ELEPHANT EAR TURBINE
The elephant ear turbine is used for applications where extensive hydraulic bearing capacity is needed without anticipating a high mixing effect.
It can also be found in special applications such as cell culture type processes.
DESIGN OF THE ELEPHANT EAR TURBINE
Definition basis: Turbine with blades tilted at a 45° angle
Number of blades: 3
Rotation direction: Clockwise or anticlockwise
FLOW OF ELEPHANT EAR TURBINE STIRRING DEVICES - USE
Radial and axial flow.
The stirrer equipped with an elephant ear turbine can be mounted centred with counter-blades or offset without counter-blades.
