Oil and Gas > Tank Storage

The storage of raw materials or finished products prior to packaging must preserve the characteristics and qualities of the stored products.

Raw materials often contain particles in suspension (for example: paraffin oil), or have heterogeneities (such as crude oil and a variable rate with heavy oil).

Maintenance of various homogeneous substances is essential to prevent material deposits.

Milton Roy Mixing has developed a range of side-entry agitators based upon the following specifications:

1: Reducing environmental footprint through the reduction of power consumption and the use of non-polluting and recyclable materials (eco-design).

Milton Roy Mixing uses SABRE® propellers with high hydraulic efficiency.

The high-amplitude liquid jet—powered by the propeller—allows animation of very large volumes (thousands of m3) with only a few watts expended per square meter.

The optimized design of the device uses less material.

2: Risk analysis results in optimum safety for operators, including such benefits as:

  • Ergonomic design
  • Easy maintenance and low cost
  • Simple implementation upon the lateral flange of the tank

3: Agitation efficiency is increased for better process performance.

Milton Roy Mixing provides solutions based upon studies conducted by its R&D department, with the help of the Computering Fluids Dynamics (CFD) division. Confirmed by more than 40 years of experience with large agitated volumes and the construction of more than 1,000 side-entry mixers.

This option ensures a tank without a dead zone and lower energy consumption (approximately 25 to 33 percent) compared to conventional solutions.

Equipment used

Side entry

Side-entry applications include oil storage, raw and finished products, winemaking processes, ethanolic fermentation, and additive preparation. Processes include homogenization and heat transfer (heating, cooling, temperature holding, and transfer).
