What is industrial  agitation?

At Industrywe develop agitation systems to select the best possible design that guarantees the mixing process that a product requires. We offer diverse solutions in terms of stirring and mixing equipment to guarantee a good seal, preventing Industrial agitation is the mechanical process to force the movement of two or more fluids in a homogenized amalgam of its components. In turn, such agitation can cause chemical reactions, heat and mass transfers.

What is necessary to achieve the best possible industrial agitation?

To perfect industrial agitation it is necessary to have specialized machinery. Carrying out this process on a large scale requires taking into account all the factors that are necessary to design and size which equipment will cover said application, achieving the best possible results.

Selecting the correct items for equipment is important to avoid supplying units with insufficient or excessive agitation. Both the cost and the consumption must not be high and its long-term safety must be guaranteed.

product, gas and other elements from leaking.

Our extensive experience and knowledge allow us to manufacture industrial agitation equipment that can work in overpressure, vacuum and explosive atmospheres, using state-of-the-art software and management systems with the use of parametric and fluid simulation programs.

To understand how industrial agitation works, you must first identify the types of mixtures between fluids. These can be miscible, easy to mix and form a homogeneous solution, and immiscible, which are those whose elements have their phases separated so that their alloy is not easy.

This is where the mixtures between liquids and solids appear, in which the particles of the latter need to be stirred mechanically after a certain period to be able to dissolve and form a conglomerate. The other case is the confluence between a liquid and a gas, where the second element, of smaller volume, is used as support for the agitation.

Types of industrial agitation


Obtaining a homogeneous mixture from two or more different non-homogeneous parts to present a mixture with the same properties in all substances. To do this, relatively slow industrial agitators and large diameter axial flow turbines are required.

I believe the agitators, with gearbox, as a great example because the design of these devices allows for a high degree of homogenization of the mixture making them widely used in the food industry, especially in the dairy sector.


It is the heterogeneous mixture composed of a solid dispersing throughout the liquid. The agitator capacity is calculable and its variant is determined as a function of the density and viscosity of the fluid together with the concentration and the particles that make up the solid element.

We recommend its purchase when in its manufacturing process it is going to incorporate a large number of solids, whether granules or powders, in a base liquid.


This is the essential agitation for the distribution of the gas in the liquid. It requires the industrial agitator to achieve the maximum interfacial area for chemical reactions through an intense level of agitation.


This process is carried out by mixing between two immiscible liquids. For this, several processes must be given. The extraction, preparation of emulsions and proliferation, either in suspension or by emulsion.

The performance of these equipment allows them to work with products that have high viscosities, obtaining a totally homogeneous result.

Heat transfer

The agitation produces the confrontation or the heating of the product that the tank contains to maintain the homogeneity of the temperature throughout the product.

This is done to achieve higher transmission coefficients, thus obtaining a saving in technical exchange surface that is not achieved in the same way with natural convection.


It is used to purify a solid substance. Stirring for crystallization must be sufficiently energetic to keep the crystals in suspension while taking into account that it must be gentle enough not to break the crystals.
