PATTERSON Industries Canada "The Process Equipment People" designs, engineers and manufactures both custom built and standard types of Agitators to suit individual process parameters and operating conditions.

PATTERSON Standard Design Agitators:

PATTERSON F and K Fixed Mount Agitators for Non-Pressure Vessels.

PATTERSON Types F and K fixed mounting propeller Agitators are designed for open-top or loosely covered, non-pressured vessels where mixing of liquid viscosity does not exceed 4,000 to 5,000 cps.

PATTERSON Type F Fixed Mount Agitators are affordably priced and available from 1/4 to 10 HP at 1750 RPM, and from 1 H.P. to 7- 1/2 H.P. at 1150 RPM. Type K Fixed Mount Agitators range from 1/4 to 5 H.P. at 420 RPM.



Design Features (Type F & K Agitators):

  • Type F Direct Drive Motors are built to the latest NEMA frame design standards. Totally enclosed fan cooled or explosion-proof motors are available.
  • Lightweight, cast aluminum alloy support pedestals that are machined to standard NEMA "C" flanged dimensions. This allows mounting of either motors or gearmotors on the same pedestal.
  • Units are easily field converted where requirements change.
  • Units are furnished with single or dual propellers. Propellers are standard "square pitch" design (pitch is equal to diameter).
  • Angle Riser Base assures correct mounting location for optimum mixing (optional).
  • Gearmotor on Type K unit is available for totally enclosed fan cooled or explosion proof applications with a single reduction, oil lubricated helical gearing for quiet, trouble-free operation.
  • Cartridge type ball bearing assembly in the base of the pedestal provides extra shaft support, necessary for proper operation without additional support within the tank.
  • Flexible vibration dampening mounts supplied with PATTERSON Type F and K units for smooth, trouble-free operation.

PATTERSON KP and FP Fixed Mount Agitators for Pressure Vessels:

PATTERSON Types FP and KP Fixed Mounting Propeller Agitators are designed for pressure vessel applications. They offer the same cost effective performance and flexibility as the PATTERSON F and K Type Agitators.

PATTERSON Type FP Agitators are available in sizes from 1/4 to 10 H.P. to 1750 RPM and from 1 H.P. to 10 H.P. at 1150 RPM. Type KP ranges from 1/4 to 5 H.P. at 420 RPM.

Design Features:

Type FP Direct Drive motors are built to the latest NEMA frame design standards. Motors are available totally enclosed fan cooled or explosion-proof. Type KP geared drive motors are totally enclosed fan cooled or explosion-proof with single reduction, oil-lubricated, helical gearing for quiet, trouble-free operation.

A cast iron pedestal supports the drive from the mounting flange. The pedestal is machined to standard NEMA "C" flanged dimensions. This allows mounting of either motors or gearmotors on the same pedestal.

Units are supplied with single or dual propellers as required. Propellers are standard "square pitch" design (pitch is equal to diameter).

Mounting flange machined to ASA standard 150 lb. design and incorporates a stuffing box with lantern ring designed to operate from full vacuum service to 150 psig. They can also be supplied with single or double mechanical seals.

PATTERSON FPA and KPA Fixed Mount Agitators:

Types FPA and KPA combine the pedestal components of the FP and KP with the same mounting arrangement for open tanks as the F and K types. Its flexible design can accommodate round, square or rectangular mounting bases to suit any size of specialized tank mounting requirements.

Air Driven Motors allow for variable speed and provide complete safety in a hazardous location. They can be mounted on FP units in place of the normal electric motor (Air Motor also available for Type F, K or KP Agitators).

Units can be individually designed to customer's material specifications and process parameters. Complete the Agitator Specification Sheet and submit by e-mail or fax to PATTERSON for quotation.
