Sanitary Tanks

Sanitary Conical Tanks

Developed to address the special needs of the pharmaceutical and related industries, Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics Sanitary Process Vessels are manufactured from a special resin that allows the unit to withstand autoclaving. These tanks provide corrosion protection and also prevent metallic contamination. A low-cost alternative to metal, our sanitary tanks also offer complete drainage and a wide assortment of compatible accessories. The units are made to each customer's unique process requirements. Sampling devices, spray jets, mixers, three drainage options, and specified fitting placement are just a few examples of the options available.

Typical Applications

Typical applications include buffer mixing, media preparations, and small scale production. Modifications can also be made to accommodate special size needs. The units are also completely compatible with Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics hoses, piping systems, and tubing products, helping to maintain Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics' reputation as a worldwide leader in the pharmaceutical, industrial, and life science industries.
