HAND-HELD MIXERS

Air-driven mixers feature cast aluminum pistol grip to
comfortably fit the hand.
Used to mix small batches of thin or heavy liquids. Air
control valve allows easy speed adjustment. Low speed
mixing and stalling in heavy liquids with not case over-
heating as with an electric mixer.
Stainless steel multi-blade cage impeller will not damage
container and is ideal for rapid, thorough mixing of paints,
adhesives, dry wall compounds, etc. Two impeller sizes
and three shaft lengths fit most open top containers from
1 to 55 gallons.

Mixer Selection

These mixers have been designed, engineered
and built to provide long life and trouble-free
service in a wide variety of blending/mixing
operations. These mixers are popularly used to:
Selection Chart
The chart below is intended to provide
some basic guidelines for selecting the
proper mixer(s) to provide mild blending
of various viscosity liquids in different size
tanks. This chart is based on an approximate
mix/blend time for two liquids of 30 minutes,
with both liquids already in the tank. Mixing
times will be shortened if one liquid is added
to a second liquid while the mixer is
operating. Powders should always be added
while the mixer is running. This chart also
applies to the suspension of solids with
settling velocities of less than one foot per
minute. For more rapid or vigorous mixing,
use a mixer one or two sizes larger. Dual
propellers are recommended for tanks 1000
gallons and larger at viscosity's of 1000
CPS and higher.
1. Blend liquids.
2. Suspend or dissolve solids
3. Disperse immiscible liquids
4. Disperse small amounts of gases in
    liquids
These portable mixers can be clamp- or base-
mounted on beams, tank walls or othersupports.
Angle of entry may be adjusted to meet specific
mixing requirements. These portable mixers find
use in a variety of dif- ferent industrial applications…waste treatment, water treatment
and batch chemical preparation. These portables
are also ideal for mixing paints, varnishes,
polymers, textile sizes and dyes, pharmaceuticals,
soaps and countless other materials from 1 to over
25,000 CPS viscosity. In the following pages,
we present specifications, dimensions and
dimensional drawings and other information to
help you select the proper mixer for your
application, depending on the size of the batch,
the size of the batch, components and final
product, and other parameters. Our portables are
available at either 350 or 420 RPM (gear-driven)
or 1750 RPM (direct-drive). If you have any
questions or wish to discuss your mixing/blending
application with us, please feel free to call one of
our sales engineers.

Proper Mixer Mounting and Positioning

In most applications involving small
mixing tanks of 1000 gallons or less, the
mixer is clamped to the side of the tank.
Optimum mixing will be achieved when
the mixer is angled from the tank wall,
either off center (figure 1) or on center
(figure 2). Improperly mounting a portable
mixer will greatly lessen mixing
efficiency, cause vibration and could
possibly damage the mixer.
Angling off center is preferred when
good material turnover is required, as in
mixing a slurry. Angling on center is desired
for more gentle mixing and when
vortexing must be minimized.
Larger size tanks may require that a
mixer be mounted directly in the center of
the tank with the shaft vertical (figure 3).
When a mixer is used in this arrangement,
baffles are recommended to prevent the
contents of the tank from turning in the
direction of the mix. If this occurs, mixing
action will be poor.
Such baffling will avoid vortexing and
allow mixing to be as thorough as possible.
These suggests that four baffles
be used, located 90° apart and sized
approximately 1/12 of the tank diameter.
The baffle should not fully extend to the
bottom of the tank and a gap should be
provided between the baffle and the
tank wall.
FIGURE 1 - Angling the portable mixer off center
is the position recommended for rapid turnover
of tank contents and good bottom washing.
FIGURE 2 - On center angling will produce good
mixing with minimum vortexing. Tank contents
turn over thoroughly but gently.
FIGURE 3 - For mixing in larger tanks, the mixer
is often placed vertically on center. In this con-
figuration, baffles are recommended to prevent
the contents of the tank from rotating, avoid
vortexing and achieve good mixing and top-to-
bottom turnover.
