CM6 Gas Dispersion Impeller

The CM6 impeller is designed and manufactured to provide optimum gas dispersion in a variety of applications.

The CM6 is not only limited to gas dispersion applications but also heavy duty solids suspension where impeller wear is a limiting factor.

Recommended applications for this agitator type include fermentation, mineral sands aeration, gold CIP leaching, nickel hydrogen reduction and pressure oxidation process in autoclaves.

Product range and impeller configurations vary depending on process and application and can include a variety of drive, seal and mounting options.

Typical fluid agitation applications include:

Portable Agitators

Portable agitators are used for smaller applications where the flexibility of a clamp on arrangement is required. They are available in a number of configurations depending on customer requirements.

Side and  Bottom Entry Agitators

Our range of high efficiency, side entry agitators provide a very flexible and cost effective method of agitating larger tanks. CPE agitators are used extensively in the wine industry to reduce power consumption and maximise efficiency.  CPE also have an extensive range of sanitary agitators for dairy applications.

In addition, for applications where the tank size or product type requires the mechanical seal to be replaced in situ whilst the tank is full, CPE can offer a side entry agitator which has a retractable shaft mechanism.

High Shear Mixing

High shear mixer head
