Flat & Cone Bottom Mixing Tanks are both used as mixing vessels, however, there are several big differences between the two styles of the tank. The biggest difference being the cone bottom tanks providing a full drain for process, drainage and cleaning.
Flat mixing tanks provide optimum capacity distributing the weight evenly across the base of the tank. Flat base mixer tanks are more competitive per litre of capacity as they do not require a separate frame like a cone tank. However, it is difficult to get a full drain for batch mixing and difficulties when cleaning to prevent reactions between incompatible ingredients.
Cone bottom mixing tanks provide a full drain while at the same time preventing helping prevent powders and solids from falling out of suspension. Conical mixer tanks are generally used for batch processes where different batches of products require washdown or CIP cleaning to prevent contamination between batches.
Flat Base Mixer Tanks
Flat bottom mixing tanks are rotationally moulded plastic tanks of a single piece construction. These high-density food-grade materials in natural (white) colour permit easy viewing of content level in natural light. These tanks can be to specify to 1.5 and 2.0 SG for different liquids.
Mixer storage vessels play a crucial role in temperature, and the equalisation of the substances contained within these vessels. These flat bottom tanks are vital for material durability, hygiene, safety, and quality. These storage tanks are adopted by a range of industries, including chemical, petrochemical refining to pharmaceutical products.
Open Top Flat Base Mixer Tanks
Open top flat base mixer tanks are often used in fertiliser and water treatment applications for ease of adding ingredients and where hygiene is too important. The mechanical integrity of the mixing components and the drive system integrity to ensure the best solution. By matching the profile, pumping and power needs of your application, the right impeller for mixer can be provided for your application.
Direct drive mixers are directly driven from the motor for large high shear, or small-scale mixing applications. Also used for dosing tank and drum mixing, homogenisation and high shear mixing.
Conical Base Mixer Tanks
Conical bottom mixing tanks are single piece tank made from food-grade polyethene. Our plastic mixer tanks permit easy viewing of content level in natural light. Our range of conical tanks is designed for the containment of liquids up to 1.5 SG. The heavy-duty galvanised steel support frame is supplied as standard.
Conical mixing tanks and vessels play a crucial role in material supply and product holding. In many instances, the temperature, pressure, and equalisation of the substances contained within this vessel are vital for material durability, hygiene, safety, and quality. Agitators are often applied to assist these processes. Bulk storage tanks are adopted by a range of industries, including chemical, petrochemical refining to pharmaceutical products.
Our extensive knowledge and years of experience in the mixing industry allow us to design and manufacture the correct plastic mixing tank and mixing equipment to your requirements. As well cone bottom mixer tanks with agitators, brine tank and other mixer units can be fitted with equipment including bunds, pipework, mounting frames and stainless steel agitators for food-grade applications.
