ProQuip Shaft design


ProQuip tank 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.
