The main function for this type of equipment is “agitation”, which is critical in the pharmaceutical industry.

All products are manufactured to international specifications including ASME and DIN28159.

Types of agitation equipment:-

Anchor type

An anchor agitator consists of a shaft and an anchored propeller that can be mounted centrally or at an angle.

It is mainly used in reactors and predominantly in the Standard Group AE type.anchor agitator

Paddle type

A paddle agitator is a key type, where the blades reach the tank wall.

A paddle agitator is used where a uniform laminar fluid is required as it initiates heavy-duty mixing which proves to be an excellent device for slower speeds.

It is a relatively simple structure, thus making the equipment easy to manage.Impeller agitator

Impeller type

An impeller agitator is designed to optimize in-tank mixing while remaining reliable and keeping maintenance requirements to a minimum.

This type of agitator maximises the efficiency of any mixing process and can be used in either batch or continuous blending applications and uses technology that allows the suspension or mass transfer applications.

The Standard Glass Lining Technology CE-Reactor is supplied with an Impeller-Type design as standard.
