Hygienic magnetic mixer for life-science applications

By Chemical Engineering |

SPX Flow

SPX Flow

The MBE Series MagMixer (photo) has been specifically designed for reliable operation and regulatory compliance in life science applications. The unit has no shaft penetrating the tank and so requires no mechanical seals, which significantly reduces the risk of leakage or microbial contamination. It provides high torque capacity with optimum cleanability and, with bottom-mounted magnetic agitators, is ideal for low-viscosity blending, dissolving solids and solid suspension in sterile applications. The MagMixer MBE utilizes Lightnin A281 3-blade hybrid axial/radial impellers in an open construction that maximizes flow while facilitating easy cleaning and sterilization. Alongside optimizing product flow, the impellers contain strong magnets that produce high levels of torque capacity in a compact form. The magnetic impeller removes the need for shaft and seals. Strong, oversized ceramic bearings reduce the risk of breakage, are product lubricated and produce exceptional mixer stability, reliability and performance. The mixer is controlled by a variable frequency drive (VFD) with operating speeds between 200 and 1,000 rpm. — SPX Flow, Inc., Charlotte, N.C.
