TANK AGITATOR MOTORS & COUPLINGS
ProQuip tank agitator motors are standard NEMA or IEC frame, typically horizontal, foot mounted style with chemical duty construction from leading motor manufacturers. They are easily replaceable from local suppliers or interchangeable with in plant spares. A complete range of options are available including explosion proof, variable speed capable, special windings or other features as required. Non electric motors, such as hydraulic or air driven can be provided to meet specific requirements or special conditions.
The motor and agitator drive are aligned at the factory and flexibly coupled to protect high speed bearings by smoothing the starting shock and to accommodate any minor misalignment that may develop. A coupling guard is standard for safety consideration. Other coupling arrangements such as fluid or friction disc couplings are available to meet special operating conditions or requirements.
