Drum-Mates® Mixers and Accessories

High Efficiency, Multi-Purpose Mixers


These unique, quick setup mixers or dispersers are air-operated and explosion proof (with MX-0680 grounding kit installed). They provide a lower operating cost than conventional drum dispersers and fit any drum sizes or types with standard 2” bung holes with good clearance. The multiple level, Auto-Open-Close, SwingWing™ turbine impellers are effective at any RPM and can be locked down or removed, offering a wide range of mixing patterns.

The dispersers virtually eliminate cavitation and are excellent at unifying layered or sedimented solutions with low impact, eddy wave stirring up to a high shear, homogenizing effect. Mixer drives are supplied in Hand, Rim, Bung and Tank Mount models with 3/4 to 4 HP direct or geared air or electric drives. A suitably powered T-grip electric drill can also be used for nonflammable tasks.

  • Rapid reconditioning of separated or stratified liquids into a uniform compound.
  • Quick break up and dispersal of bottom sediments into a smooth, homogeneous blend.
  • Slow eddy wave stirring of sensitive materials to prevent foaming, oxidation, shear, etc.
  • In-drum mixing for manufacturing of liquid-liquid or powder-liquid ingredients.
  • High shear, high agitation blending for a homogenizing effect.
  • Continuous agitation to maintain suspensions while emptying the drum.
