Stirrers : Propellers

The propeller is a stirring mobile. AGITEC®'s various models allow a wide range of products to be brewed/mixed. The shape of the blades and the speed are two determining factors in the choice of a propeller.

Propellers are used in various sectors: chemistry and petrochemistry, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, water treatment, nuclear, agri-food and cosmetics.

Their characteristics make them suitable products for these applications, with variations according to the models: thermal transfer, suspension, liquid/fibrous solid mixture, immiscible liquid mixture, miscible liquid mixture, suspension retention, homogenization, emulsion, dissolution, solid/liquid dispersion, liquid/liquid dispersion, gas/liquid dispersion, dilution, deltination.

AGITEC offers 5 types of propellers

We have designed a range of propellers to meet the specific needs of your business with a high degree of construction quality. They can be mounted on tank bottom agitators, pendular agitators (tank top) and on tank side storage units. Depending on the volume, viscosity and nature of the products to be mixed, different profiles are offered to suit the stirring technique and the desired action.  

The material to be mixed is driven by the speed of rotation, the shape of the container, the position of the propellers and the profile of the blades. A motor (motor and/or gearbox) drives the mixing line made up of various moving parts including propellers: the diameter can range from 30 millimetres to more than 6 metres. 


The AX1 is a thin blade profiled propeller in the range with very high hydraulic lift.
The efficiency of the AX1 propeller allows to obtain efficient homogenization, heat exchange and low speed suspension results. The optimized shear rate is very low.



Profiled propeller with thin blades, a pumping effect equivalent to AX1 is produced at higher rotational speeds. This results in more shear at the end of the blade. The AX2 propeller is suitable for dissolution.



The AX3 is a low-profile profiled propeller, which induces a high speed. It is used when a high shear effect is required.  



The AX4 is a thin blade profiled propeller. It is indicated for liquid mixtures containing fibres.



The Marine propeller is used for mixtures of living products sensitive to shear. Its curved shape and molded blades provide performance but also softness of the mixes.
