Sulzer launches the latest addition to the SALOMIX agitator family, the SSF150. SALOMIX offers excellent performance in all industrial segments. The new size will be used mainly in large pulp mills, and typical applications will be storage towers, pulpers and bleaching towers. SSF150 strengthens Sulzer’s position as the leading full-line equipment supplier to the pulp, paper, and board industry.
SALOMIX SSF side-mounted gear-driven agitators are used for mixing and agitating process liquids in demanding industrial applications, such as viscous liquids as well as fibrous and other slurries. The agitators ensure a homogenous mixing result, high process reliability and efficiency, low operating costs, and low environmental stress.
All SSF agitators have a consistent design and stainless steel construction, a flange-mounted motor, and an integrated, compact, and efficient one-stage gearbox. For SSF150, accessories such as support legs, Dilco integrated dilution system, sealing water equipment, bearing unit monitoring, grease dispenser for the front bearing, and Sulzer Sense condition monitoring are available. The new SSF150 spans from 110 kW/150 hp up to 160 kW/200 hp.
The agitators in the SSF range are ATEX approved. This means that they are also suitable for our customers in the chemical process industry.
The SALOMIX agitators are easy and fast to install, and the spare parts costs are low due to a high degree of standardization. The new, high-efficiency hydraulics (patent pending) provide substantial savings in energy consumption. Thanks to the robust construction, the need for service is cut to a minimum, and the service-friendly design makes maintenance easy. Preventive maintenance can be optimized by using Sulzer Sense condition monitoring. All these features add up to a minimized total cost of ownership.
