The engineering of Agitation. Since 2004.

In food industry, agitators are required for use in various processes.

These types of agitators are manufactured in food-grade stainless steel EN (10088).

For example, agitators are required for feeding:

  • Wine storage tanks.
  • Chocolate.
  • Preparation of all types of sauces and creams.
  • Mixture of drinks, juices and alcohols.
  • Oils.
  • All types of dairy products: milk, yoghurt, cheese, butter...
  • Beer.

Consequently, achieving the required mixing levels depends on the physico-chemical characteristics of the components.

In addition to their compatibility, and the volumes to be mixed.

Therefore, in order to mix different components it is necessary to have interprenetation of the particles that occupy the different zones of the volumes to be mixed.
In addition, the differences of proportions in different samples taken with a certain criterion, give without doubt, a characteristic of the homogeneity of the mixture.

In short, agitators are necessary to generate contacts between particles.

As a result they can lead to a chemical combination or a change of state.

The necessary criteria for the good achievement of the chemical reaction will determine the needs to be covered by the agitation.

These criteria are as broad and different as the chemical processes themselves.

To summarize, these are the data needed to design any agitator.

First, know the tank. That is, its capacity, shape, bottom, height of the tank and that occupied by the liquid, material,...

Second, the products to be mixed. For example, with what objective, its density, viscosity, temperature,...

As a result, we will have the most suitable agitator for the process being carried out.
