The outlet cock can be closed easily and securely. It is completely made of food-grade stainless steel (1.4301), with an easy replaceable food-grade rubber gasket. The height of the outlet cock to the floor is 13 1/2" (34,5 cm).
The pinch-cock is located at the lowest point of the bottom. The bottom is sloping towards the pinch-cock. The honey runs on its own without tiresome tilting of the extractor.
The stainless steel plate of the tank is expensive (about 5mm deep) deep-drawed into the discharge pipe of the cock and then soldered from the outside, thereby the draining honey has no contact to the solder joint!
