Vac pan agitators

In sugar refineries, mixing operations are essential to obtain high quality products, with consistently perfect characteristics. PRO-DO-MIX® solutions for fluid mixing are ideally suitable for high efficiency refineries: thanks to ad hoc customisation and adjustments, the vertical agitators can also be used in vacuum tanks for the crystallization process of sugar, including in high flow applications.

Vacuum tanks, typically used in the sugar processing industry, are structures that combine a circulation tube and an agitator which, with its movement, guarantees a homogeneous suspension and an intense heat exchange, necessary for obtaining a product with an excellent crystalline structure in a shorter process time.

PRO-DO-MIX® agitators have designs and technical characteristics fine-tuned over the years, on the basis of the ideas and indications of top players in the sugar production industry.
