The MixPro® line of large top entry flex protected VG style agitators provides a robust, reliable agitation source for high production industrial environments. The unique VG design utilizes the concept of modularized components and also incorporates easily accessible service points for maintenance personnel. The ruggedness of the unit has proven itself in abusive applications, consequently minimizing downtime.


Features & Benefits

-Modularized drive concept allows for quick, easy replacement of major components.
-Robust bearing housing assembly on the flex-protected drive isolates the gear reducer from the dynamic and static loads associated with the wet end of the agitator.
-Wet end attaches to an independent bearing housing assembly utilizing SKF spherical roller bearings with a minimum L-10 life of 100,000 hours.
-Reduction through the v-belt drive and isolation of the dynamic loads enables a much smaller reducer to be sized for the mixer drive head, reducing both downtime and capital costs.
-Non-proprietary reducers allow for reducer manufacturer preferences and competitive parts pricing.
-The reducer is sized to accommodate the overhung load associated with the belt pull and maintains a minimum bearing L-10 life of 100,000 hours.
-The minimum mechanical service factor of the gear reducer is 1.5. The thermal rating of the reducer exceeds its mechanical rating. Larger service factors are available upon request.
-Process flexibility can be achieved through a simple and easy sheave change.
-OSHA shaft and belt guarding provide increased safety.
-Hinged inspection port doors on belt guard allow for easy access and serviceability.
-Readily accessible lubrication lines and inspection points for optimal maintenance serviceability.
