Kest Mixer Small Volume – KMS

Finetuned to perfection.

Our KMS range of mixers is built on 30 years of mixing experience, packaged in a robust and user-friendly product. Everything from its fan-less drive unit, the mixing head design and the bearing materials is built for one thing: perfect flow. Every day.

Technical specifications

Mixing to the last drop

The wings fixed position close to the tank bottom and the possibility to run the mixer during emptying of the tank, ensures full product recovery.

ZERO particle shedding

The robust bearing combination of Zirconium and Sic and the fine-tuned geometry, ensures no particle generation.

Cleanroom optimized

The drive unit does not contain any fans that will interfere with your laminar air flow. It is totally capsuled in a smooth hygienic cover that that is easy to keep clean.

The King of small volume mixing: meet the KMS

The KMS Mixer is a bottom mounted magnetically coupled mixer with a unique mix of intelligent controls, user-friendly design and innovative engineering. Its unique design and many powerful features provide cost efficient, low maintenance mixing processes with reliable mixing results.

 

Take advantage of full product recovery

The unique mixing head design and the position of the blades close to the bottom of the tank allows the mixer to run while the tank is being emptied. Mixing to the last drop with uncompromised cleanability.
Due to the low building height of the mixer head along with a lot of wing area close to the bottom the mixer is excellent in handling continues mixing of low levels as well.

Robust bearing – ZERO particle shedding

The robust bearing combination of Zirconium and Sic and the fine-tuned geometry, ensures no particle shedding in your media. The higher bending strength of the zirconium material enabled us to do the male bearing in one solid piece, this optimizes the aseptic design and increase the robustness and low wear property. The particle shedding test was done by the independent research institute RISE in Sweden according to USP<788> PARTICULATE MATTER IN INJECTIONS.

Total integrity of the tank

The Kest Mixer Tank plate is machined from a solid bar. The design is FEM analyzed to comply with PED and ASME pressure vessel code. The Tank Plate is welded into the tank and creates a solid barrier with no risk of allowing contamination of the media inside the tank.

Ensure cleanroom optimized mixing

The KMS drive unit operates completely without fans and is fully encapsulated in a smooth hygienic cover. This makes the KMS very easy to keep free from dust and particles and allows for undisturbed laminar air flow in your clean room.

Control everything, in real time

The KMS is equipped with a range of innovative electronics, monitoring capabilities and intelligent control logic. This gives you maximum process control, unparalleled energy efficiency and minimal heat transfer.

The speed sensor system can detect that the mixing head is mounted in the tank, the rotation speed of the mixing head and the rotation direction.

The speed is controlled with 1-10 VDC so there is no need for a VFD.

Minimize downtime

The drive unit is equipped with our patented Kest-Lock connection that ensures quick disconnection from the tank plate during maintenance. When you put the drive unit back on the tank plate, the spring closed Kest-Lock helps the operator to hold the drive unit in place when tightening the screw to lock it in place.
