The Chemineer MR Agitator is well-suited for a variety of mixing applications in the chemical, biodiesel/ethanol, pharmaceutical, water and general fluid processing industries. The agitators can be mounted to support beams or similar structures for open tank operation or to pedestals, plates or flanges for closed tank operation. They each feature a cast iron housing with double lip seal to effectively contain lubricants and a swing out mechanical seal change design, which minimizes both maintenance labor and downtime. A helical gear design and a larger output shaft straightened to exact tolerances with high capacity tapered roller bearings help eliminate deflection and excessive vibration enabling a minimum 50,000 hour L10 bearing life. The agitators comply with AGMA, OSHA, ANSI, IEC, DIN, EU and ATEX standards and requirements.
