Instructions for the decoding of our vertical agitators’ features

Each letter and number of the agitator’s name corresponds to a given feature of the mixer: agitator range, drive unit, impeller type, installed power, impeller diameter, a code for internal use only, material of wetter parts MOC, shaft length.

In the given example, the GPL-15 16 1- S-300 corresponds to a Golden Line agitator (agitator for special applications), with parallel axes/bevel gearbox and a 3PM-0030 high-efficiency evolution impeller. Its installed power is appropriate for a motor or 1,5 kW and the impeller diameter is 16 cm. The material of the wetter parts MOC is stainless steel 316L, while number 300 stands for the shaft length (calculated in cm).

Instructions for the decoding of our vertical agitators’ options

Each vertical agitator might come with several options in terms of sealing, drive unit, lubrication, mechanical features, painting. In order to have a clear understanding of the agitators’ options, please follow the provided table.

In the given example, if the agitator’s name contains the strings of letters OLXBVY, it means that it has a lip seal-radial haft seal and no motor (meaning that the motor needs to be supplied by the customer). Moreover, lubrication must be carried out with special oil according to the customer’s specs. As for mechanical option, it has a square base plate; as for painting, it is characterized by special paint according to our internal procedure.
