DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE MIXING/ AGITATORS AND PERSITALTIC HOSE PUMPS
Portable air or direct drive units are supplied with swivel brackets perfect for mounting desired angle. Some small top entry direct and gear drive units can be mounted for applications with multiple containers. Angular mounted or angular offset agitators are commonly employed for use in cylindrical mixing vessel which are un-baffled. The portability of our small agitators gives good flexibility, allowing freedom to move form one vessel to another. Our application engineers are on the hand to advise the most suitable configuration for our needs, to ensure these versatile agitator offer the user the most economic mixing solution.
These small top entry agitators are directly powered by the installed motor, being the most cost effective and quick agitator to supply. There are many small and easy applications where direct drive agitators are well suited. Using our range of F3 axial flow impellers, the agitator delivers on the process requirements. Direct drive agitators are used in small pilot and bench plants, pharmaceutical laboratories, test laboratories in research and development department as well as in batch development within the personal care industry. Our direct drives are adaptable, easy to use, require little maintenance and ensure that the desired process outcomes are met. Available with variable speed drives and various mounting, we are certain that we will meet your process solution.
In some applications, the use of a direct drive is just not possible for various mechanical reasons. Sizing the agitator to suit your vessel as well as to ensure that the desired process is achieved, we strive to bring you the best top entry solutions. Tailoring our manufacturing methods, we can keep costs competitive and guarantee the best quality agitator. The majority of these units can be found in applications where a solid suspension is required, or the viscosity of the product is high within the vessels or where the mixing application is arduous. These agitators are available with a selection of various options to ensure that the agitator is customized to suit your specific needs and process requirements, our range of AMX portables are continuously expanding their use in multiple applications.
AFX offers small electric or pneumatic agitators perfectly suited to small instant blending applications in 210-litre drums, where flash mixing and blending is required. These adaptable mixers can be easily adjustment to suit smaller containers by changing the shaft length. Two standard designs are available to suit both open and closed. For closed top drums, agitators are supplied with a dual bladed folding impeller designed to fit through the bung hole on the top of the closed drum.
The agitator comes complete with a threaded bung hole adaptor for mounting and operating purpose. For open top drums, agitators are usually supplied with our fixed three bladed F3 impellers. These agitators are cost effective, efficient, easy to operate and maintain, with a portable design allows the freedom to move from one vessel to another- operating between 300- 3000 rpm. The wetted parts are manufactured from stainless steel and the aluminium housing aids the light-weight design of this agitator. These agitators are the number one solution for for light drum mixing and blending applications.
We offer a range of Intermediate Bulk Container (IBM) mixers (also known as TOTE or flow bin mixers) specifically designed to handle mixing duties within the container. Our mixers handle varying ranges of viscosity, densities and other processing requirements. The main feature is found in a range of folding impellers. These impellers are based on our range of high-efficiency hydrofoils that can fold in to facilitate fitting through the limited container opening, without the need for any modification to the container. The container openings vary from 100mm (4") up to 200mm (8"). Our stainless steel impeller are avilable in varying diameters from 132mm (5.2") up to the 435mm (17.1") which allows us to meet most application requirements.
These impeller are hydrofoil the design offers the efficiencies of a fixed bladed impeller system. Our design results in lower power consumption compared to our competitors while maintaining the same results. This improves the process efficiencies and reduces the mechanical loading on the agitator. This reduced mechanical loading allows the agitator to be light weight and durable.
