Description

Armfield FT140 Multipurpose Mixing Vessels are designed and constructed using high-quality hygienic industry standard materials. These tanks are available in three models in varying configurations (see table) and are available in 50l and 100l volumes. All three models have an internal surface made of AISI 316 stainless steel.

These tanks have been designed for industrial applications and are ideal for product storage and formulation in factory and pilot plant environments. All tanks are supplied with an anti-dust cover, which is connected to an electronic safety switch. This ensures mixing only takes place when the lid is closed unless you choose to override. They also come with an anti-oxidant lid and a visualisation column for level indication.

The agitators are manufactured with alternately rotating racks, making these vessels ideal for preparing and mixing dense products like creams, soups and broths. Electronically controlled variable speed turbo-emulsifiers with holes or slots can also be used for agitation.

Cooling in the jacketed vessel is achieved using an external water supply or by means of a closed circuit cooling system. The control panels are IP65 rated. They come complete with a manual override safety switch, temperature controller, indicator lamps, speed regulator, a fully protected Plexiglas casing and an emergency stop button.
