U-Z Turbine Mixing Element
Arms and legs, a ribbon, a combination of an anchor and an axial flow turbine…
What is not said about the UZ Turbine mixing element? Obviously, if the UZ mixing element has a very recognizable shape, then it must also be a very special mixing element. And so it is!
The UZ mixing element contains the following properties:
- It can Thrust, Scoop and Pump.
- This is ideal for medium viscous liquids
- It has a constant power input regardless of the liquid level
- It is characterized by a large ratio between mixing element diameter and tank diameter
- It is usually positioned decentralized and does not require baffles
- Because of the low required rotations, it is also used on fragile products
- The tip speed is low, the shear is low, because of the shape and therefore there is also a relatively low power consumption as a result
- The arms and legs cover almost the entire cylinder that the agitator occupies
- Ideal for use during tank emptying and filling, this agitator can just keep running on the liquid level
- It is a good alternative for the “Gate” agitator element
- Despite the fairly large surface of the agitator elements, it is easy to clean due to its shape, as there are virtually no blind spots in Jongia Mixing Technology’s design
- It is often used in the dairy industry, such as for yogurt or pro-biotic drinks

Bioreactors and Fermenters are culture systems to produce cells or organisms. They are used in various applications, including basic research and development, and the manufacturing of biopharmaceuticals, food and food additives, chemicals, and other products. A broad range of cell types and organisms can be cultivated in bioreactors and Fermenters, including cells (like mammalian cell lines, insect cells, and stem cells), microorganisms (like bacteria, yeasts, and fungi), as well as plant cells and algae. The words “Bioreactor” and “Fermenter” are basically the same thing.
The Rushton disc turbine or Rushton turbine is a radial flow impeller used for many mixing applications and particularly for Gas Dispersion and Fermentation applications in process engineering and was invented by John Henry Rushton. The design of the Rushton
