Alfa Laval”s magnetic mixers feature a levitating impeller design that allows the mixer to operate under dry conditions, making it possible to mix down to the last drop. This minimizes product loss, which may positively impact process economy. In biotech and pharmaceutical applications, where product is particularly valuable, these savings can pay back the initial cost of investment, including the mixer, installation, testing and revalidation. The levitating impeller design eliminates friction, making it possible to mix at velocities ranging from 10 to 600 rpm. This flexibility enables the same mixer to handle a wide range of fluid types and mixing duties, such as high-intensity mixing and gentle product mixing. The eight-wing design of the impeller delivers efficient mixing at very low speeds. This ensures the most gentle product treatment possible. The magnetic mixer range offers hygiene due to its levitating impeller design. Because there are no entrapment areas, the magnetic mixer can be completely drained of product and cleaning solutions. The open design also ensures full coverage by the cleaning solution and contributes to efficient removal of product residues. The lack of friction minimizes product contamination from wear particles.
