Versatile & Scalable Make-up and Use Tanks
Batch systems typically utilize a make-up tank and one or more use tanks. Ingredients are measured into the make-up tank, mixed together, and may be heated or cooled. The mixture is then transferred to a use tank, which is designed to maintain the product’s characteristics until it’s used in further processes.
The make-up and use tanks can be mounted on load cells for accurate weighing of ingredients and for inventory control of the mixed solution. Material is pumped from use tanks, and the discharge rate can be measured using load cells or flow meters. Depending on the process, additional items such as external heat exchangers, condensers or evaporators, can be integrated into these systems.
