Terracon Introduces TerraPro Polypropylene Tanks

New Custom-Configured Non-Metallic Tank for Water for Injection Applications and Heat-Sanitized Ultrapure Water Systems

Holliston, MA – December 13, 2011 – Terracon Corporation has announced the introduction of TerraPro™, an innovative line of polypropylene tanks designed to meet the needs of today’s pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies for safe, reliable containment of hot liquids – up to 200°F – for water for injection (WFI) applications and heat-sanitized ultrapure water systems.

TerraPro tanks are configured to meet specific customer requirements and ensure quick set up and ease of use. TerraPro tanks are currently available in 125 and 250 gallon capacities (both models sized to fit through standard doorways). They meet FDA and cGMP standards and are USP Class VI compliant. Standard fittings, including sanitary fittings to BPE specifications, are employed to minimize installation issues.

According to Rob Jewett, Terracon president, TerraPro is a natural extension of the company’s TerraPure® tank family and demonstrates Terracon’s continued commitment to offering creative, cost-effective solutions to complex fluid management challenges. “We expect strong demand for TerraPro,” said Jewett, “as it offers clear advantages over other custom-configured tanks in the market in terms of quality, price, and performance.”

Molding the TerraPro tanks from polypropylene – not stainless steel – enables Terracon to reduce tank costs and total cost of ownership for custom pure water systems and applications. Lead times for manufacturing can also be shortened. Further, the translucent polypropylene allows end users to easily gauge water levels without a separate external sight glass.

Terracon offers a number of accessories for the TerraPro tank line. These include multiple stand options – molded pedestal, powder coated or stainless steel – and seismic restraint systems. The restraint systems can be supplied with dry-stamp or wet-stamp calculations as required by location and local regulations. An insulating blanket is also available to reduce heat loss and protect personnel from high-temperature contact.
