Simple Steps in Selecting a Mixer
Portable Mixers are used for drums, totes, or small mixing tanks of 1000 gallons or less. The mixer is clamped to the side of the tank. Optimum mixing will be achieved when the mixer is angled from the tank wall, either off-center (Figure 1) or on-center (Figure 2). Properly mounting a portable mixer will greatly increase mixing efficiency, eliminate vibration and improve mixer service-life. When sizing a portable mixer, it is essential to consider these application details: liquid viscosity and chemistry, tank volume and configuration, mounting design and power requirements.
