Magnetically coupled mixers
Alflow offers magnetically coupled mixers for the pharmaceutical and food industries. The product range includes several mixer models, so you can find the perfect mixer for your process and scale. The magnetically coupled mixers are available as low-shear, medium-shear and high-shear mixers of a high sanitary standard for installation in tank bottoms.
What is a magnetically coupled mixer?
One of the significant advantages of magnetically coupled mixers is that they enable the overall integrity of the tank. There is no shaft that passes through the tank wall, which can cause leakage and challenge the integrity of the tank and its contents.
Magnetically driven mixers have other benefits that are not related to integrity. Disassembling a magnetically coupled mixer is easy, whereas a top-driven mixer often requires a mechanical lifting device. Our magnetically coupled mixers also have the ability to mix, even when the container is almost empty, because the mixer is almost flush with the bottom of the container.
Find the right mixer for your process
Our magnetically coupled mixers offer a complete solution for mixing throughout the process line and are designed for a wide range of mixing applications in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry as well as the food industry. The different types can be used in upstream, process, downstream and filling, respectively. We have mentioned below, some of the places where you can use a magnetically coupled mixer:
- Media preparation
- Cell culture
- Aseptic filling
The magnetically coupled mixers are constructed in a robust design for optimal performance, reliability, durability and easy maintenance. The design and development of each component is focused on aseptic design and based on more than 20 years of experience.
The magnetically coupled mixers comply with the strictest requirements for ability to clean and sterilise. All models can be completely cleaned and sterilised on site (CIP/SIP).
Liquids for magnetically coupled mixers
The magnetically coupled mixer is versatile and designed to handle both low-viscosity and high-viscosity products. For example, it is compatible with:
- Solids to be moistened or reduced
Our mixers are available in different variants for general mixing and high-shear mixing, respectively.
We have two mixer models for general mixing and suspensions – GMP and USM. The GMP mixer is the standard model and is top-of-the-line when it comes to the most critical applications in your process steps that have high requirements for cleaning and SIP. The GMP mixer runs clean and is suitable for general mixing, heat transfer and shear sensitive applications.
For upstream processes, the USM mixer is a perfect option. This mixer is a superior alternative to top-mounted mixers in upstream mixing applications. The USM mixer creates medium-high shear forces and transfers much more energy to the tank than the GMP mixer, making it ideal for mixing difficult powders in a liquid.
For high-shear mixing, we have two models that are suitable for insoluble media such as emulsions, solutions or solids that need to be moistened or reduced. The HS mixer is mounted in a tank and is used for volumes up to 1,500L (shear rates from 20,000s-1).
The HSI mixer is an inline version of the HS mixer, developed for inline powder additives and for mixing or reduction of particle sizes. This unit has shear rates from 20,000s-1 and can transfer product between two tanks.
For certain applications, different mixers can be combined in succession to achieve the desired result. For example, an HS mixer creates high shear forces necessary to create an emulsion, while the GMP mixer is used to break the vortex and create additional agitation and balance in the tank. A number of powerful results can be achieved in this way, such as checking the vortex to prevent foaming, increased agitation etc.
