          We’re all about the details


          Sanitary Sanifoil Mixer Impeller

          • The leading edge is curved slightly upward, effectively captures CIP spray and redirects solution to the underside of the blade.
          • The impeller-to-shaft union’s strength is derived from its curved shape.
          • The portion of the impeller closest to the hub is configured in a CIP-friendly vertical position to offset the slower relative speed near the center.
          • The trailing edge is tapered to create an axial flow pattern, causing robust agitation and a uniform velocity across the length of the blade.
          • The top surface of the hub is pitched for complete drainage allowing the cleaning surface to flow underneath the hub.
          • Patent No. US 6,866,414 B2


          Sanitary SaniBearing Steady Bearing

          • Three access slots allow a sliding action to secure the bearing on the end of the mixer shaft and through the spider (legs).
          • Easy twist of bearing seats the spider into 3 support slots, reversal of this action allows bearing to slip free while shaft remains fixed.
          • All bearing slots are radiused, all edges are chamfered to 3A sanitary specifications.
          • Radiused milled flats at the end of rotating mixer shaft redirects CIP solution to effectively wash inner bearing surface.
          • Ends of spider are radiused to provide minimal contact to steady bearing.
          • Patent No. US 7,402,023 B2
