Agitator and Mixer are machines used in industries that process products in the chemical, food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries, in a view of :
mixing liquids together
promote the reactions of chemical substances
keeping homogeneous liquid bulk during storage
increase heat transfer (heating or cooling)
They are devices used to stir or mix fluids, liquids specifically. The agitation is achieved by movement of the heterogeneous mass (liquid-solid phase),to the impeller. This is due to mechanical agitators, to the rotation of an impeller. The bulk can be composed of different substances and the aim of the operation is to blend it or to improve the efficiency of a reaction by a better contact between reactive product. Or the bulk is already blended and the aim of agitation is to increase a heat transfer or to maintain particles in suspension to avoid any deposit.
