This company has fabricated a 300-gal vessel (photo) designed for 5 psi internal pressure at 300°F. All of the wetted surfaces are stainless-steel type 304L polished to 240-grit finish. The vessel is agitated by a special disperser blade driven to 1,150 rpm by a 75-h.p. explosion-proof motor. The agitator shaft utilizes a mechanical seal running in an oil bath. A 50-psig ASME Code-stamped baffled jacket surrounds the sides and vessel bottom for heating and cooling. All elastomers, nozzles, sensors, dip tubes, valves and operator controls are supplied based on the end user’s specific requirements. Numerous other custom-engineered options are available on fabricated pressure vessels, including jacketing, agitation, pressurization, sanitary requirements and more. — Charles Ross and Son Co., Hauppauge, N.Y.
