AGITATORS

We are an agitator manufacturer & exporter in India. we are known as top agitators manufacturers and exporter in mumbai. Use Portable Stirrers and Agitators for mixing or Stirring the material into various tanks of different capacities. The stirrer may consist of a propeller, anchor, paddle, turbine, and more. They are fitted on SS stand with manual or pneumatic or hydraulic lifting and lowering systems.

we offers mixing systems for Stainless and Alloy Steel Reactors. Our team of highly trained engineers will design an optimal mixing solution for your specific mixing requirement. Using a fluid mixing design software to simulate the performance of your existing agitator system, we can recommend a superior agitator design that will optimize your mixing by reducing batch time and power consumption and improving product quality.

a wide range of high-efficiency agitators to the Pharmaceutical, Agrochemical, Specialty Chemicals, Minerals & Metals, Paints & Inks, Pharma & Biotech, Power Generation, Food & Beverage, Paper & Pulp, and Petrochemical & Refineries industries. We design and manufacture Mixing systems for various applications:

  • Blending/Heat Transfer
  • Suspension
  • Emulsification
  • High Viscosity Blending
  • Gas Dispersion

agitators meaning –

An Agitator is a machine used in a tank for mixing various process media. Media include all liquid types, gases & solids (such as salts, powders, granules, etc.). In summary, it works by rotating an impeller to impart energy to the media, which interact and mix. The components of an agitator, in general, are the motor & gearbox, shaft & impellers selected for the duty. Industrial agitators are machines used in industries that process products in the chemical, food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic industries, given:

  • mixing liquids together
  • promote the reactions of chemical substances
  • keeping homogeneous liquid bulk during storage
  • increase heat transfer (heating or cooling)

The tank fits into the stand, which is a C type base. Then the material inside is stirred and mixing into the tank by the agitator.

Based on the material to be stirred and tank ability, The capacity of the agitators mixer is selected. In propeller type stirrers, the motor is mounted directly on the stand. The agitator shaft is coupled directly to the motor. The motor and stirrer rpm will be approx. 960 rpm or 1440 rpm an Anchor/paddle type agitator. The plate on the stand allows you to fix the motor quickly into the gearbox. The Heavy-duty stand take loads and balance the motor with the gearbox. The anchor/ paddle agitator is mounted on the gearbox shaft directly through flange coupling.

Here, the tank/vessel is brought below the stand, and the agitator is

lowered into the vessel for stirring. In anchor type stirrers/agitators, it is difficult to have a manual lowering and lifting system for high Hp motors. Hence pneumatic or hydraulic lifting and lowering systems are preferred.

We manufacture all kinds of StirrersStirrers and supply agitator assembly separately or complete with motor, gearbox, etc., in assembled condition.

We also manufacture tanks and vessels and can supply you with complete Agitated Vessels, Pressure vesselsPressure vessels, etc., of any type and capacity.

There are different agitators types

  1. Propeller type agitators
  2. Turbine Agitators
  3. Pitched Turbine Agitators
  4. Anchor type agitator
  5. Paddle type agitator
  6. Disperser / Cowl type agitator
  7. High-Speed Homogeniser / Emulsifier
  8. Plow type agitator
  9. Ribbon type agitator

We have a wide range of High-efficiency industrial agitator manufacturer and exporter to the Pharmaceutical, Agro-chemical, Specialty Chemicals, Biotech, Paints, Paper & Pulp industries.

We design and manufacture Mixing systems for various applications:

  • Blending/Heat Transfer
  • Suspension
  • Emulsification
  • High Viscosity Blending
  • Gas Dispersion

Construction And Working Principle of An Agitator:

An Agitator is generally made up of three main components – a shaft with impellers, a mechanical seal, and a motor with a gearbox option for lower RPM duties.

The agitator is mounted onto the vessel or via a supporting bridge in the water industry. The mechanical seal has several options depending on the duty – single/double mechanical seal, dry or wet mechanical seal, gas lift-off mechanical seal related to the duty involved.

An agitator shaft is connected to the drive unit (motor & gearbox) and where the impellers used for the mixing are welded or bolted onto. There are options for magnetic driven units where there is a hermetic seal as opposed to mechanical.

Several different Agitators used in Pharmaceutical Industries are:

  • Mechanical agitators (rotating)
  • Static agitators (pipe fitted with baffles)
  • Rotating tank agitators (like concrete mixer)
  • Agitator mixer paddle type
  • Agitators working with a pump blasting liquid

The agitator’s choice depends on the phase that needs to be mixed (one or several phases): Liquids only, liquid and solid, liquid and gas, or liquid with solids and gas. Depending on the type of phase and viscosity of the bulk, the agitator can be named mixer, kneader, dough mixer, amongst others. The agitators use in liquids can be placed on top of the tank in a vertical position, or horizontally (on the side of the tank), or less common, the agitator is located on the bottom of the tank.

Agitators can be simplified into Bottom Entry Agitator, Side Entry Agitator, and Top entry Agitator depending on the application’s duty & scale to be mixed.

90% of Agitators are a Top Entry Agitator in API / Chemical / Water industries. A Top Entry Agitator’s main advantages are handling a more considerable variance in viscosities and specific gravities and that the mechanical seal is not in the liquid.

The remaining 10% include Bottom Entry Agitator, Side Entry Agitator, and Bottom Entry Mag Drive Agitator. Milk silos & huge holding tanks use side entry agitators not necessarily for mixing but also for keeping the process media moving and keeping the milk cool.

 

 

  • Reduction in Power Consumption without compromising the mixing requirement.
  • Improvement in mixing performance like Heat Transfer and Mass Transfer.
  • Transfer, Blending or Solid Suspension, Blend time.
  • Small and compact systems.
  • Easy Maintenance.
