Default figal tank/keg

Anyone using a figal tank for kegging? I can't find much information about these on the Internet or HBT.

Thanks in advance for any information.

figal is what the restaurant industry used to call corney kegs at least at the place I worked. Figal was shortened on the order form for five gallons

I contacted a supplier who said that they carry 5 gallon figal kegs. I am trying to get clarification on what a figal tank is. I am waiting on pictures to compare against corny. It seems strange to me that he doesn’t understand exactly what he has.

I'm resurrecting this old thread because my Coke engineer neighbor just offered me a figal keg and hoses when he found out I brewed. Anyone know about these things? Are they interchangeable with cornies and corny hardware?

Thanks much!
