Used in flocculation, suspension, homogenization, and subsurface aeration
The DBS Hyperbolic Mixer rotor is specifically designed to operate at the bottom of a mixing basin where the rotor will efficiently draw water down and discharge it in a horizontal direction. This induced flow will circulate the water in the tank from bottom to top to maintain all solids in suspension.
The DBS Hyperbolic Mixer is specifically beneficial in process mixing such as flocculation, suspension, homogenization, and subsurface aeration. DBS Hyperbolic Mixers are available in configurations from 1 HP (0.75 kW) to 30 HP (22 kW). We also build custom Hyperbolic Mixers for industrial applications.
High energy efficiency is critical in today’s world. Energy costs are rising, and there is a need to reduce our carbon footprint. The DBS Hyperbolic Mixer answers these needs with mixers that require minimal energy expenditure. Its backwards-curved pump blades are specifically shaped and oriented to move the maximum volume of water with minimal power input. Our high-efficiency speed reducer design minimizes parasitic power losses, maximizing the amount of power transferred to the water.
High service factors are used in selecting the speed reducer with calculated life exceeding 100,000 hours. The heavy-duty output bearings provide adequate support against all loads imposed by the rotor, eliminating the need for a lower guide bearing. In addition, an oversized drive shaft and robust mounting base minimize rotor deflection and vibrations.
Wetted parts are manufactured from AISI 304 or AISI 316 stainless steel for corrosion resistance. Special coatings and materials can be provided at your request for very saline-aggressive wastewaters.
Hyperbolic Mixers are commonly used in the water and wastewater industries.
