Propeller stirring rotors

For various applications

The propeller is a well-known stirring rotor that is widely used for low viscosity fluids or suspensions. Typical for propellers are three rounded blades and the mainly axial flow pattern. This effect can be increased by using a guide ring.

The application area of a propeller is versatile. It is suitable for homogenising low viscosity liquids or suspensions and provides a proper heat exchange. The flow is directed from the bottom of the container to the walls and up to the top. The stirring medium accelerates downwards at the propeller head.

Main area of application:
  • Chemical industry
  • Food industry
  • Pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry
  • Process engineering
