Solving Mixing & Dispensing Process Challenges

We offer advanced engineering and fabrication for your drying, heat transfer, mixing, blending, and material handling processes. Our team of designers and fabricators is accustomed to working on new, never-before-built products, and will put their skills to work to deliver the finest, custom-fabricated stainless steel equipment and systems. We protect your intellectual property and proprietary information at all stages of the design and production process.

Batch Processing Systems

Make-Up Tank

Batch systems typically comprise a make-up tank and one or more use tanks. The ingredients of your recipe are measured into the make-up tank where they are mixed together and may be heated or cooled. When this mixture is complete the product is transferred to a use tank.

Use Tank

The use tank is designed to maintain the product’s characteristics while the material is being withdrawn to be used in the process. The make-up and use tanks can be mounted on load cells for accurate weighing of the make-up ingredients and for inventory control of the mixed solution.

Withdraw Material

The material is withdrawn from the use tank using one or more pumps, and the discharge rate is measured using the load cells or by pumping through flow meters. Depending on the process, additional items such as external heat exchangers, condensers, or evaporators can also be included with these systems.

All of the required process and utility piping is mounted on a stainless steel framework. The electrical devices are wired and tested prior to shipment. Control panels can be mounted on the skid or remote-mounted.

Dispensing Systems

With the proper design, dispensing systems provide an accurate method of delivering single or multiple solutions to the process. These systems typically include holding tanks specifically designed to maintain the properties of the solution over time to ensure that the solution delivered is consistent. The solutions are then pumped, using a variety of different metering pumps, to deliver them where required in the process.

These systems may include flow meters or other instruments to ensure that the delivery rates are accurate and constant. These types of systems are typically used to provide colors, flavors, or oils to the downstream process. These types of systems can be designed for continuous or batch delivery. These systems may include heat exchangers or other equipment.
