pH adjust is a very common application for industrial top entry agitators. pH Adjusted Agitated Tanks are used primarily in mixing chemicals into effluent water streams, and can be done continuously via inline static mixers, or with batch mixing vessels. Acidity/Basicity control is critical for assuring the downstream processes, which usually include mixing polymers and flocculants, with top mounted mechanical agitation and a polyethylene or stainless steel vessel.
The types of tanks used are primarily;
A metering pump is typically dosing a pH adjusting solution based on measured pH levels. Efficient mixing is essential to ensure the appropriate amount of adjustment chemicals are added to the water. The pumping rate of a system is determined by the inflow of water and the efficiency of the mixing system. A highly efficient mixing system will allow higher pumping rates for lower capital costs.
Example of water effluent streams that are candidates for treatment with agitated tank pH Adjustment:
- CIP Waste from Pharma Manufacturing
- Biotech Laboratories
- Semiconductor Acid Waste Neutralization
- University / R+D / Pilot Plant Laboratories
- Heavy Metals Reduction
Here at White Mountain Process, our experts work closely with the system providers and end user to ensure the most effective mixing and blending equipment is supplied to optimize the additive addition.
Rugged mixer design for 24/7 operation
- Proper wetted materials of contruction to handle the chemistry
- Vapor tite designs for odor control
- Help with tank geometry, and optimal mixer sizing for mix results and cost optimization
Also available! Orbital Shakers from White Mountain Process
Our Orbital Shakers are perfect for blending buffers, proteins, chromatography slurries and a great choice for single use mixing with either carboys or single use bags.
Orbital Lab Shakers are known for their ability to provide low shear and gentle blending, to more vigorous shaking and mixing action. Shakers are heavy duty and robust, easy to use, and extremely effective at mixing very quickly and uniformly.
Orbital Shakers typical options we can provide:
- Biopharma ready, complete documentation packages, IQ/OQ optional, FAT testing optional.
- Heavy Duty Large Volume Mixing and Small Volume blending
- Fixed Speed or Variable Speed / High or Low Speed
- Variable Speed digital display with digital countdown timer
- Temperature controlled top plate typical
- Explosion Proof and Hazardous Duty motors available
- Remote Control Operation available
- All Stainless Steel Models
Incubator High Humidity and CO2 gassed models
We also offer single-use and carboy mixers for laboratory use
.For top-quality, single-use mixing systems, contact White Mountain Process. Our single use mixers are erfect for biotech, pharmaceutical mixing, medical and other aseptic mixing and blending applications. Our customers find this system to be flexible, reliable, sanitary and remarkably easy to use.
Our Single Use Mixers can mix from ½ liter to 200 liters – with a single mixer. If more is required, we’ve designed our systems to be flexible enough to mix up to 5,000 liters with the same mixing action, even when using traditional mixing impellers.
This offers a simpler alternative to difficult-to-manage single use bags and tank liners commonly used in the industry. However, don’t let its simplicity fool you – this is no cheap, flimsy mixer. Our engineered lab mixer and tank systems meet high industry standards, and offer mixing impellers which can scale up or down. This means our single use mixers can be used for either pilot plant or production mixing processes, and other applications.
You’ll also be glad to know that like other WMProcess products, our Poly USP VI Mixing tank may be customized to suit your specific application. Choose to include tank baffles or not; order TC fittings welded to suit, and choose between other features such as dip tubes, vent filters and outlet valves, to be included if needed.
Contact White Mountain Process to discuss your project and intended applications. We can help you design a system unique to your needs, or a mixer flexible enough to mix a variety of media for nearly any imaginable application.
