Terracon Introduces New Molded Stand for its TerraPure® Line of Tanks
Franklin, MA – May 7, 2014 – Terracon Corporation has announced the introduction of a new re-designed plastic stand for its industry-leading TerraPure line of tanks. These tanks are used by businesses in a wide range of industries – including biopharmaceutical, medical, and alternative energy – for pure water and water for injection applications.
The new TerraPure stand, which will now ship with all TerraPure tanks requiring a molded stand, supports over 4,000 lbs. Additionally, it offers a number of improvements over the company’s existing plastic stand – among them: a new “ four-leaf clover” design that enables installation of an off-center bottom fitting and greater access to the bottom of the tank; users will now be able to reach 40 percent of this surface making it easier to add plumbing and wiring below the tank or to install sensors in the tank “dish.”
Molded from linear polyethylene (LPE) in Terracon blue, the new TerraPure stand weighs just 40 lbs; this, along with its low profile, makes the stand easy to carry and maneuver – even in tight spaces. Its molded feet or “bumps” minimize the stand’s contact with the floor and prevent any wicking action.
“This new stand reflects the kind of ingenuity and engineering know-how that we bring to all our products and solutions,” said Rob Jewett, president of Terracon. “Moreover, it offers a number of features that respond directly to customer feedback and will help us maintain the industry- leading position we enjoy with the TerraPure tank line.”
From industrial mixers to bicarb units used for hemodialysis, Terracon designs and delivers custom plastic tanks and vessels for storage, mixing, and transport of a wide variety of fluids.
