Horizontal AgitationPaul Mueller Company's patented, USDA-accepted, horizontal agitator is designed for sanitary applications including a cleaned in place (CIP) feature. The agitator and seal assembly do not require removal from the tank for cleaning as is required for other horizontal agitators currently available. The newly designed agitator is suitable for use in plants that are accepted for the USDA Dairy Grading Branch Survey Program.
The design is also capable of fully separating all sealing surfaces for periodic inspection without the need to remove the agitator shaft. For cleaning, simply open the manway door, install the CIP door and attach assembly, turn on the agitator, and start your CIP cycle. There is no need to loosen or remove the shaft, thus eliminating the confined space entry procedure.
Retrofit for patented, USDA-accepted, 3A designed, fully CIP-able horizontal agitator is also available for field installation.
