Side Entry Mixers - Four Choices To Fit Your Application
In terms of side entry mixers, there are basically 4 different configurations:
AXF - Gear Driven Fixed Angle
AXS - Gear Driven Swivel Angle
AXB - Belt Driven Fixed Angle
AXV - Belt Drive Swivel Angle
As a general guideline, swivel angle side entry mixers are used for BS&W applications where you want to sweep the solids off the bottom of the tank.
For nearly all other applications, you would want a constant flow field in the tanks to promote blending. For these, you would want fixed angle mixers.
