EKATO Agitators

About EKATO


CESCO’s partner EKATO, is the leader for technology in design, engineering, manufacturing and development of industrial agitators, reactors, mechanical seals as well as vacuum process mixers and dryers and process plants since 1933. The German company provides high quality, cost effective mixing technology solution that is designed for each customers specific application.

Industrial Agitators EM


EKATO EM agitators are designed for a wide range of volumes and pressurized or unpressurized vessels. The unit can either be directly driven by a motor or together with a gearbox. A connection of the motor via IEC-adapter or a gear motor are also possible. The shaft can either be sealed by a mechanical seal or other seal types.

Compact Agitators FD


The compact EKATO agitators FD, KD and HWL-A are designed for open vessels as well as those that have a low pressure. Their robust design and excellent smoothness when operating make them extremely reliable, even when mixing media with high solid contents. Further advantages are the low overall height and the modular design which ensure maintenance at low cost and an easy modification of the agitator, if necessary.

Rapid Response Program


The two agitators listed above are eligible for EKATO’s Rapid Response Program. This program is cost effective for the customer and cuts down lead time down to less than 4 weeks. Your custom agitator will be assembled locally in America.

Silverson High Shear Mixers

About Sliverson


Silverson has specialized in the manufacturing of quality high shear mixers for processing and manufacturing industries world wide for more than 70 years. Silverson has become the leader in the field of high shear mixers while serving food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, luboils and petrochemical industries.

The company supplies a wide range of standard mixers as well as custom designed equipment to meet an individual customer’s requirements. Developing and applying new high shear mixing techniques to meet these needs, Silverson has the experience, knowledge and commitment to both quality and service to solve today’s mixing needs and those of the future.

Featured Products


Top Entry Batch Mixers

Batch Mixers

Silverson’s batch mixers emulsifies, homogenizes, solubilizes, suspends, disperses and disintegrates solids in addition to mixing. Silverson mixers outperform conventional mixers due to their precision-engineered Silverson rotor/stator workhead. As a result, it is able to cut process times by up to 90%. These mixers improve quality, product consistency and process efficiency.

Inline Mixer

In-Line Mixers

The action of any Silverson In-Line mixer can be modified with the use of rapidly interchangeable workheads. This enables any machine to mix, emulsify, homogenize, solubilize, suspend, disperse and disintegrate solids.

Silverson’s line of high shear In-Line mixers offers a great many advantages to the processor:

  • Speed
  • Versatility
  • Self-pumping
  • Aeration-free
  • Guaranteed Efficiency

Flashmix Powder/Liquid Mixers

FlashMix

The Silverson Flashmix takes a revolutionary approach to powder/liquid mixing by using a vacuum to pull in powders and forces powder into the liquid stream. This allows liquid to disperse and hydrate large volumes of powders and can be used at higher temperatures and with higher viscosity mixes. The Flashmix offers the advantages of high shear mixing to a wide range of applications that were previously not possible.

Steridose- Sterimixer® The Original Magnetic Coupled Mixer for Pharmaceuticals

About Steridose


Steridose was founded in the late 1970’s in Sweden with the purpose of developing innovative process components for aseptic manufacturing.  Steridose introduced technologies such as magnetically driven mixers and radial type diaphragm valves to the pharmaceutical industry in the 1980’s.  In the early 2000’s, the company became part of the Roplan Group, consolidating development and manufacturing.  Through the years, Steridose has developed an extensive distribution network with representation in over 30 countries and has a vast equipment installed base. Steridose continues innovating based on the feedback and needs of customers. In 2015, Roplan and Steridose formed Velcora Group.

The most common purpose of agitation in bio-pharmaceutical processing is liquid/liquid and solid/liquid blending (solutions and suspensions). Agitators are performing their duty while submerged in a fluid phase, and consequently designed for this intended use, considering that running in air would not fit any purpose. This article discusses different bearing designs and materials of construction typically available. Click here to read White Paper.

The Sterimixer may be the most widely used magnetically coupled mixer for bio-pharmaceutical applications world-wide.  It consists of the following major components: impeller, bearing, weld-plate, drive unit and control box.  All wetted parts of the impeller and the weld-plate are made of AISI 316 L (EN 1.4404).  Interchangeable impeller designs are available.

Sterimixer Features


  • Effective mixing
  • Mixing to the Last Drop
  • CIP/SIP Design
  • Removable drive-units
  • Bottom Mounted
  • Prevents sedimentation
  • Interchangeable Impellers
  • Low shear Design
  • Autoclavable
  • Variable Speed
  • High Performance
  • Reduces foaming
  • For vessels from 5 liters – 30.000 liters
  • Fully CIP/SIP Clean In Place / Steam In Place.
  • Full containment
  • No Need for Baffles

Steridose Selection Tool- STIR

STIR will utilize a few of your applications parameters and provide a mixer selection, performance parameters and the option of creating a one-page PDF with selection results.
