Variable Angle Mixer Provides Horizontal Flow in Shallow Water Storage Tanks

The mixer creates a vortex flow pattern that pushes large volumes of water across the length of the reservoir

Powerful mixing is an essential tool for eliminating thermal and chemical stratification inside water storage tanks and maintaining consistent water quality. While underground tanks tend to be better insulated than above ground tanks, and less prone to thermal stratification, they face significant disadvantages when it comes to water quality.

Underground tanks are often shallow and rectangular, with numerous support columns that block lateral flow and prevent thorough mixing. In these tanks, horizontal mixing is key and the PAX Water Variable Angle Mixer (PWM-VAM) is suited for this flow pattern.

Using a patented impeller technology, the PWM-VAM creates a vortex flow pattern that pushes large volumes of water across the length of the reservoir. The variable angle capability enables the mixer to be adjusted and optimized for the ideal combination of horizontal and vertical mixing, adjusting to the tank’s shape and size. The PWM-VAM also features a built-in chemical feed system that enables rapid and thorough blending of disinfectant for safe and effective dosing.
