Stainless steel tote mixers enable portable quality control for your product. Originally designed for the Automotive Industry the ITM stainless steel tote mixer benefits from Dynamix’s approach to sizing and design mixers specific to the application. This ensures the product quality (uniformity) is attained in the tote, then captures that with this unique configuration which can be shipped and received without ever opening the tank.
Increasingly applied in new industries to increase quality control and economies of scale, this mixer is a Quality Control Tool. By fully enclosing your product in a stainless steel tote from the plant to end use, companies are able to extend their product quality beyond their back doors to the point of use.
Stainless steel totes are also used for inventory. The ITM tote mixer ensures that product can be manufactured and stored, without degrading quality through settling or separation because that tote can be mixed and brought to specification at the end user site.
The ITM stainless steel tote mixer is configured with several Dynamix innovations, but most important is our knowledge of mixing challenges unique to steel tank or steel totes. To sum it up, totes of all volumes and geometry can be mixed by our ITM Line of stainless steel tote mixers.

Impeller selection is the starting point of any mixer configuration. That is to say, starting with the right impeller means your portable mixer will work in balance and provide quality mixing. In addition, issues such as uniformity, area of influence, shear, solid suspension, and many others are addressed by the impeller selection.
Firstly, when mixing in steel tote tanks, conventionally the diameter of a mixer’s impeller is limited by the small opening in a tote. However, with Dynamix’s collapsible impeller, designed specifically to allow larger impellers to be utilized for better mixing efficiency.
Secondly, the mixing process in stainless steel tanks does not have to be difficult. Having true portability that can be installed by one person and enables you to address uniformity issues on site, or your client’s site. Most importantl, the ease of moving the drive section from one stainless steel tote to another, without removing the agitator section is key.
Lastly, an example use case of stainless tote mixing vessels with a goal of having zero contamination is the Automotive Industry. So consequently, Dynamix’s dynamic drive coupling protects your product from exposure and cross contamination.
The Integrated Tote Mixer design allows you to easily re-configure the unit by mixing and matching the drive and agitator segments. This means that you can use the same tote mixer drive across multiple totes or applications. Because the two components are designed to attach and detach without using tools or brackets, you can now assemble the tote mixer that your process needs in seconds. In short, you eliminate product cross-contamination cost-effectively by sharing the drive segment across between totes without sharing the agitator segments.
Using larger impeller blades for mixing in a tote has been a challenge for most applications, in past. Therefore we’ve designed collapsible impellers to fit in the small opening on top of the stainless totes you use as a mixing vessel. For instance our 4-bladed collapsible impellers allow blades up to 20” in diameter to enter through the small openings of a tote. Therefore, creating the controlled mixing environment you expect from larger mixers. Above all, the process manager will be able to achieve better product quality, mixer performance, and energy efficiency increases with a properly sized impeller.
