Facts About Mixing
Mixing is an interdependent function of several
variable factors all leading to end result...
movement of fluids in predetermined volumes.
The interdependent factors are: motor size,
motor speed, propeller or paddle size, material
viscosity and the volume of the containment
vessel. The allowable volume is a function of
how fast the user wants to mix the materials.
In general, the larger the volume, the larger the
propeller. The greater the horsepower required
to efficiently turn over the material.
Mixers can be characterized by horsepower,
speed and torque. Speed is measured in
revolutions per minute (rpm), while torque
is the rotational force delivered by the mixer
in inch-pounds or inch-ounces. Speed,
torque and horse power are related by the
following equation:
Torque =
HP x 63025
rpm
This helps to explain why low speed mixers
generally provide much higher torque capability
for a given horsepower.
The amount of horsepower you need depends
on the volume, viscosity and size of propeller
required to efficiently mix your materials.
Viscosity is the “thickness” of a liquid or its
ability to flow. The unit of measure is centipoise. Viscosity of most liquids varies
inversely with temperature. Three terms
describe fluid behavior according to viscosity
and stirring action. The viscosity of Newtonian
fluids such as water remains constant
regardless of agitation. Viscosity decreases
in thixotropic fluids such as vegetable oil.
Viscosity increases with dilatant fluids such as
clay. High-speed, low-torque units with small
propellers are suitable for small volumes of
low viscosity fluids. Highly viscous materials
require the increased torque of higher horsepower mixers or reduced gear mixers.
The diameter of the propeller or paddle also
affects torque load on mixer. The power needed
to rotate a propeller is related to its diameter
and speed.

center and avoid
vortexing; allows

bottom turnover.
Best position for
most mixing and
blending.
Power = rpm3 x Diameter5
A small increase in speed and especially
propeller diameter will cause a great increase
in the power required for mixing operation.
Propellers and paddles determine circulation in
a vessel. Propellers with an angled blade move
fluid parallel to the stirrer shaft. Straight-bladed
propellers throw fluid away from the stirring
axis, creating a vortex.
Flow = K(rpm) x (Propeller Diameter)3
Changing the propeller diameter affects the
ability of the mixer to promote flow or mixing.
Changing the same propeller from a 11/2 inch
diameter to a 3 inch increases the flow by a
factor of 8.
Our catalog offers numerous possibilities to
suit your application and budget. The technical specifications included with each mixer
and our Sizing Tables (pages 18-19) will
assist you in making your selection.

If you first need
to dissolve light
powders, center the
stirrer to create a
vortex. Then, reposition the stirrer at an
angle to maintain a
uniform suspension
or to blend in other
fluids.

Tank baffles prevent
vortexing from center-mounted stirrers
with straight-blade
propellers. Four vertical baffles should be
equidistant around
the circumference of
the tank. Baffle width
should be 1/12 the

Modular Mixing Systems
• Modular system offers full mixing versatility
• Mixing speeds from 2 rpm up to 6000 rpm
We’ve made the Barnant Heavy-duty mixer even better! Our modular Heavy-duty
mixer system allows you the flexibility to create the best system for your mixing
applications. System components are sold separately so you can tailor your
system to meet your mixing needs. Simply start with a solid-state speed
controller, add one more of the four mixing heads depending on your speed
and torque requirements, and select a shaft and propeller depending on your
vessel and fluid. For our full line of shafts and propellers, see pages 8-11.
Speed Controller
Solid-state controller offers precise speed control with a 100:1
adjustment range. A separate “forward / off / reverse” switch
works independently from the speed control dial – allowing
you to repeat mixer speed settings from one run to the next.
An LED indicates when power is on. Motor speed is maintained within 10% despite changes in line power or torque
load conditions. Speed stability is critical for materials that
change viscosity as mixing progresses.
Remote controller is connected to the mixer head via a 6 ft
three-wire cord – keeps electronics away from hazardous
spills or splashes. Controller measures 7”W x 3 3/16”H x
47/8”D. Choose a controller depending on your power
supply; each includes a 6 ft power cord (with grounded
plug for 115 VAC model.
Mixer Heads
These rugged mixer heads feature TENV, permanent magnet DC motors with permanently lubricated ball bearing
construction. Choose from four models depending on
your desired speed range.
The low-speed, high-torque models feature a Jacobs-type chuck
that accepts mixing shafts from 5/8” to 3/8” dia.
The high-speed, low-torque models incorporate a hollow
through shaft and a precision, stainless steel hand-tightened
collet. This design lets you quickly position the mixing propeller at any depth within the container – without moving
the mixer head. Plus, it minimizes shaft “wobble” at higher
speeds or with longer shaft lengths.
All mixer heads are equipped with an integral adjustable-tilt
mounting assembly; permits the rotation of the mixer head
from 0˚ to 30˚ for proper placement of shaft and propeller.
Heads measure approximately 111/2”H x 35/8”dia. Each
model comes supplied with appropriate chuck
and 6 ft, three-wire cord with
grounded plug.

About the Microprocessor controller
The membrane keypad provides precise control of mixing speed within +– 0.2% –
despite changes in viscosity, temperature, or power line voltage. This is
especially advantageous when mixing dilatant or thixotropic fluids. Monitor
torque, set high and low torque limits, or measure and control differential
torque with the torque zero function. The convenient timer allows you to
reproduce mixer runs of up to 100 minutes. All set points and actual values
are displayed on the 4 digit vacuum fluorescent readout. Set parameters
are stored in memory as long as line power is maintained.
Order mixing shaft,
propeller, and
stand separtely.
The controller is connected to the mixer head by a 6 ft cable – out of reach of
spills or splashes. Microprocessor circuitry automatically identifies the particular
mixing head in operation, and sets the appropriate limits for that motor.
Controller operates on 115 VAC, 50/60 Hz; includes a 6 ft power cord with

controller support sold below. Mounts to containers with wall
thicknesses up to 11/2”.
Controller supports
Controller supports let you mount your controller adjacent
to the mixer head. Use the dual rod clamp (included in
the 745-5090) to secure your controller to the 704-3440
support stand. Or mount our 750-0182 pivot mount
support directly to the 750-0180 tank clamp.

Sizing Your Mixing System
In order to ensure successful operation of mixer in a specific
application, it is necessary to select the proper size mixer, operating
speed and propeller. Our catalog offers numerous possibilities.
Therefore, we have prepared a series of reference tables, as guides,
to assist youin your selection process.
Laboratory mixers
For Smaller Volumes (Less than 1 Gallon)
How to use our tables
The models shown represent a minimum recommendation, and
obviously, a mixer rated for higher torque values or viscosities can also
be selected. Our tables are composed to reflect 80% of the individual
unit’s peak capacity. Find the viscosity you are mixing along the lefthand side of the charts; find the volume along the top. The model
numbers designated in the box where the two parameters intersect
represent our base recommendations. Depending on your exact needs,
several possibilities exist. Page numbers for additional information
on that mixer are listed in parenthesis next to each model.
Typical
Materials
to be Mixed
Any of our Laboratory Mixers will provide superior mixing in volumes
less than 1 gallon, and depending upon the model selected, operating
speed and prop selection, will mix viscosities up to 2000 centipoise
and higher. For processing fluids with viscosities less than 100 cps, all
of our direct drive, high speed mixers will provide satisfactory results.
For viscosities above 100 cps we generally recommend a high torque,
lower speed mixer.
For Larger Volumes
Use the table below to select the appropriate model.
