What is the difference between a mixer and an agitator?

The purpose of a mixer is to rapidly blend two or more components which may be liquid/solid or liquid/liquid and are often difficult to combine.

Products may be dilutions, pastes, creams, emulsions or suspensions.

An agitator is generally designed to maintain equilibrium and homogeneity in an existing mixture, suspension or
emulsion. A common application would be storage of bulk product prior to packaging or further processing.
