KMS - Kest Mixer Small Volume

Magnetic coupled mixer for low volumes from 0,2 to 200 liters
MKS

Kest Mixer Small Volume is a bottom mounted magnetically coupled mixer designed for mixing extreme low volume applications, able to mix 0,2 to 200 liters. It can be used in a small tank or as an extra mixer in a large tank to mix the last part of the fluid where the main mixer cannot mix to the last drop.

The Kest Mixer Small Volume (KMS) has an unique mix of intelligent controls, user-friendly design and innovative engineering. Its unique design and many powerful features provide cost efficient, low maintenance mixing processes with reliable mixing results. Everything from its mixing head design and the bearing materials is built for one thing: perfect flow. 

Full product recovery and zero particle shedding

The unique mixing head design and the position of the blades close to the bottom of the tank allows the mixer to run while the tank is being emptied, which ables the mixer to mix low levels as well. Mixing to the last drop with uncompromised cleanability.

The robust bearing combination of Zirconium and Silicone carbide (SiC) and the fine-tuned geometry, ensures no particle generation in your media. The higher bending strength of the zirconium material enables the male bearing to be made in one solid piece. This optimizes the aseptic design and increases the robustness and low wear property of the bearing.

Total integrity of the tank

The Mixer tank plate is machined from a solid bar. The design is FEM analyzed in comly with PED and ASME pressure vessel code. The tank plate is welded into the tank and creates a solid barrier with no risk of contamination of the media inside the tank. 

Cleanroom optimized mixing

The KMS drive unit operates completely without fans and is fully encapsulated in a smooth hygienic cover. This makes the KMS very easy to keep free from dust and particles, and allows for undisturbed laminar air flow in your cleanroom. 

Real time control and minimal downtime

The KMS is equipped with a range of innovative electronics, monitoring capabilities and intelligent control logic. This gives you maximum process control, unparalleled energy efficiency and minimal heat transfer. The speed sensor system can detect if the mixing head is mounted in the tank, the rotation speed of the mixing head and the rotation direction. The speed is controlled with 1-10 VDC so there is no need for a VFD.

The drive unit is equipped with the patented Kest-Lock connection that ensures quick disconnection from the tank plate during maintenance. When you put the drive unit back on the tank plate, the spring closed Kest-Lock helps the operator to hold the drive unit in place when tightening the screw.
