Sterimixer Magnet Lowering Device allows service personnel to safely lower the magnet rotor through the gearbox, decoupling the magnetic coupling with the impeller, without having to remove the entire drive unit.
There is an increasing trend in new safety regulations from pharmaceutical manufacturers restricting labor in confined spaces and under vessels. For safe bearing- and impeller-inspection the magnet rotor and drive unit must be removed from the vessel.Depending on the mixer size, the drive units can be heavy and the space under the vessel reduced, increasing the risk of personal injury (i.e. pinched fingers) to service personnel or damage to the mixer, pipes and other equipment. Experience the ease-of-use by watching this video: The Sterimixer Magnet Lowering Device is available for the Sterimixer Low Shear SMA/SMO product line, from size 85 and up. Drive units can be ordered with the lowering device fitted from the factory or by ordering a retro-fit kit that will allow drive units delivered after 2008 to be upgraded with the device.
