Mixers for Media, Slurries, and Process Chromatography

Terracon’s mixers offer proven, reliable solutions that are designed and built to your requirements in as little as 4 to 6 weeks. These 20 L to 2,000 L cylindrical cone, dish-bottom tanks or carboys provide optimal mixing with options that include agitators with multiple impellers, baffles for complete mixing, and spray balls for cleaning in place (CIP).
