What is a CBD / THC Mixing Tank?
CBD and THC mixing tanks are vessels used in the extraction, distillation, and isolation of products using THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the primary psychoactive component of the cannabis plant ) and CBD (cannabidiol, the primary non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant). In addition, CBD and THC mixing tanks are also used for crafting and manufacturing finished cannabis-based products such as beverages, tinctures, and isolates. CBD and THC mixing tanks are typically made of food-grade materials such as 304 stainless steel and are manufactured to exact specifications dependent upon their intended use, capacity, and the product to be produced.

PKW CBD / THC Mixing Tank Specifications
Safety – PKW places workers’ safety and your success at the forefront of our design and engineering
Safe operation is a key component of any production beverage plant. Over generations of design, PKW has seamlessly integrated safety features into every system we design and ship from our American manufacturing facility located in Portland Oregon.
These safety features include:
- Clean-in-place (CIP) facilities
- Modulating pump and transfer systems
- Emergency shutdown
- UL listed 508A componentry
Sanitation – Food safety begins with proper sanitation
Every PKW CBD and THC beverage mixing and blending tank is equipped with our proprietary CIPMaster clean-in-place (CIP) technology. CIPMaster allows your production crew to effectively and efficiently clean every mixing tank in the facility without ever having to enter the tank to clean it.
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations make dangerous, confined space entry both time consuming and expensive. With PKW’s CIPMaster, confined space entry is totally eliminated as vessels are scoured clean by simply pumping cleaning solution through our engineered CIP apparatus installed on every mixing tank we manufacture. Safety and sanitation are seamlessly managed in one simple operation.
Volume and Temperature Control – The key to repeatability and consistency
With PKW CBD / THC mixing tanks, every step of the way, your production crew will process at optimal flow rates, volumes, and temperatures, making repeatability and consistency a hallmark of your brand.
Further, PKW has mastered temperature control. Precisely heated or cooled water, called “liquor” in manufacturing operations, is conveniently mixed and measured using our proprietary sensor read, flow, and temperature control manifold assembly. We replace guesswork with simple, easy to use automation features that assure repeatability and precision. Temperature control is completely integrated into all of our mixing tanks, fermenters, and carbonation systems. Contact us for details.
pH Sensing and Control – Automation that makes your day the best it can be, and your brand stand out among your competition
pH is a critical control factor in many beverage production operations. With PKW’s proprietary pH sensing and feedback system, pH can be accurately measured and used to automatically trigger process controls. Our optional pHMaster sensing and control system allows the operator to preset the desired pH band to either:
- Notify the operator automatically that the desired pH has been obtained
- Auto-cool/heat the tank and its contents to prevent over-processing
Convenience and repeatability are the goal, and PKW’s pHMaster is designed to put winning results at your fingertips.
