Mixing, pressure, heating/cooling and hygiene
Let our engineers think with you about different trade-offs for the perfect tankdesign.
Chemical, mechanical or physical processes occur in all industries. Tanks are almost always involved in this. We have the knowledge needed to turn the required process into an efficient and effective tank design.
Process vessels or reactors are always complex tanks, in which diverse factors play a role. Allow our engineers to collaborate with you in order to find the optimal combination of factors, such as the mixing of powders or liquids, pressure, heating/cooling and hygiene. They have the experience in order to aid you in terms of selecting the correct types of connectors, optimal spraying ball positioning and the correct finishing level. They are also aware of all typical tank designs and appendages that are applicable in your industry, whether this concerns mobile process vessels for the pharmaceutical industry or CCT tanks for the beer industry.
Our engineering and production departments are able to satisfy the most stringent requirements and standards. This allows us to design and build PED-certified pressure vessels entirely ourselves in accordance with NEN-EN13445 and AD2000. By having engineering, production and quality control in-house, we are able to supervise quality to the greatest extent possible and guarantee you solutions that satisfy the most stringent requirements. Aside from the workmanship of our products, our documentation and material traceability of our products is of the highest standard.
We can supply the agitator as well as the tank. Gpi has a good working relationship with all reputable agitator suppliers for problem-free processing, precise integration with the tank design, and assembly.
As a standard, Gpi ensures a high-finishing level. For some applications, such as in the food industry or even in the pharmaceutical industry, specific requirements are applicable. As a standard, food tanks are produced with an internal roughness of Ra 0.8, but if desired we can also produce tanks with much smoother (and therefore more hygienic) inner walls.
For processes such as pasteurisation and fermentation, heating and cooling of the tank are crucial. Ensure the correct combination of heating/cooling capabilities and insulation of the tank in order to heat or cool your product within the desired time frame. Let Gpi know directly what heating/cooling capacity you require, and we will collaborate with you in order to arrive at the most efficient solution, whether this concerns a dimple, a double wall or a half pipe.
