Chemineer's Smoothline Impeller Design Prevents Entrapment of Process Media
Dayton, Ohio, USA - Chemineer, Inc. offers its Smoothline design for the upper impellers of dual impeller turbine agitators. This patent-pending design disassembles to pass through manways on process vessels. Once inside, it reassembles easily with a non-metallic strap wrench.
The Smoothline design is ideal for applications in the food and beverage and pharmaceutical industries where cleanliness and/or sterilization between batches is required. It features FDA-approved Teflon gaskets between every joint to eliminate cracks and crevices that could trap process material. Polished surface finishes are available to roughness values as fine as 4-7 microinches RA. Chemineer's HE-3, P-4, S-4 and Maxflo W impellers are available in Smoothline configurations.
