At ystral we name our machines “mixer” instead of agitator or stirrer since we want to point out the significant technical difference between mixing and moving media. Conventional agitators and stirrers create a horizontal rotation of the liquid. The inertia of the rotating mass hinders the vertical mass exchange. You can agitate for hours but the liquid is still not yet homogeneous.
Of course, the key question is whether an old agitator should be replaced because it is already payed off since years and it will last another twenty years. This is the same story with lots of “proven” technologies in process engineering.
Conventional proven routines are often slow and inefficient. If you want to speed up your process and save resources, you should carry on reading our proposals. Process time, energy, raw materials, resources, product quality, safety, flexibility and integration into existing plants – these are areas of mixing process potential that we have identified in an analysis of our orders.
Learn how your mixing processes can also be optimised in our 22-page whitepaper.
