• Prochem MD Series Mixers

    For over 40 years, our Prochem™ MD Series Mixers have been the value choice for many side-entering applications. Integral to the MD Mixer's design is the Maxflo WSE impeller. Each MD Series Mixer maximizes the capabilities of this high-efficiency impeller to reduce operating costs and increase processing capacities.
    Description

    Our MD Mixer's modular design, featuring innovative shaft bearing cartridges, allows longer operating runs between maintenance periods, therefore routine maintenance and overhauls can be performed without draining the tank or removing the mixer.

     

    Features/Benefits

    Unit Construction
    All of our MD Mixers are completely assembled at our facility with all shaft, bearings and seals accurately aligned before shipment, No on-site alignment is required.

    Housings & Mounts
    Housings and motor mounts are fabricated from steel and can withstand loads several times that of typical application requirements. Two coats of polyurethane, catalyzed paint over a two-part epoxy primer protect against corrosion.

    Tank Shut-Off Devices
    An optional secondary shut-off seal prevents fluid leaking during routine bearing/seal maintenance so the tank does not have to be drained when servicing the mixer.
