25 GALLON HYDRAULIC RESERVOIR Brand new, superior quality hydraulic reservoir. Constructed of 12 gauge, black powder-coated steel. Internal baffle slows oil to allow proper cooling. Filler/breather has 10 micron foam filter, mesh basket. Integral mounting foot on each end. Drain port sealed with removeable steel plug. Select a reservoir with usable capacity at least equal to pump flow GPM (e.g. 25 gallon usable reservoir capacity minimum for system with 25 GPM pump). Made in USA.

A: With the return at the bottom of the tank, the incoming fluid is below the lowest level of fluid in the tank, minimizing air entrainment and frothing. The baffle in the tank slows down and redirects the flow path from Return to Suction allowing for the longest possible dwell time in tank to help cooling and the escape of entrained air.

Do the 25 gal tanks come with baffle? Also breather port on top?

Does it matter which port is used for suction and return?
A: As long as the fitting and hose size is large enough to adequately supply the pump without cavitation or higher vacuum/suction levels, no. Ideally the tank should be mounted so the fluid flows down out of the tank into the pump so the pump has to generate as little suction as possible.
