Custom mixing systems optimize unique processing tasks

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

This company’s custom mixing systems (photo) are engineered to optimize unique processing projects, including batch size, material properties, agitation levels and more. Engineers can develop a mixing system that includes mixers and tanks from simple open-top designs to full ASME jacketed vessels. Whether temperature is controlled to ensure viscosity of materials, to utilize heat as a catalyst, or for other reasons, jacketed tanks are often a crucial element of custom-mixing system designs. In addition to a fully integrated mixing tank and mixer design, a host of other features are available, including polished and electropolished surfaces, dip tubes and drain-valve designs and more. — Indco, Inc., New Albany, Ind.
