Bottom Entry Agitator: Series 500
Mixquip’s range of Series 500 low shear base entry agitators are designed to fit into the bottom or base of a mixing vessel. These high shear mixers are typically used in conjunction with a slow speed anchor stirrer or scraper unit for high viscosity products. The Mixquip® base entry agitator mixer gives high shear homogenization while the stirrer/scraper distributes the homogenized output uniformly through the vessel. This is ideal for high viscosity cosmetic, pharmaceutical and food products. Base Entry mixers can also be used by themselves on low viscosity products and to wet out powders.
- Suspends Sediments
Base Entry Agitators are ideal for mixing products where solids or higher SG liquids settle in the bottom of the tank. Mixquip Series 500 Agitators provide a powerful axial flow up through the tank contents.
- Ease of access
Series 500 Agitators provide floor level access, ideal for servicing.
Lower the costs of the process when mixing a tank 1/2 or 1/3 full as a short shaft means a lower cost than Top Entry Mixers.
- Hygienic Design
CIP design, simple and easy to clean the agitator. All wetted parts are in 316 stainless steel.
- Detailed Construction
Series 500 base entry mixers are constructed from a wide variety of special alloy materials which include modular investment castings to suit many and varied applications and individual process environments.
- Modular Design
From concept through to manufacture, allowing you to achieve the ideal mixing solution for optimum performance and providing maximum return on investment.
Australian made quality mixers that can be used to blend and mix any liquids of viscosities up 15,000 cPs. Mixquip Base Entry agitators are available in multiple configurations including right-angled gearbox and inline with both hygienic mechanical seals and or water flush seals.
- Direct Drive
High-speed direct drive mixer suitable for low viscosity fluids.
- Gear Drive
Slow-speed gear drive mixer suitable for all range of viscosities.
- Variable Speed
Both direct drive and gear drive units are available with variable speed drives for 240V, single phase and 415V, three phase.
Hygienic Mechanical Seals or Water Flush Seals.
- Choice of Impeller Design
Range of impellor designs ensure your exact requirements can be met.
- Flameproof Option
Enables easy mixing of liquids in hazardous and volatile areas.
- Pneumatic Motor
Converting compressed air energy into mechanical work, these motors are very flexible as the speed can be adjusted by varying the air supply volume relative to your needs.
These state-of-the-art agitators achieve the optimum mixing conditions in open or closed top Vessels. Blending liquids and powders, suspensions, cold stabilising, emulsifications plus many other duties which are achievable by drawing on know-how and unique impeller designs and sealing solutions for base entry agitators.
