MAXIMUM CIRCULATING RATE IN CONCRETE AND STEEL TANKS
Slow-running large-propeller agitators of the Biobull® type enable large quantities of fluid to be circulated in tanks with largely constant fill levels.
They are used above all in biogas generation and in other applications with difficult substrates (fibrous constituents, maximum dry matter contents, etc.). The maximum medium temperature is 60 °C.
By means of an external agitator column, the agitator can also be used in steel tanks of different shapes and sizes: The forces and moments are not transferred to the tank wall, but into the foundation.
POTENTIALLY EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERES
The agitators are available with various ATEX, IECEx and UL/CSA ignition protection types for use in explosion protection zones 1 or 2.
CONSTANTLY HIGH AGITATING PERFORMANCE
With the agitator shaft installed at an inclined angle and two propellers mounted at different heights, the agitators generate significant hydraulic performance with horizontal and vertical flow components. The substrate can flow in without obstruction because the agitating elements are not covered by any obstructive built-in components. The design of the propeller shape, the large hub diameter and smooth, tangential transition to the propeller blade prevent material from wrapping itself around the blades.
LOWEST SELF-GENERATED ELECTRICITY REQUIREMENT
The propeller geometry with its three dimensional profile has been optimised in the fluid mechanics laboratory; this and the large propeller diameters combined with low speeds of rotation mean the agitators generate maximum thrust while drawing very little power. As a result, energy and operating costs are significantly lower!
EASE OF SERVICING
Important wearing parts are mounted externally and are therefore easy to access for maintenance and servicing. For example, there is no need for the container roof (gas accumulator) to be opened regularly in biogas plants. The agitator shaft is sealed by a gas-tight siphon seal with contactless operation.
HIGH RELIABILITY AND LONG SERVICE LIFE
The streisal Biobull® has been available on the market for 30 years, and the first models are still in use. This means we can truly validate its long service life!
