RIPTIDE™ Direct-Drive Surface Mixer

Featuring a high-efficiency, slow-speed propeller, the Riptide™ combines all or part of a basin with a rugged construction that can withstand most applications. Mixing occurs just below the surface, resulting in no spraying and splashing.

Overview of RIPTIDE™ Direct-Drive Surface Mixer

With its rugged construction and low-maintenance design, the RIPTIDE™ direct-drive surface mixer delivers dependable and economical performance mounted at a wide range of angles. State-of-the-art engineering and meticulous construction specifications ensure that the RIPTIDE surface mixer will run correctly from the beginning and run without time-consuming maintenance. The subsurface propeller will not foul, even in heavy solids. A double row of bearings securely supports the mixer shaft, preventing vibration and absorbing all propeller thrust loads, while the slow speed extends the motor life and increases mixing efficiency.

RIPTIDE Direct-Drive Surface Mixer Features

  • Available between 2-20 horsepower
  • High-efficiency and C-face motors for increased versatility
  • Corrosion- and UV-resistant stainless-steel construction throughout
  • Solid shaft, vibration-free design
  • Sealed ball bearings
  • No-maintenance mechanical seals

RIPTIDE Benefits

The RIPTIDE is ideal for wastewater treatment and supplemental mixing, providing complete basin design flexibility. Fully adjustable mounting on floats or brackets means complete mixing of a basin of any depth or shape and makes it simple to direct mixing toward a deficient area. Angle-adjustment locking bolts allow optimization of mixing velocities to ensure an intense mixing action.

  • Consistent performance
  • Low maintenance
  • Adaptable design
  • Durability
  • Energy efficiency
  • Versatility
  • Expert support

How the RIPTIDE Direct Drive Surface Mixer Works

The RIPTIDE Direct-Drive Surface Mixer uses a slow-speed propeller to mix water just below the surface. This eliminates any spraying or splashing that may occur with other mixing methods.

The mixer’s high-efficiency design and solid construction ensure maximum dependability and minimal maintenance. The subsurface propeller is resistant to fouling, even in heavy solids.

Extensive Mixing Applications

The RIPTIDE is utilized in a wide range of applications, such as:

  • Wastewater treatment
  • Chemical mixing
  • Solids suspension
  • Supplemental mixing
  • Chemical processing
  • Wine and beverage manufacturing
  • Textile
  • Pulp and paper
  • Dairy
