KSB hybrid mixers, slow-speed agitators

Hybrid mixers and slow-speed agitators from KSB can reduce mixing energy requirements by 50 to 75 percent. The midsized mixers are designed for biogas production. Slow-speed agitators accelerate the bulk flow of the substrate throughout the reactor and generate local shear flow to release gas bubbles from fermenting liquid. The agitators can handle large flow volumes while delivering high thrust. 804/222-1818;
