Agitators serve the drilling industry with quality time-proven mechanical agitation. The horizontally mounted MA series agitator has been the industry standard for many years. Its rugged design, simplicity and dependability have made it the preferred choice of a majority of operators and contractors. The low profile of horizontal agitators reduces headroom requirements.
These quiet, vibration-free agitators come in vertical or horizontal styles.
The MA series with 30:1 single reduction worm-gear drive uses a sliding action worm and gear and are available from 3 to 30 horsepower.
The MA-RG (Right Angle Gear) series is a double-reduction helical gear designed primarily for applications requiring more than 15 horsepower. Up to 95% mechanical efficiency helps reduce horsepower requirements.
The 1:1 ratio of height-to-width of both horizontally mounted drive designs (MA and MA-RG) results in a low center of gravity and requires less overhead space.
The Vertical Mechanical Agitator (VMA) series is ideal for installations with limited footprint availability. These double-reduction, in-line, helical gear agitators provide smooth, vibration-free operation and efficient mixing, just like the right-angle drive agitators.
VMA series agitators align the motor shaft with the gear reducer output shaft. The explosion-proof, C-face motor bolts on and couples to the double reduction helical gearbox. The entire assembly bolts to a fabricated steel base plate, which is then mounted on the tank.
Vertically mounted agitators are lighter than right-angle-drive horizontal units, but produce the same mixing results. In some instances, horsepower requirements are reduced due to the 95% efficiency of the helical gearing
