York Fluid Controls Ltd. carries an unsurpassed lineup of pumps. The supplier also offers tote mixers for plastic or stainless steel tote tanks, like the ITM 7000 series of integrated mixers for plastic totes, built to optimize quality assurance. A major advantage is a design that provides collapsible-impeller technology.
Another benefit of the ITM 7000 models: they overcome settling and separation issues, which are common problems with competing tote mixers.
No risk of cross-contamination
Customers who have experienced these issues with tote mixers will see a significant improvement with the ITM 7000 series. Some models from other distributors allow particles of mixed material to settle inside, or else materials that should be blended together end up separated, which harms the final product. But these mixers from York Fluid Controls are manufactured under strict quality assurance to ensure high-quality mixing results every time.
ITM 7000 tote mixers enable mixing and shipping new product in plastic totes, with no risk of cross-contamination. They can be used at every stage of a product life cycle, including processing, storage, and shipment. Motors range from ½ to two horsepower gear reduction ratios of 5:1, 10:1, or 21:1. Other options include air, electricity, explosion-proof, and variable speed.
The collapsible impellers enable mixing that is beyond the capabilities of tote containers, allowing the ITM 7000 to overcome the limit of the standard six-inch opening on plastic totes, by expanding up to 21 inches in internal diameter. The larger blades offer the required pumping and tank turnover to bring the product back into specification. Properly sized impellers beget better performance and higher energy efficiency.
Dynamic drive coupling, with detachable drive and agitator segments, is another key feature. Detachable segments allow one-person installation and removal, with a design that lets users buy a single-drive segment and use it on multiple totes with dedicated agitator segments. Each unit has a mount that enables fully enclosed mixing; the ITM mount creates a sealed enclosure that prevents foreign particles and contaminants from entering the tote during mixing, so users can control mixing and quality completely.
