VAKUMIX – Circulation Agitator (Patent No. EP 0760 254 B1)
Circulation Agitators are mounted at the lowest point of the vessel bottom
of the VAKUMIX – Premix Vessels ABW (water), ABF (fat) and ABS
The agitators are used for mixing of liquids or suspensions as well as for
melting oils, fats and waxes for a subsequent emulsion production.
The circulation agitator has two main functions:
Mixing in the vessel, with the advantage of the production of a high vessel
wall flows at the heating and cooling surfaces of the processing vessel at the
whole vessel circumference. Thus, a good heat transition to the product is
guaranteed. Furthermore, there is the advantage of short heating and cooling
By means of the high edge flow, the whole vessel content is evenly mixed.
Thus, an even distribution of the substances to be mixed is guaranteed.
Mixing of smallest amounts, e.g. 1/20 of the useful volume of the vessel.
Avoiding of vortex formation in the vessel by means of the suction
behaviour of the circulation agitator.
By means of the circulation agitator, the vessel can be emptied completely.
