Agitators and agitator tanks are used in chemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and food processing applications. The diversity of the application requirements and the media employed necessitate customised plant designs.
The gear unit is normally vertically mounted to the agitator tank. In addition to transmitting torque, it also absorbs the axial and radial loads that occur as a result of the application's specification. FLENDER gear units for agitator drives have a reinforced output shaft and rolling-contact bearings for this purpose.
Sometimes the axial loads to be absorbed are higher still. In this case, Siemens can supply FLENDER gear unit solutions with an additional thrust bearing.
