For the FRP tanks of sizes around 2 metres, could there be a design such tanks when it is mounted with an agitator (rotating at around 100 rpm). It is suggested to have the agitator support through steel structural arrangement outside the tank to take care of the dynamic loads of the agitator.
If the above is to be considered the removal of agitator for maintenance becomes a practical issue.
Thanks to share your experience of the FRP tanks with agitator support on to the tank instead of the external supports.
