Pfaudler In-Line Drives

For glass and alloy


mixing systems
VSO In-line agitator drives
SERIES– VSO1M, VSO2M, VSO3M, VSO4M and VSO5M

PFAUDLER In-Line agitator drives provide an


adaptable, compact, clean profile package and are
supplied as standard on our small to medium
imperial and DIN reactors. They are suitable for
upgrading existing reactors allowing them to benefit
from the latest developments in drive, seal and
agitation technologies.

The space saving modular design comprises a


close coupled motor, gearbox and agitator. The
gearbox is supported directly from the top of the
seal cartridge and the drive is then mounted onto a
suitable adaptor plate. This allows the upgrading of
existing glass steel or alloy vessels with no vessel
modification required.

Features:

• Compact in-line design – allows greater

space around the drive to connect process

pipework and equipment to reactor top

head nozzles

• Clean profile – no belts, pulleys or belt

guards

• Double wet, single and double dry seals can

all be fitted within the standard seal

cartridge

• Suits any vessel drive mounting with adaptor


• Agitator shaft end meets DIN 28159 for glass
plates allowing connection to any mounting and DIN 28154 for alloy
pad, flange, base ring or nozzle/boss
• Variable speed option by mechanical variator
combination or electronic inverter control

• Complementary to our Cryo-Lock system of


• High efficiency helical gear unit

• Plug in IEC standard motors allow a wide
performance mixing systems selection of motor specifications,

eg hazardous area or inverter rated

• Noise level below 80dB(A)

• CE stamped drive system.
