Air Driven Agitators/Mixers for 10 to 200 Liters tank capacity

The company B.S.C. Teknik  in Thailand supplies air-operated mixers/agitators for pressure tanks and drums of 10, 20, 40 and 200 liter capacity. The agitators have direct drives starting from 0.25 kW (1AM air motor), 0.56 kW (2AM air motor), 1.12 kW (4AM air motor) to 3 kW (6AM air motor). The devices are suitable for low to medium viscosity materials. The company also offers the 2AM air motor agitator with a 1:20 gearbox for high-viscosity paints and materials featuring higher torque and lower speeds between 15-150 RPM.

Low speed avoids material degradation

The speed of the direct-drive agitator mixers can be adjusted in a range of 500-6,000 RPM for the smaller agitators and 300-3,000 RPM for the larger ones, incl. the new 200 liter air powered drum mixer. All sizes are suitable for a maximum operating pressure of 7 bar [100 psi]. As an option the 40 to 200 liter agitators come with a gear-reducer to bring the speed down to 15-150 RPM. This low speed reduces material degradation to a minimum and improves quality of the stirred material. Different agitator designs are available like manual type (colloquially also called quick mixer), pale mounted, bung, C-clamp for rim mounting or in connection with a pressure tank/pressure pot. Wide, full-width impellers (blades/propellers) in different designs provide thoroughly mixing of the material, minimizing leftover sediment at the bottom of the pressure tank or drum. Air motors from 0.25 kW to 3 kW are employed, which are also available separately.

Air operated agitators for a wide range of applications

Beside air operated agitators, also electric and hydraulic driven agitators are available in the market. Especially in the field of paints, mainly air operated agitators are used due to safety, cost reasons and easy maintenance. Agitators are typically used in the wood industry, metal fabrication, automotive and, of course, painting.
