There are four common questions that are asked most often about helical blade mixers. Three are easy to answer. The fourth takes some time and information about your product and the variables.
YES, and the helical blade is 75% more efficient than the anchored blades. The helical blades create a 'serial flow.' The viscos material is pushed down to the bottom of the vessel then forced to the center and pushed back up to the top. This flow pattern is the most efficient method of mixing—reduces mixing time, keep batch temperatures even and produces a consistent product. This powerful, efficient and versatile low speed helical blade agitator can be combined with a high-speed disperser to provide optimum batch turnover. It helps eliminate hot or cold spots in temperature controlled processes and provides greater control of viscosity, particle size, color and other qualities affected by the mixing process.
