316 SS. The axial flow turbine is a classic medium shear impeller. Very effective in both low viscosity and high, this axial turbine blade impeller allows a mixer to the break up agglomeration and impart solids effectively. The axial turbine blade will draw more power per volume than the propellers or hydrofoils as motor power is converted to shear energy. Mixer Direct's Lab Axial Flow Turbine features a 1.5" blade, a 3/8 bore, and a hub with set screw attachment for easy blade installment.
The Radial flow turbine creates a radial flow pattern moving away from the impeller, towards the sides of the vessel. The flow of this stainless-steel radial blade impacts the side and moves in either an upward or downward direction to fill the top and bottom of the impeller and be ejected once more. Some applications benefit greatly from this type of action, namely gas dispersion. Radial flow turbines have a high horsepower draw relative to axial flow turbines and other axial flow impellers.Mixer Direct's Lab Radial Flow Turbine features a 1.5" blade, a 3/8" bore, and a hub with set screw attachment for easy blade installment.
