Side-entry agitation: uses and special faetures of this industrial process
Everything you need to know about InoxMIM’s side-entry agitation
The majority of companies that work with liquids have reagents or products that must be constantly kept in motion for optimum conservation. The intention behind this is to constantly preserve both the product’s properties and homogeneity. It is crucial to use a side-entry agitator to carry out this process properly, except in cases with a high-viscosity product.
A side-entry or bottom-entry agitator is a compact version of a vertical agitator, specially designed to maintain smooth movement in tanks of a certain size. They are ideal for when there is limited space at the top of the reactor or when there is not sufficient tank depth to accommodate a large vertical agitator.
Most common applications for the side-entry agitator
For dissolving sugar syrup, yeasts, fats, powdered foods, thickeners…
It is also perfect for the homogenisation of wines, spirits, alcohol, beer, spices and flavourings in brines, vegetable oils, fats…
The secrets to its successful operation lie in the design of the propellers, the speed of rotation and, above all, the correct angle and position of installation in relation to the bottom of the tank. If anything fails, it is a bad installation.
So, what are the possible consequences of a bad installation?
Vibrations throughout the process.
Premature deterioration of bearings and gears.
Mechanical seal breakage.
Damage to shaft and propeller.
