Terracon Introduces TerraPro Mixer at INTERPHEX Japan

New Polypropylene Mixing Tank is Pre-Engineered to Meet Needs of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers

Franklin, MA – July 9, 2014 – Terracon Corporation has announced the introduction of a new production-sized mixing tank – the TerraPro Mixer – designed to meet the need of life sciences companies for a high-performance mixer that can be delivered quickly; the pre-engineered version ships in just two to four weeks.

First shown at the recent INTERPHEX Japan in Tokyo, the TerraPro Mixer is ideal for media and buffer preparation. Molded from USP Class VI polypropylene, the mixing tank is self-draining and can handle from 350 to 600 liters at a liquid viscosity range of 1 to 500 cps.

The TerraPro Mixer is extremely durable yet lightweight; it can be easily moved or repositioned using its welded-in-place handles and polyethylene stand with casters. The mixing tank is spray nozzle cleanable and includes a pre-wired speed controller, cGMP cover with standard fittings, and a vapor tight, animal-free USP VI lip seal on the mixer itself. All fittings are designed to meet aseptic transition requirements.

“Response to this product at INTERPHEX Japan was excellent,” said Rob Jewett, president of Terracon. “While we’re known for our custom tanks and mixers – when the market speaks, we listen. A lot of companies have been asking us to design a mixing tank with these features that could be delivered in a month or less. This product reflects the same high standards we bring to our custom tanks and mixers, but provides the benefit of quick turn-around. We expect the same strong, positive reaction here in the U.S. to what we saw in Japan.”

Given its reputation for custom solutions, Terracon offers a number of options and enhancements for the TerraPro Mixer to meet specific customer applications. Options include but are not limited to a total drain diaphragm valve, a stainless tie-down solution for greater tank stability, and a wide range of ports and fittings.
