Pumps vs. agitators for tank mixing, classic case of CAPEX

Comparison BasisApplication DescriptionPump DescriptionAgitator DescriptionProcess Performance ComparisonLife Cycle Cost ComparisonSummaryNomenclatureAbout The AuthorWhen comparing two fundamentally different kinds of equipment, the normal approach is to use a basis of equal process performance. For an agitated tank, that can be complex. Do we use equal flow, equal blend time, equal solids suspension, or some other criterion? While exploring the data for this paper, it became apparent that equal process performance is, for all practical purposes, impossible to attain with a pump, when compared to an agitator.As an example, if the pump were required to proBuy Now

In the dry process these mixes are stored in silos; slurry tanks are used in the wet process. Thorough mixing of the dry materials in the silos is ensured by agitation and vigorous circulation induced by compressed air. In the wet process the slurry tanks are stirred by

Cement Manufacturing A Wet Process with the Flow Diagram

The process out clinker is cooled and ground to a fine powder with the addition of about 3 to 5% of gypsum. The material produced by this process known as Portland cement. The cement manufacturing is done by majorly by two methods known as wet process and dry process depending on their mixing is done with water or without water.

Agitation Leaching in Parral Tank System

Means of Effecting AgitationAnalysis of The Pachuca Tank and Its OperationsDefects of The SystemThe Parral Tank System of Slime AgitationExtraction of ValuesConclusionIn the cyanide plants built before 1907, agitation was effected in tanks 10 to 12 ft. deep, and ranging in diameter up to 30 ft., by mechanically revolving stirring arms, assisted by centrifugal pumps drawing the settled pulp from the bottom of the tank and throwing it back on the top of the charge in the same tank. This method was fairly efficient, but expensive in both the construction and the operation of the plant; and it was superseded by pneumatic or air lift agitation, which proved toBuy Now

Tank leaching

Factors. In tank leaching the material is ground sufficiently fine to form a slurry or pulp, which can flow under gravity or when pumped. In vat leaching typically a coarser material is placed in the vat for leaching, this reduces the cost of size reduction; Tanks are typically equipped with agitators, baffles,
