Winegrowers Supplies - tank mixers (also known as rousers or agitators)
A tank mixer is an essential tool for professional winemaking; for sugar additions, blending, reducing CO2 etc.
Except where stated, all models have 380 volt (3-phase) motors, although some motors can be re-wired to run from 230 volt 3-phase, or can be run via a simple 1-phase to 3-phase inverter. 3-phase mixer motors require the supply to have 5 wires: 3 phases + neutral + earth; not just 4 wires (3P + N) as some electricity supplies have.
The stainless steel shaft/propeller is withdrawn through the stainless steel pipe so that the pipe can be pushed through
a Gr.37 Flap-valve ('ZLK') and the collar tightened, the propeller/shaft is then pushed back into the tank and locked.
Some models are available with a fitting to go through a DN40 or DN50 ball-valve.
IND-0: 230 (1-phase) or 380 Volt (3-phase), 0.37 kW, 1400 rpm, shaft 800 mm long
/ 15 mm diameter, 950 Euros
IND-V0: variable speed model, 380 Volt, 1695 Euros
Available with fittings to go through a Gr.37 Flap-valve ('ZLK'), or a DN40 (or DN50) ball-valve.
On this mixer the stainless steel shaft is not pulled back through the motor. It is made of three parts:-
- a stainless steel fitting for a DN40 (or a DN50) ball-valve or a Gr.37 Flap-valve, shown in the middle of the photo,
- the shaft and propeller, right side in photo,
- and the motor, which is connected after the other parts have been installed.
Option: stainless steel 'leg', adjustable for height, for mounting on the motor, to support the weight, 130 Euros
