Lateral agitators with motor reducer
The LECOR and LMRE side agitators are highly indicated for the maintenance and mixing of products stored in medium and large volume tanks. The design of this equipment allows a high degree of homogenization of the mixture to be obtained, making it widely used in the food industry, especially in the dairy sector.
The LECOR and LMRE models are installed in the lower part of the tank at an angle of inclination and a distance from the bottom depending on the shape and dimensions of the tank. In addition, these agitators have two sealing systems on the shaft. On the inside, the region where the shaft is in contact with the product, it has a mechanical seal installed, and on the outside it can incorporate a safety packing. These characteristics make it possible to maintain great tightness and a high degree of sanitation, essential premises in the treatment of food products.
These agitators provide a gentle treatment of the milk since they work at low rpm giving an optimal circulation regime for a greater thermal exchange. Thus, these equipments are ideal for cooling and maintaining milk at low temperatures in isothermal tanks. In addition, the types of propellers that these equipments incorporate prevent protein lysis, maintaining the properties of the milk and improving the production of foods derived from it.
Apart from milk cooling and holding applications, these agitators are also used in:
Dissolution of sugar syrup, yeasts, fats, powdered foods, thickeners, etc.
Homogenization of wines, spirits, alcohol, beer, spices and flavorings in brines, vegetable oils, fats, etc.
Dilutions (whey, concentrates)
Maintenance of products/suspensions (soft drinks, orange juice, tangerine, lemon, etc.)
Mixture of aromas, additives, preservatives, etc.

The design and selection of the type of propeller is carried out based on the type of product, the agitation requirements, the geometry of the tank and the position of the agitator with the aim of obtaining the maximum performance with the minimum cost of operation.
Its applications are very varied and are used in different sectors of the industry in general. For example, they are used in:
Product homogenizations (oils, sludges, slurries, wastewater, urea, etc.)
Maintenance of products/suspensions (ammonium sulfate, glues, melamine, latex, resins, etc.)
