New Hygienic Magnetic Mixer Designed for Exceptional Performance and Reliability

New Hygienic Magnetic Mixer Designed for Exceptional Performance and Reliability

The MBE Series MagMixer has been specifically designed for reliable operation and regulatory compliance in life science applications. The unit has no shaft penetrating the tank and so requires no mechanical seals; significantly reduces the risk of leakage or microbial contamination. It provides high torque capacity with optimum cleanability and, with bottom-mounted magnetic agitators, is ideal for low-viscosity blending, dissolving solids and solid suspension in sterile applications.
Precisely engineered using computational fluid dynamics (CFD), the MagMixer MBE utilizes Lightnin A281 3-blade hybrid axial/radial impellers in an open construction that maximizes flow while facilitating easy cleaning and sterilization (CIP and SIP). Alongside optimizing product flow, the impellers contain strong magnets which produce high levels of torque capacity in a compact form.
The magnetic impeller removes the need for shaft and seals. Strong, oversized ceramic bearings reduce the risk of breakage, are product lubricated and produce exceptional mixer stability, reliability and performance. The mixer further assures low maintenance overheads as the bearings can be easily replaced on-site and there is no need for a spare Impeller. Magnetic lifting of the impeller reduces the load on the surface of the bearings and enables the mixer to continue to run until the mixing vessel is completely empty; improving formulation mixing right until the very last drop has left the mixer.
The MBE Series MagMixer is controlled by a variable frequency drive (VFD). The Series covers a wide power range from 0.09 kW to 7.5 kW (0.12Hp to 10Hp) with operating speeds of between 200 and 1000 rpm. A range of options across the range including different bearings, O-Rings, drive and body materials; protection classes (up to IP67), and hazardous area operation (ATEX Category 2) make this a flexible mixer choice for fluid viscosities up to 500 cP.
Overall the MBE Series MagMixer is an exciting new addition to the Lightnin mixer portfolio, offering exceptional performance and high torque capacity at a surprisingly low initial cost. Engineered to minimize maintenance overheads and increase reliability, the unit further offers an excellent return on investment in terms of trouble-free production and high levels of availability. Designed for superior sanitary performance and to assist with FDA compliance, the mixer is ideal for pharmaceutical and biotechnology as well as fine chemicals, food & beverage and personal care applications.
