Mixing Tanks for the Food and Beverage Industry
The food and beverage industry involves everything from the production to the distribution of edible goods, including soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, meat and dairy products, packaged foods, and more. Any item that is produced with the intention of being consumed is subject to stringent safety and sanitation policies. The mixing equipment for this industry must adhere to rigorous regulatory standards to ensure the safety and quality of the food products as well as consumers’ well-being.
Mixing Tanks for the Cosmetic Industry
The cosmetics industry consists of a diverse range of products, including makeup, skincare, perfumes, deodorants, and oral care products. North America is responsible for 25% of the global cosmetics industry, which is expected to reach a total market value of $805 billion by this year.
Highland Equipment understands the importance of producing safe, high-quality cosmetic products. We provide mix tanks for ointments, lotions, unguents, emollients, and more. Our team designs and fabricates stainless steel mixing tanks for cosmetics that boost your production’s efficiency, product consistency, and output. In cosmetic applications, stainless steel is the ideal mix tank material since it is non-corrosive, non-oxidizing, easy to clean, and suitable for both liquids and powders. We develop custom mixing tanks for any cosmetic product batch size, from large to small.
Mixing Tanks for the Pharmaceutical Industry
The pharmaceutical manufacturing industry requires sanitary processing equipment that ensures product purity and safety. Since these products are so directly tied to consumer health and well-being, it is absolutely critical that pharmaceutical manufacturing operations adhere to all necessary sanitation requirements. Stainless steel mixing tanks from Highland Equipment meet all of these regulations while also achieving ideal product consistency and uniformity.

As products intended for consumption, beer and other brewed beverages must adhere to health and safety standards. Since breweries house warm, wet environments ideal for microbial growth, their manufacturing equipment must be designed with sanitation in mind. Highland Equipment brings trusted expertise to mixing tanks for brewery applications.
