Steridose has launched its Sanimixer magnetic coupled mixer product line. The line comes with tank volumes ranging from 80 litres to 40,000 litres, depending on viscosity and desired mixing performance.
The mixer is installed safely in the bottom of the tank. This eliminates the overhead space needed for top-mounted mixers and enhances the capacity to mix at minimal liquid levels, and while emptying the tank, mixing to the last drop.
All process contact metal parts are stainless steel with a 32 micro-inch surface finish, allowing for better cleanability. Tungsten carbide bearings keep the mixer running smoothly and offer easier installation. The mixers suit food, beverage, dairy, and cosmetic applications that accentuate its cleanability and sterility functions.
