A few days back, on my 30th birthday, a flash of memories passed through my mind. Those memories kept me in my reverie for hours and made me think about how different I was in my childhood.
When I was a child, I was adventurous; I was vigorous and always ready to explore everything and anything. I remember my first visit to a food manufacturing factory – my mind is unable to recall what exactly the factory was manufacturing; pardon me for that.
Right after I stepped into the factory, all my eyes could observe were containers, tubes, and pipes. And trust me with this, everything in the factory was HUMONGOUS!
The bulkiest containers in the arena fascinated me the most. So much so that I couldn’t resist inquiring employees about these bulky tanks. Join me to know what employees tell me about those gigantic mixing vessels!
What are Mixing Tanks?
So the first thing one senior employee told me about those enormous vessels was related to their identity!
He told me that these are ‘Mixing Tanks‘ that are used in industries to blend multiple liquids so that a product or new compound is created. For the intake of each component, there is a separate pathway or inlet. Similarly, for letting things out, the mixing vessel has a separate route or outlet.
Why Mixing Vessels are Mostly Made of Stainless Steel?
The other thing I noticed about the mixing vessels was that all of them were made up of the same material. It made me wonder if this is the only material in which tanks are made or if there are other options.
So I asked one of the workers!
He told me that the major component of the majority of the mixing vessels is ‘Stainless Steel’. However, this is not the only option for these vessels; it is the most common option though.
Apart from stainless steel, mixing vessels are made of good-quality plastic, glass, and durable rubber. Stainless steel vessels have their advantages and benefits, which have led to their popularity and continual usage.
I asked him if he could tell me some of the benefits of using vessels made of stainless steel.
He nodded his head positively and commenced the benefits:
Stainless steel is easy to wash. By applying abundant dishwashing liquid and powder, vessels are all set for the next use.
2. Smooth Surfaces
Mixing vessels made of stainless steel are sturdy, durable, and have smooth surfaces, which play an invisible role in the perfect blending of mixed components.
3. High Resistance to Corrosion
Stainless steel shows enhanced corrosion resistance. This is advantageous when the industry is working with acidic substances. Thus, mixed content survives longer in stainless steel vessels in comparison to other vessels.
Stainless steel is a one-time investment. Once you purchase it, you don’t need to invest money in its cleaning and maintenance.
Mixing Tanks are enormous mixing vessels that are used for mixing different liquids. Such vessels are mostly made of stainless steel, and many companies like Cedarstone Industry are marketing it at competitive prices.
