What are Side Entry Agitators?

Side entry agitators are recommended to conduct mixing in large tanks as it will take a long time, if ever, for a top entry agitator to provide homogeneous mix.

Side entry agitators are ideal for applications such as blending and solid suspension like in storage tanks where the mixture needs to be kept uniform before packaging, or when there is a separation unit, like centrifuge, downstream of the tank.

Our side entry agitators are also offered in full sanitary design and in compliance with the stringent requirements of the food and dairy industry.

Mounting a Side Entry Agitator

In order to maintain a consistent product blend, or to create process change, the application of external force creating fluid movement is required. In very large tanks utilisation of side entry agitation is the only practical solution.

However, the science applied to determine the number, location, orientation, degree of agitation necessary, and impeller type requires careful consideration of the magnitude and characteristics of the process task. An understanding of impeller behaviour and flow patterns is essential in making the right selection.
