Mixer Selection Guides
Like any piece of industrial equipment, portable mixers are most efficient, effective and reliable when the proper model and style is used for a particular mixing or blending task. That’s why it’s imperative to consider several operational variables when specifying portable mixers.
To help you select the proper Neptune mixer for your application, we have developed the following guides to provide you with valuable information such as specifications, dimensions and dimensional drawings.
The charts and information below are intended to provide some basic guidelines for selecting the proper Neptune mixer(s) that offers mild blending of various viscosity liquids in different size tanks.
The information provided is based on an approximate mix/blend time of two liquids for 30 minutes, with both liquids already in the tank. Mixing times will be shorter if one liquid is added to a second liquid while the mixer is operating. Powders should always be added while the mixer is running.
These charts also apply to the suspension of solids with settling velocities of less than one foot per minute.
For more rapid or vigorous mixing, use a mixer one or two sizes larger.
Dual propellers are recommended for tanks 1,000 gallons (3,785.4 liters) and larger at viscosities of 1,000 cPs and higher.
