Penguin PM Series Mixer
Penguin offer economical mixers using a high shear type propeller. The usage of high speed drive motors at 1750 RPM, produces rapid solution movement while utilizing smaller diameters. The mixer shaft is a direct driven from the motor. The combination produces a lower cost mixer suitable for most applications that solution shear is not a concern.
Mixer Sizing Data - The following is useful general mixing of liquids within a tank - Consult if using for powders of viscous liquids above 100 Cp. For efficient mixing, the recommended tank turn over rate is 6 to 10 turns per hour - the gallon per hour mixing time for each impeller is listed in the chart below. The horsepower for the motor is determined by the specific gravity of the solution - the required horsepower would be the result of water horsepower (required) times the specific gravity. The shape of the tank determines a requirement for dual impellers - use dual impellers if height of the tank is greater that the diameter (or longest side in the case of a square or rectangular shaped tank). Contact KTH Sales if you have any questions.
|Tank Capacity||Mixing rate in GPH||Diameter||Min. Power *|
|72 - 120 gallons||720||2" Turbine - CPVC**||1/20 HP|
|48 - 80 gallons||480||3" propeller||1/20 HP|
|108 - 180 gallons||1080||4" propeller||1/4 HP|
|228 - 380 gallons||2280||5" propeller - 316SS||1/2 HP|
Multiply the above HP by the Specific Gravity of the liquid being mixed to determine the
actual HP required.
** The 2" CPVC turbine is designed to fit into a 2" FNPT bung hole.
