ProQuip agitator shafts are designed to exceed industry standards and meet the requirements of a wide variety of industrial mixing applications/processes:
Conservative Mechanical Design Criteria for Strong Shafts
Severe duty design operating below 65% of first critical speed.
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) used to calculate critical speed and shaft deflection.
Shafts designs from 1 ½” solid to over 12” solid with free overhung lengths exceeding 50 feet.
Complete range of materials available, carbon steel, stainless steel, and high corrosion resistant alloys –Hastelloy, Titanium, Tantalum, etc. as specified/required.
Coated shafts, Plastisol, PVDF, FTFE, PFA etc.
Lined shafts, rubber, FRP
Tubular shafts are used where applicable. Tubular shafts provide a stiff, light weight design which may be more cost effective in longer shaft designs. Tubular applications with shaft lengths exceeding 60 feet.
