Introduction of Industrial Agitator

The industrial agitator is a device used in industrial production to mix and stir chemicals or other substances inside a reactor vessel. It typically consists of an electric motor, a stirring shaft, and stirring blades.

The main function of an industrial agitator is to mix the reactants uniformly, promoting chemical reactions or maintaining a homogeneous suspension of the materials. The agitator rotates the stirring shaft, causing the stirring blades to generate stirring and shearing forces within the reactor vessel, thus achieving a thorough mixing of the reactants.

Industrial tank agitators often come with various types of stirring blades, such as paddle blades, helical blades, anchor blades, etc., which are chosen based on the specific reaction process and material characteristics. The stirrer can also be speed-controlled as needed to regulate the stirring speed and intensity.

Industrial tank agitators find wide applications in industries such as chemical, pharmaceutical, food, and petroleum, for the production of various chemicals, drugs, food items, and liquid products. They play a vital role in accelerating reaction rates, improving product quality, and maintaining a uniform suspension state.

Shape of Industrial Agitator Impeller

The industrial agitator can have several types of impeller blade shapes, including:

Straight Blade

The impeller blade is flat and straight, with 1-8 blades. It is suitable for mixing, heat transfer, and chemical reactions in low-viscosity liquids.

Open Turbine Blade

The impeller blade is fan-shaped, with 2-4 blades. It is suitable for mixing, heat transfer, and chemical reactions in medium-viscosity liquids.

Propeller Blade

The impeller blade has three blades arranged in a helical shape. It is suitable for mixing, heat transfer, and chemical reactions in low-viscosity liquids.

Disc Turbine Blade

The impeller blade is disc-shaped, with 4-8 blades. It is suitable for mixing, heat transfer, and chemical reactions in medium-viscosity liquids.

Anchor Blade

The impeller blade has an anchor shape, with 2-4 blades. It is suitable for mixing, heat transfer, and chemical reactions in high-viscosity liquids.

Ribbon Blade

The impeller blade is ribbon-shaped, with 1-4 blades. It is suitable for mixing, heat transfer, and chemical reactions in high-viscosity liquids.

Helical Blade

The impeller blade is helical-shaped, with 1-4 blades. It is suitable for mixing, heat transfer, and chemical reactions in high-viscosity liquids.

In general, the selection of impeller blade shape depends on the viscosity of the liquid being handled. For low-viscosity liquids, the suitable blade shapes are straight blade, open turbine blade, and propeller blade. For medium-viscosity liquids, the suitable blade shapes are disc turbine blade, anchor blade, ribbon blade, and helical blade. For high-viscosity liquids, the suitable blade shapes are anchor blade, ribbon blade, and helical blade.

In practical applications, the choice of impeller blade shape also depends on factors such as the stirring purpose, size of the stirrer, and properties of the materials being processed.

Installation Types of Industrial Agitator

side entry industrial agitator | SeFluid

The industrial agitator can be installed in three different ways: top-mounted installation, side-mounted installation, and bottom-mounted installation. Here is a detailed explanation of each form, including the differences, advantages, and the corresponding types of fluids:

Top-mounted installation

Difference

The agitator’s motor and shaft are installed on the top of the reactor and extend into the reaction liquid.

Advantages

Convenient operation with relatively easy maintenance and cleaning.

The installation position of the agitator does not occupy the effective volume of the reactor, allowing for better utilization of the tank capacity.

Suitable fluid types

Suitable for various fluids, ranging from low to high viscosity liquids.

Side-mounted installation

Difference

The agitator’s motor and shaft are installed on the side of the reactor and extend into the reaction liquid.

Advantages

The position of the stirrer provides more uniform mixing throughout the reactor.

For high-viscosity fluids, side-mounted installation can provide better fluid flow and mixing effects.

Suitable fluid types

Suitable for medium to high viscosity liquids.

Bottom-mounted installation

Difference

The agitator’s motor and shaft are installed at the bottom of the reactor and extend into the reaction liquid.

Advantages

For reactants with high concentration suspensions or solid particles, bottom-mounted installation can provide better suspension and mixing effects.

Avoiding dead zones at the bottom of the reactor helps improve reaction efficiency and uniformity.

Suitable fluid types

Suitable for liquids containing suspensions, high-concentration solid particles, or substances prone to settling.

It is important to note that the specific choice of installation form depends on the requirements of the reaction process, the characteristics of the materials, and the design of the tank or reactor. When selecting an installation form, factors such as stirring performance, operational convenience, and maintenance requirements should be taken into consideration.
