Why choose a
Greaves IBC Mixer?

Why mix in IBC’s and drums?

In recent years extensive use of IBC tanks and 45 gallon drums has become a distribution standard. This trend has opened up further efficiency benefits to manufacturers who choose to mix finished product or intermediaries in the same vessels.

IBC containers, stainless steel IBC’s and 45 gallon drums.
A comprehensive range of variants are available for high viscosity mixtures, flammable materials and corrosive substances.

IBC containers are fully portable and reusable over many cycles. By mixing directly in the vessel that will be delivered to the customer there are major savings in time, cost and waste. No cleaning required. Easy to up-scale production to meet demand. Easy to transport as this format is universally accepted across all manufacturing industries and carriers.

These mixers are all fitted with a folding impeller that is designed to pass through the 6” opening of an IBC container. The mixer is lowered into the IBC tank , typically by an operator using a forklift truck. It is then locked in place with Greaves’ toggle clamp system. Once in operation, centrifugal forces cause the impeller blades to extend outwards and deliver downward thrust creating an axial flow pattern through the centre of the mix. Material is driven to the bottom of the container, out to the sides, up to the surface, then down the centre back to the mixing head.
