The most common types of horizontal agitators that we have designed at InoxMIM

This post features our most popular horizontal and side-mounted agitator models.

We have a wide range of industry-specific models to choose from, which comply with industry requirements and applications.

Let’s start with the LECO-LMD; direct motor agitators capable of operating at 750, 1000 and 1500 rpm.

Lateral Agitator LMD

Here are some of its most impressive features:

  • Volume: from 1 to 175 m³.
  • Motor power: from 0.25 kW to 5.5 kW.
  • Propeller size: 130-325mm.
  • MARINE propellers.

Another interesting model is the LECOR; an agitator with a geared motor that can work at any speed between 200 and 250 rpm.

Slower agitation damages the product less; it enables larger propellers to be installed; these have a lower consumption rate and are much more efficient when working with larger volumes.

Agitators LECOR/LMRE

Here are some of its most impressive features:

  • Volume: 1-250 m³
  • Motor power: from 0.37 kW to 5.5 kW.
  • Propeller size: 300-650mm
  • Shaft length: 500mm
  • Propellers: MARINE or GAMMA.  

We would like to conclude with the LMRE model; an agitator with a geared motor that allows for speed control for various applications.

It is a “customisable” side-mounted agitator; its more robust design enables a safety wrap to be installed to prevent leaks in the tank should the mechanical seal be damaged and to continue operating until maintenance can be carried out.

Typical industrial uses of our side-mounted agitators

Why are these types of industrial agitators used?

These are simpler and cheaper than vertical agitators when you are working with large volume tanks.

Their use is standardised according to the size of the tank, especially for light products such as milk. They also have another significant advantage, as they can be easily installed on the bottom of the tank.

If you would like more detailed information or if you have any questions…

We know that deciding on a model from the whole range of vertical and horizontal agitators in our catalogue is not always easy.

In all our years of designing and manufacturing machinery for industrial production, we know that customers always have questions when it comes to choosing a particular machine.
