Company: SPX Corp., Charlotte, NC
Equipment Snapshot: Designed to meet the required standards of the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, the Lightnin SanStar SSi (Stainless Steel inline) sanitary mixer’s performance and operation also make it ideal for food applications, says SPX Corp. The unit’s polished 300 series stainless steel housings are easy to clean, provide corrosion protection, and are suitable for use in clean-in-place (CIP) and sterilize-in-place (SIP) operations. Single, dry-running mechanical seals are available with or without a sanitary purge gland; all seals come with food-grade faces and United States Pharmacopeia (USP) Class VI elastomers. Various motor options and impeller types are available to meet a wide variety of tank sizes. In addition, the SanStar SSi mixer’s smaller footprint makes it a good choice where space is limited.
