WHAT IS A STIRRER?
A stirrer is an industrial machine mounted on a container, used for mixing one or more products, using at least one liquid.
According to its definition, a stirrer can be used to:
- Mix and homogenize a number of products
- Hold solid elements contained in liquids in suspension
- Modify the consistency of a thixotropic product (product whose viscosity changes when stirred)
- Optimize the heat exchange efficiency of a mixture in a vessel
- Dissolve gas in a liquid
- Dissolve powder in a liquid
A stirrer consists of:
- A drive head (motor, gearbox, guide shaft, sealing)
- A drive shaft (located in the stirrer head)
- A stirrer shaft (in one or more pieces)
- Mixing blade(s)
