The Alfa Laval ALS side-mounted agitator is suitable for atmospheric and pressurized tanks and comes in a range of sizes. The modular design and sizing options ensure an agitator fit-for-purpose so you won’t have to invest more than needed, enabling optimal power consumption. The ALS agitators are designed for easy CIP and can also be for use in sterile/aseptic and ATEX-certified applications.
Excellent levels of hygiene for a wide range of cost-effective, tank-based blending and mixing duties
- Easily tailored to meet specific tank/process requirements - modular design with hygienic materials increases flexibility and optimizes operation
- Reduced energy consumption – unique impeller design and product heat absorption makes ALB up to 400% more efficient than impellers with standard pitch
- Hygienic design and smooth surfaces meet EHEDG, USDA, FDA and 3-A standards
- Operates at low speeds without reducing pumping capacity – up to 80% less power consumption compared with conventional impellers
- High productivity – low wear and low maintenance (no dismantling or tank entry, for instance, to replace long-life seals and bearings)
We have versions for sterile/aseptic applications and optional equipment, including welding flange, blind flange, cover for motor/gear and spare part kit, for all ALS side-mounted agitators. ATEX certification and material certificates are available on request.
Customer case story: Agitator retrofit boosts dairy energy efficiency
Do you want to learn about how agitator retrofitting helped Milchwerke Oberfranken West eG, an international producer of fine cheese specialties, boost efficiency with up to 80% energy savings?
Based on a modular design, our ALS agitators consist of a drive unit with bearing frame, shaft with special shaft seal and specially designed energy-saving airfoil (EnSaFoil) impellers with two or three blades.
An electrical drive motor transmits the energy required for mixing and blending (directly or via a gearbox) to the agitator shaft. The shaft rotates, turning the EnSaFoil impellers. The impeller movement creates a high flow with low shear due to the highly effective axial pumping effect on the liquid in the tank. This results in effective mixing and blending of the entire contents of the tank.
Efficient agitation adds to the mix
