Mixing Tanks

Terracon’s knowledge and expertise are exemplified in its polypropylene and polyethylene mixing tanks. From small-volume carboy mixers to specialty applications such as low-level tulip tanks to large-scale process tanks, Terracon provides both pre-engineered and custom solutions.  From design to delivery, we offer one of the fastest response times in the industry. Our plastic mixers are more economical than metal vessels, and are not susceptible to pitting, rusting, or ionic contamination.

Terracon plastic mixers are available from low-volume, inline static mixers to 50,000 L process tanks. Stand options include plastic, stainless steel, or powder-coated metal stands. They can be ordered with cylindrical flat, cone, and dish-bottom tanks or as rectangular tanks. Options include sanitary fittings, complete drain systems, and spray balls for cleaning in place (CIP). Dual-impeller agitators, baffles, and vortex breakers can be added to optimize mixing. Terracon mixers can be configured to meet USP Class VI, cGMP, and FDA requirements.
