The agitation systems with lifting column consist of an agitator unit with the corresponding support arm, and a lifting column incorporating the hydraulic lifting system. The systems are mounted on a support base.
The lifting column is designed to accommodate a standard INOXPA agitator or other standard agitators with a maximum flange size of Ø250 mm.
This system allows exchanging the agitator as a function of the required mixture, avoiding the need for a different agitator for every tank and therefore optimizing production costs.
All common agitator types can be used, e.g. Cowles, mixer, anchor, propeller, blade, etc.
Depending on the model, the tank is moved to the agitator unit to carry out the mixing or conversely, the agitator unit is moved to the tank.
The lifting system is actuated and the agitator is lifted, allowing the tank to be correctly positioned and centred. To prevent the agitator or the tank from moving during the mixing process, they are secured in position by means of a manual or pneumatic restraint system. The agitator is lowered and is introduced into the tank. The agitator is put into operation using the control panel. When the mixing is complete, the agitator is withdrawn from the tank and released from the restraint system.
