Mixtec Side Entry Mixers are primarily used for pulp homogenization. In this application, special attention is required to ensure the liquid is mixed correctly.
Belt reduced high speed units like the Mixtec Series 5500 (Belt Driven Units) are commonly used to focus the mixing intensely around the fluid injection points and maintain tank homogeneity.
Mechanical seals and packed gland sealing systems are built into the mixer mounting pedestal to prevent leakage.
Shut off devices are another feature of the mixer. Although the Series 5500 is designed for maximum seal life, seal replacement is eventually necessary. The seal shut off device allows for the seals to be isolated from the tank and removed for repair or replacement. This feature reduces downtime and increases productivity.
