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.

  • Clamp Mount - allows the mixer to be mounted on the tank side wall or another vertical surface.  The bracket (pictured) allows for adjustment of the propeller for maximum efficiency.
  • Bracket Mount - provides a sturdy CPVC plate for mounting the mixer on a cover or other flat surface.
  • Thread Mount - a 2" PVC nipple is provided to direct mount in the bung hole (pictured) of a drum or other 2" FNPT connection such as a bulkhead fitting.   This is usually combined with the 2" diameter turbine propeller.
  • Flange Mount - offers a companion flange to the above for mounting in a cover or other flat surface.

Propeller construction

  • CPVC Turbine - for mounting through a 2" opening
  • Polypro Propeller - available in 3" or 4" diameter
  • 316SS Propeller - available in 3", 4" or 5" diameter
  • Dual Propellers - available as required

Shaft 

  • All shafts and couplings are 316SS - 1/2 or 5/8"diameter
  • Option -  the shaft can be sleeved in polypro (only with the polypro propeller)
  • Length - Maximum determined by motor horsepower - see below.

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.
