Flexcon Mixmaster: The Safe Reliable Way To Disinfect Potable Water

Flexcon "Mixmaster" baffle tank

The Mixmaster baffle tank by Flexcon is a revolutionary design which increases the retention time for water treatment in up to four times greater than a standard contact tank. This is achieved by our patented internal baffle in conjunction with a diffuser which redirects the water and increases the mixing of water and injected chemicals. The turbulence created in the baffle increases the treatment time by a baffle factor of .8, close to four times more effective than other non-baffled tanks. Results have been confirmed by third party testing from the Water Quality Association laboratories. Available in two sizes, 80 and 119 gallons, these tanks are installer friendly and easy to maintain. This and the reliability and toughness synonymous with all Flexcon tanks makes the Mixmaster the first choice in retention tanks.

  • Polypropylene internal baffle increases retention time to a .8 baffle factor
  • Internal riser with diffuser to ensure proper mixing
  • Internal polypropylene tank wrapped with epoxy coated fiberglass for a durable, corrosion resistant finish
  • Durable base engineered to withstand maximum loads and extreme environmental conditions
  • Top connection with stainless steel reinforcement ring is encapsulated in a precision molded dome to withstand the harshest environments
  • Durable PVC water connection
