Drum Mixer | 55-Gallon Portable Drum Mixers

55-Gallon drum mixers agitators from Pulsair are portable, lightweight & easy to use and buy

Pulsair’s powerful, industrial 55-gallon drum mixer agitators are the best liquid drum mixers on the market today for mixing and blending liquids in 55-gallon drums.  Since the early 1980’s, Pulsair has been a leading world 55-gallon drum mixer manufacturer for portable liquid agitation and liquid handling equipment.

55 Gallon Drum Agitator

Pulsair’s 5-55 Drum-Stick Mixer – How it works:

Compressed air or gas is sequentially injected through a lightweight sanitary, 40 inch stainless steel mixing probe mounted on the 55-gallon drum lid bung hole.  The compressed air/gas pulses are released on the drum tank bottom and the large rising flat air bubbles mix the liquids faster than conventional drum mixers.  Heavier liquids are forced up to the surface creating an immediate vertical circular blending action in the drum. The Pulsair drum mixer can mix and blend any type of liquid quickly at any liquid level in the 55-gal. drum barrel.  There are no moving parts with Pulsair’s 55-gallon drum barrel mixer making it easy and safe to use in any environment.  Settled solids and high viscosity liquids can be quickly homogenized and remixed in 55-gallon drums and 200-litre drums in minutes with Pulsair’s powerful air powered drum mixer.  Pulsair has the best drum mixer for sale to mix standard drums , plastic drums, plastic lined drums and stainless steel 55-gallon drums.  Pulsair can ship our drum mixers anywhere in the world.

Portable & Lightweight Drum Mixer:

The Pulsair 5-55 Drum-Stick drum mixer is small, lightweight and weights only 3 lbs (~1.4 kg).  The 55-gal drum agitator is the smallest and lightest drum mixer on the market to buy and very easy to use.  The drum mixer includes a bung clamp allowing the operator to mount the drum mixer in a 55-gallon drum mixing lid.  The liquids can be quickly and safely mixed by mounting the mixer through the bung hole and pulsing the compressed air into the bottom of the drum.

Bung Mounted Drum Mixer:

The Pulsair 55-gallon drum mixer includes a stainless steel bung clamp allowing the operator to mount the drum mixer in the 55-gal drum lid with a standard 2″ NPT opening.  The drum agitator can be used as a 30 gallon drum mixer and mounted in other similar size liquid containers that need mixing and agitation.

Stainless Steel Food-grade Drum Mixer:

Pulsair’s stainless steel 55-gallon drum agitator is sanitary and safe for food-grade drum mixing applications.  Clean compressed air or nitrogen gas may be used to mix and blend the liquids quickly without oxidizing the product.  The large air mixing bubbles will not leave entrained air in the product.  Solids that have settled out or liquids that have separated can be re-blended in the drum in minutes with Pulsair’s sanitary drum mixing equipment.  Pulsair’s stainless steel drum stirrer is a safe to use with all types of liquid food products for drum agitation and blending.

All-pneumatic, Air Drum Mixer:

The 5-55 Drum-Stick drum mixer is an all-pneumatic, air driven drum mixer agitator.  Compressed air or gas can be used to operate the 55-gallon agitator in drums.  No electricity is required to operate this drum mixer.  The operator has control of the mixing speed and mixing power on the air operated industrial pneumatic drum mixer. This allows the operator the opportunity to adjust the mixing intensity for mixing all different types of liquids including high viscosity liquids and high solid liquids.

Fast Drum Mixing:

Pulsair’s efficient, vertical ‘bottom-up’ gravity mixing process for blending and agitating liquids in drums makes it the fastest 55-gallon drum mixer on the market.  Operators can quickly mix any type of high viscosity liquid and high solid liquids in minutes at any liquid level in the tank.  Similar to a 1-gallon paint shaker, it is the air bubble that is doing the actually mixing of the paint.  Pulsair takes this same efficient air mixing process and applies it to mixing 55-gallon drums and 200-liter drums.  Pulsair also has fast, efficient, low maintenance mixing system for IBC totes, small tanks, large tanks and rail tank cars.

Explosion Proof Mixer:

The all-pneumatic Pulsair 55-gallon drum mixer operates on compressed air or any inert gas making it an ideal drum mixing solution for mixing solvents or other hazardous materials in explosion proof environments.  Since there is no electrical connection for the air/gas powered Pulsair drum mixing equipment, the drum agitator is intrinsically safe to use in Class I, Div. I hazardous areas.   The non-electrical, XP explosion proof feature makes the Pulsair 5-55 Drum-Stick mixer the best explosion proof mixer for 55-gallon drum blending.

Non-shear 55-Gal Drum Mixing:

The non-shear, non-mechanical mixing process is perfect for re-homogenizing liquids in 55-gallon drums with plastic drums liners.  The non-shear, large bubble mixing process will not damage the LDPE plastic drum liner nor change the characteristics of the liquid.  The liquids in the drum can be quickly reblended and there is no fear of damaging the plastic liner or the Pulsair drum mixer.  Buy the Pulsair drum mixer for non-shear mixing in 55-gallon drums with plastic liners.

Heating 55-gallon Drums Faster:

Quickly heating liquids in 55-gallon drums can be accelerated by mixing the liquids in the drum at the same time the drum is being heated.  55-gallon drum heater blankets and heater bands can be attached to the outside of the drum or barrel during mixing.  By rotating the liquid across the heat source with a Pulsair drum mixer, time-to-temperature can be significantly shorted as the heat transfer time across the liquid is reduced.   Drum lids with two (2) 2 inch NPT threaded openings can also be used allowing for a drum immersion heater to be used with a the non-mechanical Pulsair 55-gallon drum mixer at the same time.  Since there are no moving parts inside the drum with Pulsair, there is no fear of damaging the drum immersion heater.  Accelerating the liquid heating process can improve efficiency, reduce energy costs and help operators pump out the liquids faster.
