Proper Mounting & Positioning for Industrial MixersIn most applications where small mixing tanks (1000 gallons or less) are involved, the mixer will be clamped to the side of the tank. To achieve optimum mixing, the mixer should be angled from the tank wall, either off-center or on-center. The mixing efficiency of a portable gear drive mixer will be greatly decreased by improper mounting; this can also cause vibration that could potentially damage the mixer.
Off-center angling is preferred when high material turnover is required, such as when mixing a slurry. On-center angling is better for more gentle mixing and/or when vortexing must be minimized.
For larger tanks (greater than 1000 gallons), the mixer may need to be mounted directly in the center of the tank, with the shaft vertical. When using a mixer in this configuration, baffles should be used to prevent the content of the tank from turning in the direction of the mix. Without baffles, poor mixing action is likely.
Baffling will prevent vortexing and will enable the most thorough mixing. When using a Series JG pump mixer, Neptune suggests using four baffles located 90° apart and extending roughly 1/12 of the tank’s diameter. Baffles should not extend to the bottom of the tank, and a gap between baffle and the tank wall should be provided.
