Engineering of a 600 Gallon Double Wall Mixing Tank

A customer in the pharmaceutical industry needed a custom fabricated process tank to replace an existing tank at their facility. The tank was used for liquid storage and mixing, as well as heating, and cooling of the products contained. Our design allowed for a capacity of 600 gallons, and was fully installed without any field construction. Engineering of a new tank included a special Brawn mixer which was designed and fabricated to fit the new tank.

A computer model was developed to allow the customer to see the finished product prior to fabrication. The new tank featured a one horse power Brawn mixer with 27" shaft and three blade prop made from T-316 stainless steel. The tank had a dome top and bottom, a sidewall capable of handling a dimple heat transfer surface, a man way in the top, mixer mount, inlet and outlets, sight glass, level indicators, and load cells on each leg. Fabrication was completed by G2's ASME certified welders and fabricators. The tank was composed of a combination of T-316L stainless steel for all of the product contact areas, and T 304 stainless steel for all structural elements. Product surface areas were polished to a 180 grit / #4, with the exterior areas polished to 180 Grit (18-23 Ra). For more information on this project see the table below or contact us directly.
