A Czech spirits manufacturer entrusted PTM mechatronics GmbH with a particularly tricky task: stirring alcohol in a 20,000 liter container. In addition to the huge volume, there were two additional challenges. On the one hand, the agitator should not stir vertically in the container, as is usually the case in standard tasks, but horizontally at the bottom of the container. In addition, the agitator must not only stir in one container but in several in a row. Of course, with a simple and quick change and, above all, without any significant loss of fluid. With a pressure of 20,000 liters on the agitator attached to the lower end of the container, this is not an easy matter.
In their special production, PTM has now designed an agitator with a special adapter flange. A specially designed shut-off valve closes the opening of the container immediately after removing the agitator.
