Mixer Direct’s +1000 gallon side entry agitators offer efficient mixing for large scale mixing processes. Side entry mixers are typically used in several applications such as edible oils, chemical processing, water treatment, asphalt, crude oil, gasoline, and pulp and paper. They can be easily installed anywhere along the side of the mixing tank/vessel. It's not practical to use a top-entry mixer with a larger/more elongate shaft in large-scale mixing applications because of the cost. Still, the +1000 gallon side entry mixers' versatility allows for many more placement options to attach the side entry mixer to the tank/vessel at a much more economical price.
All side entry mixers come with a standard TEFC electric motor with a 5:1 turndown rating. There's also an explosion-proof motor and gearbox option available for any side entry mixer. Our gearbox uses a premium helical drive with gear reductions ranging from 4:1 to 134:1, resulting in a range of speeds from 13 to 438 RPM.
To achieve the highest efficiencies possible, we designed our impeller called a high-efficiency fluid foil. This impeller has a very high thrust to power ratio giving this side entry mixer maximum flow efficiency. Depending on the tank's size, these +1000 gallon side entry agitators can be combined to increase the flow of a larger tank exponentially.
