Tank & Apparatus Building

Devices exist since the dawn of mankind, for our inventive spirit knows no limits.

Guess what this crazy-looking machine can be used for:

With this fine piece of machinery, you can roll cigarettes. Makes sense, doesn’t it?

Big? Sure.

Slightly out of proportion? Certainly.

But did it what it was supposed to do? 100%.

Thanks to his invention in 1880, its inventor James Albert Bonsack multiplied production capacity of cigarette manufacturers by 50 times (!) from one second to the next.

Where plenty of workers had to previously roll 4 cigarettes per minute, by hand, now cigarettes almost shot out of this device, at a rate of 200 per minute.

Even if our devices don’t have quite as much „swag“, our clients and customers in the process engineering industry value our tank and apparatus building capacities – at least our constructions aren’t as much of a health threat.

This field of expertise is one of our core competences at Reiner Schmitt GmbH Brennereitechnik, next to distillery technology.

To excel in this area, means not only knowing the process inside the apparatus down to the last detail, but also requires knowledge of design theory, mechanics of materials, engineering mechanics, material science, heat transfer and fluid mechanics.

Our experts have received special training, explicitly in these areas, to make sure our containers and other highly stressed components, such as pressure tanks, comply with the raised safety standards, which must be considered in tank and apparatus building.

Some of the products and services we offer in this field include:

  • Water tanks, including piping, available in drinking water quality and on site
  • Buffer and storage tanks
  • Segmented containers
  • Fermentation tanks
  • Yeast tanks
  • Ethanol storage tanks
  • Distillation columns
  • Sanitization tanks
  • Firefighting water tanks
  • Filter boilers
  • Gravel filters
  • Silos with dosing screws and feeding screws
  • Capacitors and condensers

We also manufacture a selection of heat exchangers:

  • Behälter und Apparatebau Reiner Schmitt Brennereitechnik GmbH
  • Gärtanks
  • Behälter und Apparatebau Reiner Schmitt Brennereitechnik GmbH (3)
  • Behälter und Apparatebau Reiner Schmitt Brennereitechnik GmbH
  • Wasserpufferspeicher


  • Kolonnen
  • Verladener Behälter
  • Tube bundle heat exchangers
  • Plate heat exchangers
  • Field-tube heat exchangers

Of course all products here include pipework.

We’ve collected years worth of experience, so you don’t have to. We’d love to be your partner of choice in this area.

Questions? Maybe all those cigarette rolling machinery has got you confused, or we’ve missed a category of tanks, containers, and apparatuses you really need.

If you can’t find your desired device or application, just get in touch with us personally, and we’ll make our inventive spirit sweat for you!
