Why are some SS tanks sloped-bottom and some conical? Any practical differences?

Sloped bottom usually used for Red Fermentation where the cap is left when the wine is drained and hence are common in Variable capacity tanks. Conicals are handy for fermentation of juice and for storage and settling. Flatter bottom conicals are also used in red fermentation, particularly when they have a Total Discharge door which allows for easy ejection of the must.
