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.
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
- Simplified motor change-out and motor-shaft coupling
- Weedless propeller
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
- Energy efficiency
- 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
- Pulp and paper
