Known for its unparalleled selection of pumping solutions, York Fluid Controls also offers tote mixers for plastic or stainless steel tote tanks. For example, the ITM 7000 is an integrated mixer for plastic totes, built to optimize quality assurance. A key advantage of this is a design that offers collapsible-impeller technology.
Like similar systems available, the ITM 7000 allows the user to mix and ship new product in plastic totes with no risk of product cross-contamination.
For processing, storage, and shipment
The ITM 7000 series of tote mixers can be used at every stage of a product’s life cycle: processing, storage, and shipment to a customer. York Fluid Controls supplies these units with motors from ½ to two horsepower and gear reduction ratios of 5:1, 10:1, or 21:1. Other options include air, electricity, explosion-proof, or variable speed.
What distinguishes this tote mixer is the collapsible-impeller technology, which enables mixing that tote containers cannot handle. Collapsible impellers allow the ITM 7000 to overcome the limitation of the typical six-inch opening on plastic totes – by expanding up to 21 inches in diameter internally. The bigger blades offer the required pumping and tank turnover to bring the product back into specification. Properly sized impellers lead to improved performance, an increase in energy efficiency, and higher quality.
Yet another major feature of the ITM 7000 is dynamic drive coupling with detachable drive and agitator segments. Detachable segments enable single-person installation and removal, with a design that allows users to buy a single-drive segment and use it on multiple totes with dedicated agitator segments. Cleaning the agitators between tasks is not necessary, which results in less cleaning and contamination.
This unit also has a mount that enables fully enclosed mixing, as opposed to tote mixers that do not close the tote opening when mounted. The ITM mount creates a sealed enclosure that prevents foreign particles and contaminants from entering the tote during mixing, so that mixing and product quality can be controlled completely.
York Fluid Controls also offers mixers for stainless steel totes, with four-bladed collapsible impellers.
