ATL Potable Bladders


    Aero Tec Laboratories (ATL) introduces their new line of NSF/ANSI-61 compliant potable water bladder tanks that are unique and simple to set up and to operate. The ATL Aqui-fer features an innovative space-saving design that significantly reduces its overall footprint while the economical Aqua-Flex model has a more conventional shape that resembles a pillow. Unlike traditional rigi” tanks, ATL’s Aqui-fer and Aqua-Flex bladder tanks are constructed of an extremely lightweight yet super-tough nylon-reinforced rubber and are fully collapsible and can be rolled up or folded for compact storage when empty. Available in sizes from 25 to 500 gallons, both models are equipped with a 1½-inch diameter fill neck assembly and a 1-inch brass ball-valve outlet with a 6-foot length of 1-inch inside diameter clear nylon-reinforced water hose. Also included is an ATL Underliner, which lays flat underneath the bladder tank to protect it from abrasive surfaces. Other accessories available include a secure tie-down system, mesh tote-bag for storage and transport, and a sunshield that protects against UV rays.

Technically speaking, the integrated (internal) silencer lowers turbo noise at transitional RPM range (approximately 1,600-1,800 rpm). The silencer requires no additional servicing and is often now a specified feature for select major OEMS on various engine packages. Walker also has various Everquiet and Everquiet QT packages as retrofit kits for engines in existing sport-fishing or convertible vessels.
