The Right Mixing Tank Design Makes a Big Difference

Posted on August 20, 2021 by Cedarstone Industry Team

Cedarstone Industry custom designs and builds mixing tanks for customers in a number of industries. We take considerable pride in our tanks, knowing that the right tank design makes a substantial difference on the production floor. Our customers trust us because we know all the ins and outs of designing and building high quality cosmetic, flange top, and general mixing tanks.

Technically, mixing tanks can be made from any number of materials. We prefer stainless steel. Stainless steel is tough, reliable, hygienic, and extremely easy to clean. It is the perfect material for mixing everything from liquid food products to cosmetics and medicines.

Options for Any Application

Regardless of the application, we can build and design a mixing tank perfect for your needs. If you need an open or closed top tank, just let us know. Pressurized and vacuum tanks are also on the table. We design and build both portable and fixed tanks to exact customer specifications.

Take a look at our general mixing tanks page to see just how much variety is available. There are nine examples on that page complete with illustrations to give you an idea of what you are looking at. The nine examples are all jacketed tanks. Six are dish-bottom tanks while the other three are conical-bottom tanks. We also offer different options for manways, agitation, and baffling.

Rest assured that these nine examples are just the beginning. We have the ability to design and build whatever your application requires. If none of our examples fit the bill, just let us know. We will design something from the ground up.

Why the Right Design Matters

Our business is like any other in the sense that our customers could settle for production models. They could buy something off the shelf, so to speak, and make it work for their applications. We do not think that this is a good idea. Mixing tanks are highly specialized pieces of equipment designed to do things a certain way.

The right design matters for a number of reasons:

  • Health and Safety — First and foremost, mixing tanks have to comply with health and safety regulations. If you are using a tank that isn’t really appropriate for your application, you might not be able to adequately address health and safety concerns.
  • Production Quality — Whatever product you are mixing in your tanks must live up to your standards of quality. The right design ensures repeatable quality batch after batch. On the other hand, a poorly designed tank could hinder your quality significantly.
  • Production Efficiency — Efficiency is one of the keys to profitability. The right design can increase your mixing capacity, thereby boosting production and lowering the cost of each batch.
  • Tank Reliability — Tank design often correlates to the materials being mixed in them. If the design does not match the work a tank is designed to do, mechanical breakdowns and other failures are a real possibility. The right tank design minimizes those risks.

At the very least, you need mixing tanks that you can trust. They need to be tough enough to handle the daily punishment your production line dishes out. They need to be durable enough to last for years. They need to be easy to clean, cost-effective to maintain, and simple enough to operate by trained team members.

The right mixing tank design can make an enormous difference. Don’t trust your production to generic tanks that may not have been designed for the work you do. Instead, let us design and build something we both know will meet your needs.
