                            probe with digital output.
Insulation: Vessel sheathed with 12 ga. T-304 S/S covering insulation
Finish: #4 finish on all interior and exterior surfaces. All welds ground smooth and flush. 
Support: (3) 3" ASA T-304 S/S pipe legs with floor flanges with (4) bolt holes on natural 
Bottom Outlet: 1-1/2" diameter flush bottom ball valve with 1" dia. tri-clamp style fitting 15"
                             from bottom of valve to floor.
Cover: T-304 S/S, 3 separate functional divisions
             1. Stationary semi-circle (opposite operator station) normally closed
             2. Stationary middle quadrant with lip seals on all openings for mixers
                  Hinged cover on operator side.
Materials: T-316 S/S: Contact surfaces, cover, agitation system
                   T-304 S/S: Jacketing
                   T-304 S/S: Insulation sheath, legs, agitation support
                   PTFE: Scraper blades/blade holding rods
                                                       AGITATION SYSTEM
(2) Separate Reversible mixers to provide upon demand:
     1. High shear homogenization, dispersion, and emulsification.
     2. Positive incorporation and wet out of floating solid powders.
     3. Scraped surface agitation of heat transfer surfaces during heating and cooling.
     4. Positive radial rotation of batch throughout high viscosity range.
     5. Deaeration via axial flow to surface level baffle plate.
                                          SCRAPED SURFACE AGITATION
Configuration: Tubular anchor with one lower cross support on 4" diameter drive.
Scrapers: (10) [estimated] PTFE scraper blades affixed to anchor provide ½" of over
                 lapping scraping action on all heat transfer surfaces. Blades are attached to anchor by
                 ½" diameter continuous PTFE rods. No screws, clamps, cotter pins, threaded parts
                 are required. PTFE resistance to temperatures over 280 deg. F to provide longest life
                 in steam heat transfer service. 
Operation: Reversible direction for scraping and cleaning at 25 RPM
Power package: 1 HP, 230/460 volt, 60 Hz, 3 Phase, TEFC wash down duty motor (Requires
                           motor starter or inverter).
                           included in this proposal.
Drive: Worm gear reducer through flexible coupling
                                              REVERSIBLE HOMOGENIZER MIXER
High velocity flow mixer for dispersion of stabilizers such as carbopol, xanthan gum, CMC, pregel starch and other thickeners. Unique “DOWN MODE” operation is able to quickly draw in and wet out powders from the surface. By reversing to the “UP MODE”, the highest flow rate and shear rate can be exerted while eliminating air incorporation. By adjusting the baffle plate level, fine grain emulsions with droplet size distributions in the single micron area are possible.
Configuration: Model CJ-4E Reversible Homogenizing mixer, 22" immersion length,
                            1.875" dia., 3 blade rotor on 0.50" diameter shaft with rulon bearing. Three
                            support rods hold 2.25" diameter rotor housing with 3" diameter adjustable
                            baffle plate.
Operation: Reversible direction flow for: fast incorporation of floating solid powders in
                    down-mode; high speed (10,000 RPM) homogenization, emulsification and
                    dispersion in up-mode; atmospheric deaeration by operation in up-mode at
                    intermediate speed.
Power package: 0.75 HP, 10,000 RPM, 120 volt, 1 phase, 60 Hz, TEFC motor.
                           Requires motor starter or invertor - not included in this proposal.
Drive: Direct coupled with stainless seal shaft couplings.
                                                                                                            PRICE EA: $58,888.00
Additional for NEMA 4X control panel with variable speed for
2 separate mixers. Panel is pre-wired to quick disconnect to
mixer motors.                                                                                                           $9,422.00
