For Drums &Tanks

308 Series Mixers

top
Direct Drive Air-Operated Mixers

The features described herein apply to all mixers on this page. The Model 308 55 gal. direct drive air operated drum lid mixer for liquids can be furnished with plain steel or Stainless Steel drum cover containing mounting holes - or less cover, for mounting on tank top. It is designed so only mixer shaft penetrates cover, thereby preventing abrasive material from entering shaft seal of motor - the most common cause of motor failure or oil contamination. Nylon bushing on cover prevents damage to shaft at entrance hole.

The Model 308 motor will develop over 1-1/2 hp at 2000 rpm. Speeds may be varied from 0 to 2000 rpm by a turn of the hand wheel on the powerhead. Speed and horsepower are relative to the air line pressure and volume. Impeller, shaft and coupling are of type 304 Stainless Steel. The Fawcett Mixed Flow self-centering satin finish Impeller furnished as standard is 6" in dia. with high lift pitch. It is designed to quickly force settled material into suspension with a minimum of vortex and swirl.

400 Series Mixers
  PM-408     PMC-408D

The features described here apply to all five of the 400 Series Mixers listed. The Model 104 Powerhead will develop over 3 hp at 2700 rpm. Speeds may be varied from 0 to 2700 rpm by a turn of the air control valve. Speed and horsepower are relative to air line pressure and volume (see performance graphs).

The Mixed Flow impellers, sleeve couplings, and shafts are of type 304 stainless steel. The impellers are a patented design, tried and proven superior for mixing liquids. They are easy to clean, light weight, and self-centering, making it possible to use smaller diameter shafts with no vibration. This means substantial reduction in overall weight - an important consideration affecting operator fatigue.

Mixed Flow Impeller

top
Mixed Flow Impeller

For safe and efficient liquid mixing the Mixed Flow Impeller embodies patented features obtainable in no other stirring device. A circular, axial and radial turbulence is created by the pitch of blades giving excellent shear, forcing solids off the bottom with minimum swirl and vortex, and maintaining ideal distribution of suspended material. Flow is primarily down.

When two or more impellers are employed on the same shaft in high viscosity material, identical pitch will give superior results rather than reverse pitch which must be used with cast propellers for the same purpose. In the majority of applications it is unnecessary to use baffles to facilitate mixing. This impeller also works equally well when positioned vertically or at any angle.

The light weight of the MIXED FLOW IMPELLER in comparison to cast propellers allows use of smaller diameter shafts, reduces vibration to a minimum and provides a definite safety factor at higher speeds. The flowing design and pitch of blades creates a self-centering action, and if walls of container are accidentally contacted during mixing operation, shock and the possibility of damage to impeller or container is reduced to a minimum.

Please note that the above advantages are obtainable without the addition of hard to clean centering rings or vertical fins. Thorough mixing without the addition of air can be obtained by reducing the speed when using the regular pitch impeller. Aeration, shear and violent agitation can be obtained with the high lift pitch impeller running at higher speeds, control of which is handled by a simple needle valve. As a rule, use REGULAR PITCH for low to medium viscosity liquids and HIGH LIFT for medium to high viscosity liquids.

Paddle Shaft Assembly

These stirring devices are for use with our gear driven laboratory powerheads to mix highly viscous materials in quantities up to two gallons in open or closed containers. They are self-balancing, easy to clean, safe, and practically indestructible. The paddles are permanently mounted to the center of the shaft allowing higher speeds with no danger of vibration or breakage. They can be used in conjunction with packing gland or stuffing box.
