Horizontal industrial agitators, also known as lateral agitators, are characterized by their horizontal position in relation to the base of the tank. At InoxMIM, we design and manufacture lateral agitators suitable for small, medium, and large quantities, ensuring optimal performance.

These types of agitators have a wide range of applications. They are used in industries such as milk processing, where thermal exchanges are required, as well as in industries that involve chemical reactions, suspensions, or mixing of reagents with different densities and natures. They are also used in water treatment industries.

The importance of preventive maintenance for horizontal industrial agitators

Performing maintenance on industrial agitators is essential, not only to ensure their optimal operation and extend their lifespan, but also to prevent disruptions in production and reduce costly repair expenses for the company.

That’s why at InoxMIM, we firmly believe that understanding how to carry out maintenance on industrial agitators is crucial for any industry that uses this type of machinery, in order to prevent future issues in the production processes.

The keys to the maintenance of horizontal industrial agitators

At InoxMIM, we have been manufacturing industrial machinery for various sectors and processes for over 25 years. That’s why we understand firsthand how important it is to perform regular preventive maintenance on this type of machines.

Here are the 5 key points to carry out the maintenance of horizontal industrial agitators in your factory:

  • 1. Check lubrication levels: It is important to maintain the proper lubrication levels to ensure smooth operation and extend the lifespan of the agitator.

  • 2. Check belts, mechanical seals, bearings, safety seals, and couplings: The transmission belts, bearings, mechanical seals, safety seals, and couplings should be regularly inspected for wear and replaced if necessary.

  • 3. Clean the agitator regularly: The buildup of products on the agitator can affect its performance and increase friction and wear on the bearings, whether they are on the agitator, motor-reducer, or motor. It is important to clean the agitator regularly to ensure optimal performance.

  • 4. Check bolts and nuts: Bolts and nuts should be regularly inspected to detect any wear or weakness. If necessary, make sure they are replaced.

  • 5. Perform regular inspections: It is important to conduct regular inspections to identify any wear or premature deterioration and make necessary adjustments to ensure optimal performance. Additionally, maintaining a record of inspections and repairs is important for tracking the health of the agitator.

  • Enological Agitator LV: This lateral agitator is designed as a portable model for small tanks. It is one of the most preferred equipment in the wine industry due to its performance, efficiency, and portability.

  • Lateral Agitator LMDS: This model features a direct-drive motor and a guide tower. Thanks to its compact size and configuration, it enables the homogenization of tanks with small and medium volumes.

  • Lateral Agitator LMD/LECO: These are two models ideal for the maintenance and mixing of products in tanks with medium and large volumes. They are widely used in the chemical industry, water treatment, food industry, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals, with the final finish being varied accordingly.

  • Lateral Agitator LECOR/LMRE: These models feature a geared motor and are recommended for performing maintenance and mixing of products in tanks with medium and large volumes. Thanks to their design, they allow for a high degree of mixture homogenization, making them especially ideal for the dairy sector.
