Alfa Laval’s agitators have a flexible, modular design and enable tailoring a mixing solution to the exact requirements. The agitator range includes top-mounted units, with or without bottom support, as well as bottom or side-mounted units. Modularity lend itself to ease of installation and maintenance, and superior design ensures quality, performance and economy. The purpose-built agitators have smooth surfaces that promote optimal flow.
Energy Efficient Design
Our EnSaFoil impellers, as well as our specially developed EnSaFerm impellers for fermentation use, reduce energy consumption and the absorption of heat by your product. Based on extensive fluid dynamic studies, their unique shape makes them up to 400% more efficient than impellers with a standard pitch. Besides minimizing energy loss, our impellers operate at reduced speeds without reducing pumping capacity. Compared to agitators with conventional impellers, they thereby lower agitator power consumption by up 80%.
Modular and Hygienic
Alfa Laval agitators ensure excellent levels of hygiene for a wide range of blending and mixing duties in processing tanks. Modular design using hygienic materials with smooth surfaces provides great flexibility to tailor agitator systems to meet specific tank and process requirements, including EHEDG, USDA, FDA and 3-A standards.
Low wear and minimal maintenance are hallmarks of Alfa Laval agitators. This translates into higher productivity due to reduced downtime. No dismantling or entry into the tank, for instance, is required for parts replacement of long-life seals and bearings. This saves both time and money.
Four different Alfa Laval agitator models for top-, bottom- and side-mounting are available for installation in pressurized and non-pressurized tanks. Sterile/aseptic and ATEX-certified versions are available upon request.
ALTB – Our top mounted agitator with bottom support ALTB offers the same solutions as the ALT but with higher flexibility in mechanical design.
ALT, ALS and ALB– These range of agitators can be sized for several applications for both atmospheric and pressurised tanks. Configuration for use in sterile/aseptic applications is also possible.
