Blending of miscible liquids.
Dispersion of immiscible liquids and gases in liquids.
Suspension of solid particles in slurry.
Enhancement of heat exchange between the fluid and boundary of a vessel.
Enhancement of mass transfer between dispersed phases.
The Pitch Blade Turbine Impeller is the workhorse of the mixing industry. The simple design of the pitched blade turbine impeller provides a combination of both radial and axial flow, generates high shear levels, and provides excellent mixing ability while providing easy cleanup. Because of the simple design, it is also very cost effective in large applications and high viscosity applications. While useful in most applications, this design excels in heavy mixing. The Pitch Blade Turbine Impeller can be fabricated to fit any shaft diameter and comes standard in 316 Stainless Steel, but 304 Stainless Steel, Aluminum, and Carbon Steel versions are also available. Various surface finishes are available.
Constructions with two to eight blades are used (three and four being most common).
Combined axial and radial flows are achieved. Especially effective for heat exchange with vessel walls or internal coil.
These impellers can be used in either down-pumping or up-pumping mode.
