In what differ stirrer types?


When stirring devices are employed, the proper selection of the stirrer is crucial.

The stirrers are distinguished according to

  • the type of flow they generate in the stirred material,
  • the speed-depending applications and 
  • the various designs for different viscosities.

We distinguish the following stirrer types:

  1. Blade stirrer (radial flow)  
    radial flow 3
  2. Propeller stirrer (axial flow)
    axial flow
  3. Turbine stirrer (radial flow)
    radial flow 2
  4. Anchor stirrer (radial flow)
    radial flow 1
  5. Universal stirrer (dynamic radial flow)
    dynamic radial flow
