Close-to-Bottom Impeller, for suspension applications
The EKATO ENDSFOIL is specifically designed for suspension applications, such as crystallization, where solid deposits must be prevented. In addition the impeller system is flexible for a wide range of solid particle sizes and robust enough to suspend even large falling agglomerates without damage.
The EKATO ENDSFOIL impeller has a bottom shape adapted design which allows to operate very close to the vessel bottom and is ideal for suspension applications with the risk of solid deposits. The impeller is usually used as a bottom impeller in combination with an axial flow impeller but can also be used as a single stage up to specific filling heights depending on the vessel diameter. Due to the robust design and the installation close to the bottom, a good off bottom suspension even of larger agglomerates can be ensured without risk of damaging the blades. This leads to less maintenance work in total.
