvent. The only way to measure the amount of solvent in your recovery tank is by comparing the filled weight with the empty weight.
ALWAYS WEIGH YOUR TANK BEFORE FILLING IT! As we continue to develop more options for the tanks, weight may vary slightly from unit to unit depending on customization. The following weights are only approximate and should not be used as a point of reference.
The traditional 1 lb BHOgart extraction system recovery tank weights approximately 9.5 lbs empty.
The 2 lb and 5 lb systems both use the same tank. The traditional version of this tank weighs approximately 29 lbs when empty, however in 2015 we switched our recovery tanks to a larger and more appropriate size.
The Standard 2 lb recovery tank weighs approximately 31 lbs when empty.
The Standard 5 lb recovery tank weighs roughly 37 lbs when empty.
The empty weight of the extra large recovery tank for the 8-10 lb Chopper Stopper is approximately 55 lbs.
