80% OF ALL MANUFACTURED STIRRERS ARE INTENDED TO BE MOUNTED ON REACTORS, AT THE HEART OF PRODUCTION THAT REQUIRES HIGH RELIABILITY DURING LONG-TERM USE WITHOUT SHUTDOWNS.
 
STIRRER WITH MECHANICAL DRIVE FOR VARIOUS SILICA-BASED APPLICATIONS

To respond to significant environmental restrictions, AGITEC® manufactures bespoke stirrers with a mechanical drive and sophisticated sealing for silica-based manufacturing (toothpaste, tyres, rubber, etc). The machines are quick and easy to maintain. For these applications, AGITEC® has partnered up with major manufacturers of motors, gearboxes and mechanical seals.
 
MAGNETIC STIRRER IN EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERES
Hydrogenation, the most difficult chemical process, is characterized by high pressure (up to 250 bars) and high temperatures (up to 400°), which can be extremely hazardous if there is a hydrogen leak. 
AGITEC® manages the demands of explosive atmospheres by complying with ATEX standards and adding restrictions in terms of cleanliness and ease of cleaning. AGITEC® supplies magnetic stirrers that can cope with these difficult conditions, and in addition have a mechanical seal. The machines are ultra-clean, with no retention pockets, and have polished surfaces.
Example: AGITEC® is involved in creating PVC with ultrapolishing to prevent rubble forming around the rotating parts during a stripping process.
 
IN-LINE POLYMER INCORPORATOR
In collaboration with a French-Canadian college, AGITEC® has developed a dynamic in-line mixer that can be used to incorporate polymers in liquid bitumen for new self-draining highway surfacing.
 
PETROCHEMICALS:
AGITEC® is involved in homogenization of oil stocks, refined products and aviation kerosene.
 
When chemicals and farming come together, AGITEC® is a player in the “green fuel” (diester ethanol) process.
