Industrial Agitators

An industrial agitator is a device used to mix or blend substances in a container. They are commonly used in chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing, as well as in food production.

The most common types of industrial agitator is the impeller. Impellers are paddle-shaped devices that are mounted on a shaft. The shaft is connected to a motor, which turns the impeller. As the impeller turns, it creates a vortex in the liquid, which causes the substances in the container to be mixed or blended.

When selecting an industrial agitator, it is important to consider the application in which it will be used. The type of blending that is required will determine the size, shape, and design of the agitator. In addition, the speed at which the agitator is turned will also affect the results.
