Nov. 22, 2017 – Sulzer says it has taken a “significant step” to further decrease power consumption and reduce the environmental impact of its product portfolio with the Agistar SSA side-mounted agitator.

Designed for demanding applications in various industries, such as pulp and paper, sludge, and municipal and industrial wastewater, the construction of the Agistar SSA features “low vibration” and long seals and bearing lifetime. Its equipped with a duplex stainless steel EX3 propeller that promises to deliver higher strength and wear properties. In addition, the performance of the agitator can be adapted with the adjustable propeller blades. The EX3 propeller can also be used in Salomix side-entry agitators. According to the company, Sulzer’s EX3 propeller exceeds the current Salomix MX-4 propeller in both efficiency and thrust. With a smart retrofit system, the EX3 propeller can replace MX4 propellers on Salomix side-entry agitators.
