Cosmetics & Personal Care Mixing Tank

SFI is an experienced fabricator of high quality custom designed mixing tanks and vessels for the cosmetics, health, and personal care industry. In business since 1985, our tanks can be found across the continental US and around the world. We have had many opportunities to work with companies in the health & personal care industry to produce tanks that will process and store many of the personal care products used by consumers today.

These products include:

  • Baby products
  • Body wash
  • Conditioner
  • Cosmetics
  • Hair gel
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Liquid soap
  • Lotions
  • Mouthwash

We will build your tanks in our shop or on-site at your facility. These vessels include:

  • Mixing and blending tanks and kettles
  • Pressure vessels and reactors
  • Storage tanks, bins, hoppers, columns

and more...

On-site Fabrication

Field fabrication is particularly helpful if you need the tank in an existing building where access is limited.  Our fabrication methods allow us the flexibility to work in practically any type of condition. Whether you need a tank constructed under a roof or in tight quarters, we build our tanks from the top down, working at ground level. Field fabrication is our specialty!

Agitation Capabilities

SFI Engineers will design agitation for your process, whether it be a single turbine agitator or a complex system with a turbine and sweep/scrape mixer.  We design your system to blend your product’s viscosity, from a thin solution like peroxide to thick products such as shampoo, conditioner or hand sanitizer.
