Brawn designs, develops, and manufactures a wide array of impellers for every type of mixing application. Major selection factors like efficiency and cost effectiveness are balanced against optimum process performance to select the correct impeller, rather than trial-by-error specifications that can shorten mixer life or fail to achieve mixing and blending goals.

In addition to many design options, Brawn can provide a wide selection of metal alloys and corrosion / abrasion resistant coatings to withstand a broad spectrum of chemicals. Cleanable and hygienic-spec impellers provide excellent resistance to corrosion and minimize contamination risk. Smooth surfaces significantly reduce localized corrosion processes.

Impeller Options


Hydrofoils

Brawn Mixer produces a several hydrofoil variants for specific applications. These impellers produce good performance in turbulent flow applications including fluid blending and solids suspension. Hydrofoils pump low viscosity fluids very efficiently, more so than other conventional designs at constant power levels. Some designs have been developed specifically to perform well in laminar flow applications and even in high shear/mass transfer processes. The number of blades, and tip chord angle can be varied to meet your process requirements.

Pitched Blade Turbines

Though the traditional Pitched Blade Turbine is a good all-purpose impeller for a wide range of applications, Brawn has refined the standard design through testing with varied pitch angles, blade width, and other adjustments by application. The results have been tremendous. When conditions call for more flow or varying the energy input, blade angle and shape can be adjusted to achieve the optimum results while retaining the simple cost effectiveness of the basic PBT concept.

Propellers

Propellers remain a low cost option for small batch processes and certain processes requiring more shear.

Specialty Impellers

Anchors, scrapers, and helix impellers are just a few of the specialized designs Brawn has employed for high viscosity and non-Newtonian fluids.

Applications


High Flow Impellers: Blending and Solid Suspension

Ideal for blending, solids suspension, and dissolution applications. Designed to maximize strength at lower weights compared to other axial flow impellers, allowing for longer shafts and smaller shaft dimensions.


High Viscosity Blending

Accurately and intensely move product while running at the lower speeds required for high viscosity blending. Designed for the lower power required for bulk motion, blending and heat transfer applications especially in high viscosity and/or non-Newtonian fluids.


High Shear Solids Dispersion, Dissolution, Multi-Phase Dispersions and Emulsion

Convert the majority of the energy of the motor to shear force. Designed to excel at quickly breaking down solids and producing a fine uniform dispersion.


Close Bottom Clearance

Provide the down-pumping axial flow required for flow patterns similar to radial flow impellers. This results in reduced pumping and higher shear, assisting with clearing the bottom of the tank of solids.
