Correct agitator mounting is critical to ensure the equipment functions efficiently and is correctly positioned in the tank to achieve the desired outcome.
Chemical Plant & Engineering addresses the key factors that affect the mixing process and aims to present the customer with the most efficient agitator configuration.
Top Entry Agitator Mounting – Centre Mounted
For top entry centre mounted agitators it is recommended that the tank has four (4) off baffles fitted to it, each baffle being D/12 wide, D/72 off the wall, and extending the whole height of the tank (where D is the tank diameter).
Top Entry Agitator Mounting – Off Centre
For top entry off-centre mounted agitators it is recommended that the agitator be placed D/6 off centre (where D is the tank diameter) with no baffles.
