    Hi, I’m looking to purchase a variable speed mixer for my 20 gallon tank to make shampoo. The tank was supplied with a low torque motor which cant handle speeds above 200rpm (the supplier doesn’t have any recommendations, wont buy there again). Any advice on a supplier is highly appreciated.

    If you only plan to make shampoo, do you need higher rpm? don’t you want to keep low speeds to avoid foaming? or is this a vacuum tank

    You need a geared-drive motor, not direct drive, and 1.5hp minimum.
