No downtime and less need for maintenance as mixer spec rises

Posted: Thursday 4th June 2009

The days of installing the lightest and cheapest design of mixer are rapidly becoming a thing of the past, according to Chemineer.

In what has long been regarded as a ‘simple application’, Chemineer claim that inadequate consideration has been given to the effects of rag and cross-flow, which inevitably result in time-consuming and costly bearing failures.

“A growing number of water companies and their contractors have seen just how counter-productive and economically damaging it has been to install cheaper Top-Entry mixers, said Chemineer’s Sales Manager, Neil Cathie.

“By making a proper, realistic allowance for cross-flow and ragging, end-users can bring about a massive cost and logistical improvement to their maintenance programmes”, he added.

Cathie also pointed to the upswing in demand for mixers with dry-well seals, which have significant benefits over lip seals requiring regular maintenance because of leaking oil.
