Non-metallic Media Slurry Tank for Process-scale Chromatography
Terracon Corporation has introduced a new non-metallic media slurry tank for process-scale chromatography and other biotech applications. Designed for optimal mixing of media slurry, the cylindrical cone-bottom tank is available in polyethylene or polypropylene -- and in sizes ranging from 200 to 2000 liters. Terracon’s plastic media slurry tank eliminates the oxidization and pitting often seen with stainless tanks and the associated risk of cross contamination, which is critical to maintaining purity in the manufacturing process. The media slurry tanks feature a vertically aligned shaft equipped with both a main turbine, which circulates the fluid in the tank, and a tickler impeller that “reaches” deep into the tank’s cone bottom to stir up anything that may have settled.
