How The Rotomixx Portable Mixer Works
The Rotomixx portable agitator’s operation is similar to that of other top-entry agitators where a motor provides power to drive a shaft, and a bearing frame provides support for the motor, coupling, and shaft. At the end of the shaft there is a device for pumping fluid, typically a propeller or impeller consisting of 3 or 4 blades attached to a central hub. The combination of the speed of the shaft rotation and the orientation and type of blades pump the fluid or liquid into which the impeller is immersed.
All Rotomixx units provide superior axial pumping rates with minimal power usage over conventional agitators through the use of our Jetfoil and Maxifoil designs. They are also available with our J-style prop for significantly improved flow without increased power usage compared to traditional marine-style propellers.
Generally, the Jetfoil provides TWICE the flow rate and tank turnovers at a given horsepower as compared to conventional pitched blade agitators.
