These used storage and mixing tanks can be either atmospheric internal or pressure rated internal. If the tank is pressure rated they are sometimes called receivers, pressure receivers or vacuum receiver. A kettle, is a jacketed tank that can also have agitation and sometimes have internal pressure and internal vacuum. The difference between a kettle and a reactor for Federal Equipment Company’s categorization is that a kettle is rated normally 15 psi or less internal with some kettles being rated higher depending on the configuration. Tanks can be oriented vertically or horizontally. Additionally, sometimes a tank can be jacketed and not considered a kettle depending upon the how the tank is set up for use. Receivers can be jacketed as well.
