Mixquip Develops Energy-Efficient Clamp-On Mixers

Thursday, September 02, 2010 by Teralba Industries

In the face of a universal energy-conscious society, and ever-increasing energy costs, many Australian and New Zealand manufacturers and service providers are utilising the Australian-made, energy-efficient Mixquip agitators and stirrers for the effective mixing and blending of quality products and processing.

In answer to these current demands in numerous industries, including the chemical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and wastewater industries, Mixquip (a division of Teralba Industries) has now developed a highly energy-efficient clamp-on mixer with a low shear rate which in turn reduces the power consumption by returning 65% more agitation per kilowatt against other conventional agitator units. Through over 30 years of experience, combined with extensive research, Mixquip has achieved yet another quality product to add to its range of mixing equipment.

These versatile Australian-made mixers can be used to blend and mix any liquids of viscosities up to 15,000cPs, and can be simply fitted to all open-top tanks of capacities up to 8,000l and relocated to additional vessels.

Mixquip's energy-efficient range of clamp-on agitators/stirrers have stainless-steel wetted parts and have been successfully installed into many and various applications, including food, dairy, meat, beverage, wines, soft drink and juice processors.
