Main machine parameters of Tanks, Melting Tanks, and Boilers 

There are several key parameters for tanks, boilers, and melting tanks that one must consider during selection and operation to ensure efficiency and effectiveness in your pharmaceutical or chemical processes. Here's an overview of the primary ones:

Tanks

Capacity: The volume a tank can hold is crucial, as it determines the scale of operations it can accommodate.

Material of Construction: This can influence a tank's resistance to corrosion, its suitability for the process conditions, and the ease of cleaning and maintenance.

Temperature and Pressure Ratings: These indicate the maximum operational conditions the tank can safely handle.

Agitation Speed: If fitted with an agitator, its speed can affect the rate of mixing or dispersion.

Jacket Type: The type of jacket (dimple, half pipe, full coverage) will determine the tank's heating or cooling efficiency.

Boilers

Fuel Type: The type of fuel used (oil, gas, biomass, electric) can influence boiler efficiency and operating costs.

Output Capacity: This is typically measured in kilowatts or BTUs and indicates the maximum heat or steam the boiler can produce.

Pressure Rating: The maximum pressure that the boiler is designed to operate at safely.

Efficiency: The ratio of the useful output (steam) to the energy input, often expressed as a percentage.

Design Type: Fire-tube, water-tube, and electric boilers each have different operational characteristics.

Melting Tanks

Capacity: Similar to tanks, the volume a melting tank can hold will dictate its suitability for your scale of operation.

Temperature Range: The operational range of the tank’s heating system. This should align with the melting point of the materials you're processing.

Agitation Speed and Type: If the melting tank is equipped with an agitator, its speed and type can influence the rate and evenness of melting.

Heating Method: Indirect heat (via a jacket or coils) or direct heat (via an immersed heating element) will influence heating efficiency and product quality.

Material of Construction: Stainless steel is commonly used for its excellent heat transfer and corrosion resistance, but the best choice will depend on the product being processed.

These parameters should be carefully considered based on the specific requirements of your operation to ensure you select the most suitable equipment for your needs.
