A wax tank has to do more than just act as a temporary vessel for some melted wax. It has to be an integral part of the product process, which means that, like all your other equipment, it has to provide reliable performance and easy-to-use features.
Whether your wax tanks are used for short run projects or volume production, they need to deliver consistent results while remaining energy efficient over the long haul.
These tanks and vats can be used for dip coating parts and packaging, impregnating and melting, and dispensing wax for mold filling. They have been employed in a range of industries, including candle making, testing and analysis laboratories, and the medical industry.
These tanks come in a variety of sizes, so you can get the equipment that fits your production process. Getting the right capacity is important to avoid bottlenecks and ensure that the final products still meet your quality standards.
An effective tank has to be more than a vat that keeps the wax nice and warm. There are some important characteristics you should expect from a high-quality wax tank. This includes:
Uniform heating – There should never be any hot spots that could ruin the product.
Temperature ranges – Different materials react differently at a range of temperatures so your tank needs to provide those options.
Precise control – If you are changing the heat, you need to be able to precisely control the temperature to ensure nothing is burned or ruined.
High or low power settings – If you need faster melting times, you can change the power settings accordingly. If, on the other hand, you share a common power source, you can set it to a lower consumption level.
Energy efficient – In general, our tanks use very little electricity. In some cases, they require less than 1,000 watts, which is about what your coffee maker uses at home.
Heated drain valves – This will ensure that clogging doesn’t happen when you need to pour or drain the remaining wax.
Digital thermostat controls – The solid state circuitry of our vats allows you to control the exact temperature to within one degree.
Multiple vats need multiple temperature controls – If you’re using multiple colors or products, they could react differently at different temperatures, so you need to control each one separately for the most efficient production.
Insulation – All the surfaces of our tanks are insulated for maximum heat retention. This helps control the exact temperature because the heat stays where it’s needed instead of escaping into the air.
Easy, Simple, and Safe
In the end, what matters most is that these tanks are easy to use, simple to maintain, and safe for extended periods of use. Whether it involves single dipping chambers or several vats, you need to know that you can rely on your equipment to complete your projects and create products with the highest-quality materials.
