Impellers

The purpose of mixing impellers is to transfer the energy provided by the motor to the product in the most efficient way in order to produce the desired effect in the least amount of time. Also called agitator blades, each mixing impeller type converts the energy given to it in a different way. A hydrofoil converts most of the energy into motion of the product and very little into shear. A three bladed propeller will convert more of the energy into shear than the hydrofoil but still mostly produces motion.

The axial flow turbines and radial flow turbines devote a higher ratio to shear and a dispersion blade is almost completely devoted to shear production. Mechanical considerations may also affect the agitator blade selection as in the case of a folding impeller being utilized to fit into a tank through a small aperture.

MixerDirect has recently released MixerGenius v2.1, proprietary software developed to allow our sales engineers to quickly get to an engineered solution for your application. Agitator blade sizing can be quickly accomplished while you are on the phone for almost any of the types of impellers for sale that we carry.

36 inch high flow dispersion blade with 5/8 inch bore

High Flow Dispersion Blade, 36in Dia, 5/8in CH

HFD360062 $1,025

Dispersion Blades rotate at high RPMs to facilitate the quick impartation of solids at a fine grind. The liquid contacts the blade and moves outward to to flow over the teeth breaking the agglomerations into increasing smaller particles. Most Dispersion blades have issues related to sufficient fluid motion to get a batch to complete uniformity. Mixer Direct addresses that problem with the HFD line. Each blade has axial flow blades integrated into the geometry of the blade, providing extra flow for higher viscosity applications. Typically used in paints and inks, they are now being used in a variety of industries for increased efficiency.

Ultra Shear Dispersion Blades rotate at high RPMs to facilitate the quick impartation of solids at a fine grind. The liquid contacts the blade and moves outward to to flow over the teeth breaking the agglomerations into increasing smaller particles. The Ultra Shear Blade includes extra surface area at the blade tip to facilitate even higher levels of shear in the product. This leads to even faster throughput! Typically used in paints and inks, they are now being used in a variety of industries for increased efficiency.

36 inch radial flow turbine with 2 inch bore

Radial Flow Turbine, 36" Diameter, 2" Bore

RFTL36200 $1,550

The Radial flow turbine crates a radial flow pattern moving away from the impeller, towards the sides of the vessel.
