Cones, Conical Flanged Ends
The choice of a cone can be a practical alternative to a dome, but it also requires skill and know-how to press-form, weld, knuckle, and achieve a good quality finished cone shape. Cones are often used if the material is too thin to press a dome without buckling, and if it is not necessary to acquire a dome shape.

Global Stainless also make offset cones for wine tanks.
