Manufacturer Alfa Laval has released its new LeviMag mixer and includes capabilities of hygienic low-shear mixing, replaceable, low-maintenance bearings and can be run dry, to ensure efficient mixing to the last drop.

The new magnetic mixer operates at a range of speeds, as well as featuring a specially designed four-wing impeller to ensure high pumping efficiency.

The LeviMag mixer also includes levitating bearings to reduce costs, improve product safety and more uptime, as well as high strength stress-tolerant bearings, which minimise the generation of wear particles that can contaminate the product.

“The LeviMag provides very gentle treatment as well as superior mixing, unparalleled cleanability and safe dry-running capabilities,” said Alfa Laval portfolio manager for mixers Michael Stenderup.

The Alfa Laval LeviMag magnetic mixer is available in four sizes with mixing speeds ranging from 10 to 600 rpm.
