STELZER Rührtechnik started with agitator systems for the food industry. Many years of tradition resulted in modern agitator technology that covers all areas of agitating food products. Today we are among the global leaders in the production of food product agitators. We do not just use standard solutions but consequently apply individual adaptations and further developments that put our agitators ahead of competing products.

Highly efficient axial flow and counter-current flow impellers with optimised, low shear rates ensure maximum product protection. The agitators are available as top, bottom or side-entry agitators. Agitators with free overhang shafts without bottom-bearing, which avoids maintenance in the tank. Side-entry agitators have reliable drive and sealing systems and can on request be equipped with fast change device to replace seals on a full tank.

Agitators by STELZER Rührtechnik are used in all areas of sugar production, from making simple sugar solutions to liming, carbonation and cooling crystallisation. STELZER Rührtechnik has detailed knowledge of all process steps concerning agitators in the production of sugar seed and in vacuum pans for sugar beet and sugar cane (e.g. A-, B, and C-product).

Agitation processes require individual adaptations

STELZER Rührtechnik relies on verification, prevention and further development through computer simulations and tests in the in-house laboratory to ensure optimal results. Individual solutions in close cooperation with our customers are safely based on detailed analyses (also in the field of rheology). System solutions often allow the replacement of old methods by more economical methods.

Product wetted parts for agitator shafts or agitator systems used in the food industry are made of stainless steel as standard. Mild steel qualities are available on request.
