 Sharpe Folding Impeller

Image of Sharpe Mixers' folding impellerSometimes the nozzle opening of a tank can be the limiting factor in determining the diameter of the impeller to be installed. But does it have to be? Not as far as Sharpe Mixers is concerned!

Sharpe has been designing folding impellers as a solution to such challenges for many years.

Sharpe folding blade HYF218 impellers feature a hydrofoil-style, 4 blade design that fold for easy installation and opens with centrifigal force; locking in place when fully opened.  This eliminates the need for personnel to enter the tank or vessel.  These folding impellers are designed for new and retrofit installations that do not allow for impeller assembly inside of a tank.

Sharpe folding blade HYF218 impeller are available in sizes up to 210" dia.  Their design permits greater flexibility in tank designs, and the blade locking mechanism can bee accessed from outside the tank for removing the mixer, if necessary.

Retrofit possibilities include side-entry for large storage tanks or top entry when the tank service has changed and a new mixer is required.

Sharpe folding HYF218 impellers are available various materials and sizes.
