Touch Tank

Our Cold Water Touch Tank is the most popular, well constructed system available today for use in classrooms, museums and science centers. Our Cold Water Touch Tank (model # 3030TTC12) is designed to keep fresh and saltwater organisms alive which require temperatures below ambient room temperature and as cold as 45 degrees F. One of the best features of our Touch Tanks is the filtration system design. Water flows over the stand pipe and down into a filter bag (trapping large solids) which is filled with carbon, before penetrating a finer mesh filter pad, then passing through a bed of dolomite (providing buffering and surface area as the biological filter). A reliable water pump then pushes the water through a cartridge filter, Ultraviolet Sterilizer (protects against algae, protozoans and harmful bacteria) and chiller before returning the water to the tank via a venturi (adds oxygen).

The filter system is easy to maintain and allows easy access to all components without ever having to remove the live stock just to service the filter.

In addition to a great filtration system, the Touch Tank looks as good as it functions. The bold look of 316 Stainless Steel top rails, thermal pane glass (prevents condensation), translucent lids and hundreds of choices of insulated cabinet finishes ensure your system looks just how you want it. The standard model is white laminate finish but upgrade choices including custom laminates and Stainless Steel are available.

The Touch Tank dimensions are 30” x 30” x 52” tall. Each system includes 4 heavy duty castors allowing easy maneuvering through a standard doorway.
