configuration options

While side entry mixer applications tend to be simple in comparison to top entry mixer applications, there are plenty of environments and processes that require the full configurations capability of Dynamix. Larger side entry tanks tend to be in the harshest environments where tank maintenance is very challenging.

The following options are available with your Dynamix Mixer. Just work with your application engineer to select the best configuration for your tank and process.


Standard NEMA C-face motors with a power range from 1 to 60 HP. Other motor configurations are available to suit your environment

Gear DrIVE

Efficient Performance. 2 stage Helical Parallel Shaft Drive Units are 97% efficient, producing up to 5,841 lb-in of Torque. This is all the pumping and thrust required for the most demanding applications.

These gearboxes are heavy-duty, selected with a minimum service factor of 2.0.  When combined with oversized tapered roller bearings, ISO L-10 life will significantly exceed our standard minimum of 100,000 hours.

sealing options

Leak-Proof Operation.  While cartridge seals come standard, other optional configurations including stuffing box and split mechanical seals can be added to suit your process or budget.  Other available configurations include:

  • Stuffing Boxes
  • Mechanical Seals
  • Mechanical Split Seals
  • Double Mechanical Seals

Maintenance.  Because storage tanks are so large it is often not an option to draw the tank down for maintenance. Dynamix has designed a tank shut-off mechanism that allows the side entry mixer to be removed without drawing the tank down. Our unique tank shut-off configuration allows you to seal the tank and easily replace the seals without draining the tank.

customizable Impellers

High-Efficiency Dynaflow™:  These standard airfoil blades are designed to maximize pumping for side-entry applications, creating the best blending per horsepower.

P3B Modified Pitch-Blade For higher shear applications, this impeller bridges the higher efficiency of the Dynaflow™ impeller with the more intimate mixing capabilities of a Pitch-Blade.


material of construction

316 Stainless Steel is our standard.. Other materials and coating options are also available to address issues such as abrasion/corrosion resistance.
