Supplying sanitary industrial mixers to pharmaceutical, cosmetic and other producers of liquid products requires a thorough knowledge of industry design specifications. A mastery of fabrication and finishing processes, attention to detail and quality documentation are critical to comply with the “high end” features that are standard in these aseptic applications. INDCO understands these needs and our engineers work directly with engineers, project managers and production staff in order to meet all mixing system performance objectives. We can provide standard mixers produced to ASME BPE design requirements. Our Ph-series, PhG-series and PhGM-series are INDCO’s deluxe sanitary tri-clamp® mount mixers featuring more 316 stainless steel than competitive designs. Highly configurable, these models can be modified to meet your process needs with a multitude of optional mechanical seal arrangements, wetted part materials and finishing processes. For less critical sealed applications see our economical TCM-series and TCMG-series tri-clamp® mixers or the SM-series clamp style mixers for tanks with open tops or slotted lids. Our sanitary mixer product lines are available with electric or pneumatic motors, including non-lubricated stainless steel air motors.
INDCO produces sanitary mixers for the pharmaceutical and biotech industries using a variety of materials. Although the wetted shaft and impellers are usually 316 stainless steel, with Hastelloy as an available option, the materials used for motor mounts, mechanical seal housings, gear reducers and motors are not nearly as uniform. Industry governing specifications favor uncoated high grade alloys for all materials of construction in order to stand up to cleaning solutions and processes. Epoxy-coated washdown components are often acceptable alternatives to stainless steel at lower cost. Other options include polishing to a specified surface finish, electropolishing and coating of wetted parts. INDCO engineers provide customers with direct assistance to achieve the optimal mixer design with materials of construction that meet operational and budgetary requirements.
In addition to the mixers INDCO can also supply pharmaceutical grade stainless steel mixing tanks from 1 liter to over 500 liter volumes. Our tanks are ASME certified and can be provided with optional heating / cooling jackets, polished and electropolished surfaces and a large variety of configurations including diaphragm drains, site glasses and instrumentation ports. For optimization of the mixer and the tank together with your material properties in mind contact one of our applications engineers at (800) 851-1049. We are always available to assist you.
