Description / Abstract:

This Practice covers the minimum requirements for design and manufacture of permanently mounted, top and bottom-entering agitators, both with and without mechanical seals.

This Practice does not cover requirements for tank mixers, portable and clamp-on, light duty agitators, in-line and jet-type mixers, and high speed dispersers. This Practice also does not cover requirements for the installation of agitators.

A typical agitation process data sheet, included with this Practice, may be used to communicate purchaser requirements, however, supplemental information may be necessary to fully define process requirements.


The purpose of this Practice is to provide designers and vendors with mechanical requirements for design and manufacture of permanently mounted agitators for use in process facilities.
