Mixing Propeller Varieties and their uses

Mixing propellers, also called impellers, are designed for specific mixing capabilities within mixing vessels. Different industries utilize different kinds of propellers for their unique mixing requirements.

Types of Mixing Propellers

  • Airfoil: Airfoil propellers are most often used in the form of high-efficiency fans. They excel in circulating gasses within an environment or promoting airflow and the dispersion or removal of gasses in an environment. Airfoil impellers have very low shear and move efficiently. 
  • Pitch Blade: Pitch blade propellers are ideal for mixing viscous substances and for applications requiring even circulation and higher shearing than an Airfoil propeller offers. 
  • Radial Blade: A radial blade propeller offers the highest level of shear. The vertical blades of the propeller excel at keeping mixtures continually agitated and are often utilized if agitation at the bottom of a tank is required. 
  • Marine-type: Marine-type propellers mimic the appearance of the propellers on boat motors and other aquatic vehicles with curved blades to reduce shear while enhancing pumping ability. They are ideally utilized for low-viscosity, high-speed mixing. 

Mixing Propeller Applications

  • Food and Beverage Production: Mixing propellers assist in mixing ingredients in food processing or a brewing and distillation process, homogenizing dairy products, kneading dough and more. 
  • Chemical Processing: Mixing propellers are used to mix and blend chemical compounds and promote chemical reactions through mixing. Propellers can also be used to circulate gases through specific areas during chemical processing.
  • Pharmaceutical Production: Mixing propellers are utilized in blending and mixing pharmaceutical ingredients and compounds and ensuring uniform distribution of active ingredients in drug formulations. 
  • Water and Wastewater Treatment: Mixing propellers are used to promote chemical reactions in the water treatment process and aerating wastewater to enhance biological treatment. 
  • Paint and Coatings Manufacturing: Mixing propellers are utilized to mix pigments, resins, solvents and additives in order to create color and quality consistency in paint and other coatings. 
  • Plastic and Polymer Production: Mixing propellers are used to blend polymer resins and additives, as well as mix and compound plastic materials. 
  • Construction and Concrete Production: Mixing propellers are used to mix concrete ingredients for construction projects and develop consistency in concrete quality and strength.
