Get unmatched process performance and higher yields from Alfa Laval tank mixers. Enjoy higher mixing efficiency, reduced energy consumption, and the highest standards of cleanability. These cost-effective tank mixers can disperse gas, powder, or liquid into a base liquid, mix down to the last drop, or handle double duty to clean the tank after mixing.

Let Alfa Laval tank mixers raise the standard of mixing efficiency to a new level across the dairy, food, beverage, brewery, and a broad range of applications that place demanding requirements on hygienic production.


How does tank mixers work?

Magnetic mixers and rotary jet mixers have different operating principles.

Rotary jet mixer nozzles feed the liquid, gas, or powder into the base liquid in the tank. The nozzles rotate around both horizontal and vertical axes in a 360° movement. This three-dimensional rotation enables fast, efficient mixing of the injected liquid, gas, or powder without requiring batch rotation. A circulation loop enables liquid to be pumped from the bottom of the tank and back into the mixer. For faster mixing requirements, several rotary jet mixers can be installed in series.

A magnetic mixer has a radial impeller installed inside the tank. Due to the torque from a magnetic coupling, the impeller rotates, mixing the fluid inside the tank. The patented design of the levitating impeller enables dry running, maximizing yield by mixing down to the last drop. It also ensures full drainability of the process fluids and the free flow of Cleaning-in-Place media and steam throughout the mixer, ensuring thorough cleaning.
