The method of setting up the agitator and the location of the agitator have a great influence on the agitating efficiency, which is as important as selecting the agitator. As the flow of the mixing liquid can significantly change according to the position and the installation angle, it is desirable to install the product after consulting with the person in charge to increase the mixing efficiency and to avoid unnecessary power loss.
Selection of a mixer suitable for the application requires a lot of experience and knowledge, and a proper mixer can be selected only after checking various factors such as the purpose of agitation, the physical properties (viscosity ratio), agitation conditions, stirring time, and the surroundings. When selecting a mixer, determine the mixing capacity per unit horsepower according to the table below, select the impeller size, number of revolutions, blade shape, and installation position, and then design the shaft diameter by calculating the strength of the mixer shaft. As mentioned above, the ideal mixer can be selected considering the following points.
