  • Is this a good equipment for in tank mixing?

    Posted by Abdullah on February 24, 2022 at 12:42 pm

    for making large batches (200kg) of lotion and shampoo, i have inline homogenizer but for in tank mixing,i mix them with plastic pipe by hand. 
    I have this mixer locally available that i can purchase.
    it is 1kw and 300-850 rpm. 

    Is this a good mixer to mix ingredients in tank while they are being homogenized in inline homogenizer?

    @Abdullah I would characterize this as adequate for the purpose. This is a low torque/low shear mixer but you can compensate with your homogenizer.  Looks like a 0.75hp motor, ought to be OK for 50GL (200L). I like the stabilizer ring.
