Industrial processes create all sorts of bulk liquids which then need to be transported via rail. Many of these will be mixtures -which cost a great deal to create or maintain.

Today’s invention is a novel way to transport liquids so that they become or stay mixed in transit.

It consists of a sterile vessel mounted on axles which are attached to their bogies, slightly off-centre.

This causes the vessel to rock from side to side in transit by a quantifiable amount…allowing a precise measure of the degree of mixing undertaken en route.
