Mixing technology for all your crude oil & derivatives storage tanks
Typically, large storage tanks require the constant mixing of contents, but roof-mounted agitators cannot support the heavy load. In response, Milton Roy Mixing has developed a specific range of side-entry mixers for large-volume storage tanks.
Our side-entry mixer is mounted quickly and easily to the tank flange and delivers the most effective blending results in an extremely efficient unit. Our innovative small diameter SABRE® impeller allows for reduced energy consumption and easy installation.
In addition, we can ensure proper agitation using numerical simulation of fluid flows (CFD). This helps to forecast and predict the storage tanks mixing with no dead zone, and lower energy consumption compared to conventional solutions. We can also provide an adjustable agitator to increase the scope enclosure.
The side-entry mixer concept is driven by four top priorities: safety, reliability, process optimization and easy, cost-effective maintenance.
Oil & Gas
When crude oil is produced, it’s accompanied by sand, salt and other unwanted debris.
Until the crude is delivered to the refinery, bottom sludge & water (BS&W) can settle on the bottom of a tank. Milton Roy Mixing’s Side Entry Mixer keeps BS&W in suspension by generating the right fluid velocity distribution to provide the highest and most efficient performance.
