Default Can a bright tank be used as a fermentator?

Hi, can a beer bright tank be used as a fermentator? I mean, once fermented you can move the beer to another tank, clean the bright tank and then use it to pressurize content. Right?

Yes, although it is not the best situation. Mainly this is because a bright tank typically has a dish bottom as opposed to the conical bottom of most fermentation vessels. The cone bottoms make it easier to remove yeast from the beer, easing the work of filtration or finings... sometimes making the use of either totally unnecessary.
