Agitators are used in chemical, food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries process to:

  • Mix liquids together
  • Promote the reactions of chemical substances
  • Keep homogeneous liquid bulk during storage
  • Increase heat transfer (heating or cooling)

The choice of the agitator depends on the phase that needs to be mixed (one or several phases). Agitators can be placed on the top of the tank on vertical position, or horizontally (on the side of the tank) or less common, agitator is located at the bottom of the tank.
