RL-3 Impeller Reduces Expensive Maintenance Costs and Downtime


The new Chemineer RL-3 impeller is designed to prevent fibrous material build-up on the rotating impeller of agitators.

RL-3 Impeller Reduces Expensive Maintenance Costs and Downtime

Chemineer RL-3 impeller

In blending and solids suspension applications where the fluid contains fibrous material, typically found in the wastewater treatment industry, the resulting build up on the agitator’s impeller can deteriorate performance, increase energy costs and even damage the gearbox bearings and gears causing costly repair. The Chemineer RL-3 Ragless Impeller prevents build up to eliminate maintenance costs and downtime, increase performance and extend the service life of the agitator.

Designed with a strong central hub and sturdy blades, the RL-3 impeller is capable of handling the loads related to material and flow impingement to ensure reliable operation and long service life. The high axial flow RL-3 impeller provides superior mixing performance in blending and solids suspension applications.

The Chemineer RL-3 impeller:

  • Easily retrofits to existing agitators
  • Provides safe and reliable operation
  • Offers application versatility with a wide range of sizes and materials
  • Is supported through Chemineer Express for sizing assistance as needed

Chemineer impeller designs are the result of over six decades of research and applied application experience, resulting in the broadest range of durable and efficient impeller options for its agitators. Chemineer’s mixing expertise includes high flow, low shear liquid-liquid/solids blending, gas dispersion, high shear blending and viscous mixing.
