Chemical Plant & Engineering addresses the key factors that affect the mixing process and aims to present the customer with the most efficient agitator configuration to achieve the desired outcome.
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.
