Agitators and agitator tanks are used in chemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and food processing applications.
The diversity of the application requirements and the media employed necessitate customized plant designs.
Flender gear units for agitators are normally vertically mounted to the agitator tank. In addition to transmitting torque, it also absorbs the axial and radial loads that occur as a result of the application’s specification. Flender gear units for agitators drives have a reinforced output shaft and rolling-contact bearings for this purpose.
Even in special cases with very high axial loads, FLENDER can supply gear unit solutions with an additional thrust bearings.
