Quality of manufacture and thoughtful design are what INOX supply to the industry.
Our mixing tanks have been installed in blue chip food processing, dairy, beverage, pharmaceutical companies all over Australia and in Indonesia, Philippines and Malaysia.
Stainless Steel Jacketed & Insulated Mixing Tanks
INOX jacketed and insulated tanks are available in many forms and sizes depending on the client requirements.
Thermal considerations are calculated by our engineers to achieve the most effective and efficient heating or cooling requirements.
After the thermal contraints are considered, the detail design and manufacturing is conducted all within our Melbourne facilities.
Correct insulation sizing and insulation type is another important factor in reducing energy losses from the tank contents and the external environmental factors which effect the product.
Dimple plate or cavity plate used on our vessels are manufactured in accordance with
- AS1210-2010 standards for use with hot or cold water and/or steam.
- Pressure ratings are up to 13.2 bar (1320kPa).
- All dimple plate is hydrostatically tested to 19.8 bar (1980kPa).
We offer only AS1210 certified dimple plate to leak proof our designs, ensure vessel jacket longevity and to ensure that product contamination is eliminated.
Suitable agitation type is available in a range of options and suitability is determined by careful consideration of the product and process factors.
Any customised design available

Stainless Steel Pressure Vessels
Inox designs and manufactures pressure vessels to the Australian Pressure Vessel code – AS1210.
Stainless steel construction, in 304 S/S, 316 S/S and SAF2205. Vessels are designed to suit customer requirements and are hygienic in design for food manufacturing processes.
Pressure Vessels are suited to processes requiring heat and pressure to maximise production.
Our stainless steel pressure vessels have been installed in dairy, beverage, food processing and chemical companies throughout Australia with the utmost of confidence that the equipment provides the hygienic requirements and are safe in operation and longevity.
Australian made and Worksafe Compliant.
Inox offer a combination of design engineering and manufacture resources that few companies can match.
Inox also design and manufacture components for pressure vessels which are commonly required on vessels such as our certified sanitary pressure manway and our aseptic sanitary bottom entry agitator.
Combining these components with our fabricated pressure vessels ensures complete AS1210 compliancy and guaranteed manufactured quality control of the equipment.
Aseptic Pressure Vessels
Inox supply Aseptic Pressure Vessels to the food processing, dairy and beverage industries where sterilisation of the vessels is required before batch replenishment.
Sterility is crucial to these processes and Inox aseptic pressure vessels have been installed in major processing plants around Australia where sensitivity to bacteria growth in food product is paramount and must be 100% eliminated during the sterilising process of the equipment.
Inox also, in addition to manufacturing aseptic pressure vessels, also provide components which are aseptic in design including our aseptic bottom entry, seal steam flushed agitator and our pressure rated manway.
All components are designed and manufactured in our Melbourne facilities.
Australian MADE and compliant Vessels

Vessel Accessories That Are Compliant To Australian Standards
ALL vessels are fitted with equipment designed and manufactured with INOX equipment such as:
- aseptic bottom entry agitators
- pressure and vacuum rated manway openings
- designs all conform to Australian Standards AS1210
INOX AS1210 Pressure and vacuum rated access manways
Automatically Operated Opening/Closing Manway
Safe Automatic opening/closing operation
This unique component is designed for vessels that are difficult to access or that contain hazardous product within the vessel.
Traditionally, pressure vessel access manways, require that swing bolts or bolted flanges be removed prior to opening the lid. It is a safety requirement that the internal pressure within the vessel is released.
The INOX automatic manway has a mechanical valve system that forces any residual pressure released from the internal shell of the chamber, prior to the mechanical operation of the opening of the lid.
The manway can be remotely operated to open or close, prior to any human intervention.
This function also avoids personell being subjected to any initial fumes that exit the vessel when the lid is first opened.
Sizes available are 450mm, 500mm and 600mm diameter, in 316SS and 304 SS construction for food, chemical and pharmaceutical installations.
Designed to AS1210 and pressure rated to 4 bar and full vacuum conditions.
