To keep starch in suspension and for crystallization processes, Jongia Mixing Technology has a perfect agitator in its range: The Hydroprop. 

How does the Hydroprop work?

Jongia Mixing technology’s Hydroprop is a type of propeller that is multifunctional. It combines perfect axial pumping flow with a slightly laminar smooth mixing process. This enables light viscous, and sometimes vulnerable, products to be mixed in various solid-liquids suspensions, as well as axial smooth  top-over bottom flow in combination with perfect heat transfer.  

The blades of the Hydroprop have a wide body around the shaft area with a light angle and are small and rather flat at the end of the blade. The angle variety of a Jongia Hydroprop can vary between 25 to 45 degrees. This enables the propeller blade to pump large volumes around the tank and it creates a nice and smooth flow. 

Operation and placement of the Hydroprop
A Hydroprop is either applied in combination with 2, 3 or 4 blades in one set to become a ‘propeller’. The propeller can also be applied as a set of 2 bladed mixing elements in combination with a higher quantity of propeller sets along the shaft for sufficient axial flow. It is also common to combine the element with other Jongia Mixing elements to make sure the most optimal mixing process is established. 

The Hydroprop can be positioned both in the centre of the tank or off-centered. 

Benefits of the Hydroprop
The Hydroprop combines high quantity of pumping volume at a rather low energy consumption. This makes it ideal for various mixing and blending conditions. For example, keeping starch in suspension or in Crystallization processes.
