Teralba has expanded its range of Mixquip Series 500 Bottom Entry Agitators allowing large beverage tanks to be fitted with bottom entry mixers. Positioning an agitator on the base of a mixing vessel has advantages over top entry mixers or side entry agitator mounting positions.

Base Entry Agitators are ideal for mixing products where solids or higher SG liquids settle in bottom of the tank. Mixquip Series 500 Base Entry Agitators provide a powerful axial flow up through the tank contents. The Mixquip can also mix down to less than 5 per cent of the total tank volume

Other advantages include mixing a tank when 1/2 or 1/3 full. The short shaft equals lower cost than top entry mixers and ease of access at floor level, for servicing.

The bottom entry agitator can enable mixing from 5000 litres to maximum capacity of 220,000 litres.
