Heat, chill and mix with the ST range of portable storage tanks

13 September 2016

How do you keep chocolate in a liquid or semi-molten state so that it can be used by either you or your customers whenever it is needed? Tecno 3 has the answer in the form of the ST range of portable tanks. 

While the ST range is ideal for products such as chocolate, the tanks can be used for other products that need to be kept at a specific temperature – indeed the tanks can be specified to include a refrigeration unit instead of the standard heater. However, these tanks have other uses than simply storage; with the optional stirrer installed, the tanks can be used to blend dry products such as nuts, dried fruit and grain. A CIP (Cleaning-in-Place) module is also available and, once installed, cleaning is easy, quick and trouble free.

The range is manufactured from 304 stainless steel and is available in four sizes from 300kgs through to 2000kgs. One of the big advantages is that the smaller versions are stackable, up to 3 high, allowing significant savings in storage space. Each tank has its own independent heating system with the temperature being set by the operator depending on the product inside. 

These tanks are used extensively throughout Europe by many chocolate manufacturers who supply product in a ready to use process state – one particular major manufacturer has three hundred ST tanks which are shipped to various customers, returned, cleaned and refilled.
