LECOR and LMRE lateral agitators are highly suitable for maintaining and mixing products stored in medium and large volume tanks. The design of the LECOR and LMRE allows a high level of homogenisation of the mixture, which is why they are extensively used in the foodstuff industry, especially in the dairy sector.
These models are installed in the lowest part of the vessel with different distances to the bottom, and slanted in line with the characteristics of the tank (shape and size). Moreover, these agitators are fitted with two systems of shaft sealing. On the inner part, where the shaft is in contact with the product, there is a mechanical seal, whilst the external part is fitted with a stuffing box. All these properties together provide effective sealing and a high degree of hygiene, two conditions which are essential in the foodstuff industry.
LECOR and LMRE agitators work at low turnovers per minute, providing soft treatment of the milk and an optimal circulation ratio for maximum heat exchange. These are the main reasons why these agitators are very useful for cooling and keeping milk at low temperatures inside isothermal vessels. Moreover, the types of propellers used avoid protein lysis, keeping the milk properties and improving the production of derivative dairy products.
Apart from milk cooling and maintenance, these units are used for:
- Dissolution of products like sugar syrup, yeast, fats, powdered foods, thickeners, etc.
- Product homogenisation (wines, liquors, spices and flavourings in brines, vegetable oils, fats, etc.)
- Heat exchanges
- Dilutions (whey, concentrates)
- Product/suspension maintenance (soft drinks, orange, clementine, lemon juices, etc.)
- Mixing flavours, additives, preservatives, etc.
