Agitators are used in a variety of industries which utilize mixing tanks as part of their process. A brief list of products made using an agitator are ice cream, yogurt, other dairy products, sauces, fruit drinks, pet foods, pharmaceutical compounds, as well as numerous other applications. They generally will have a drive and gearbox which is mounted on top of a tank, or a framework mounted above a basin.
A long shaft extends down into the mixing tank and has a variety of blades, or impellers, that mix up or agitate the ingredients. We have installed agitators in the food and beverage industry, wastewater treatment facilities, and for the building products industry.
