Mixing Tanks

FERTILISERS AND CHEMICALS

Tanks West manufactures a range of mechanical mixing tanks suitable for most agricultural fertilisers. The increasingly widespread use of liquid fertilisers has produced a growing demand for mixing tanks, which allow on-site preparation of fertilisers and chemicals.

Using mixing tanks, growers are able to produce individual fertiliser combinations, to best suit their particular needs.

Featuring heavy-duty industrial impeller mixers direct mounted to the roof of the tank, our chemically resistant mixing tanks are capable of blending and dissolving dry fertilisers, additives and other liquids in a water-based solution.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • High agitation rates for rapid batch turn around
  • Aggressive floor scouring to prevent sediment
  • Ability to produce specific fertiliser/Chemical Recipes
  • Single and Three phase drive motors available
  • Integrated design – no mounting frames required
  • Variety of hatch styles for easy loading of dry fertilisers

Tanks West mixing tanks enable growers to mix fertiliser and chemicals on site and tailor the mix to individual specifications.

WHY THE MIXERS WORK SO WELL

Tanks West mixing tanks utilise axial flow impellers which discharge downwards towards the vessel bottom this creates a flow pattern across the floor of the tank and up the vertical walls. This flow vector then blends with the circular flow being created by the rotation of the blade to give even mixing of the entire contents of the tank.

The batch turnover rate gives an indication of the pumping capacity of the mixer, it can be seen from the chart below that Tanks West mixing tanks are designed to move the entire contents of the tank twice each minute. In the large tanks this means the mixer is moving 20,000 litres of liquid per minute, or 30 times more than a common motor driven transfer pump.

A typical mix of say 4000 kg of dry fertiliser and 7000 litres of water would be mixed in under one hour.
