A broad range of mixers for sanitary processing

| By Mary Page Bailey

This company’s sanitary mixers for pharmaceutical applications (photo) feature 316 stainless-steel shafts and polished impellers, making them ideal for applications where clean-in-place (CIP) or washdown capability is necessary or where sanitary conditions must be maintained. Direct- and gear-drive versions are available, and gear reducers are sealed and contain only food-grade lubricants. Sanitary mixers for drums and tanks are available with air or totally enclosed fan-cooled (TEFC) motors, from 0.5 to 2 h.p. In addition to use in pharmaceutical applications, they are suitable for use within the food and cosmetics industries. Tri-Clamp mount mixers with externally mounted dry-running mechanical seals are available for sealed tank mixing. They feature USP-Class VI EPDM or Viton elastomers and tri-clamp mounts in sizes ranging from 2 to 6 in., or with 150-lbANSI flange mounts. PhD- and PhG-Series (photo) direct-drive and gear-driven mixers feature wetted parts, mounting flanges, seal housings and motor mounts in 316 stainless steel corrosion-free operation in cGMP environments. Air-driven, electric and explosion-proof models are available. — INDCO, New Albany, Ind.
