Cole-Parmer offers an extensive line of overhead industrial mixers to suit mixing requirements from lab to scale-up. Our complete industrial mixer line includes heavy-duty mixers from hazardous duty to batch mixers. In addition to industrial mixers, we also offer a wide range of industrial mixer accessories including propellers, shafts, and stands. When choosing a mixer for industrial use, there are a number of factors to consider, including the following:
For more information on these variables, check out our Industrial Mixer Selection Guide for definitions and requirements. In addition to these requirements, the position of an overhead mixer in a vessel will create different mixing patterns and lead to different results. For more information on positioning an overhead industrial mixer in a vessel, see Industrial Mixer Positioning in a Cylindrical Vessel.

Industrial mixers are used for mixing large quantities of material, or materials with higher viscosities and torque requirements. With the right mixer and propeller, these industrial units can mix up to 1500 gallons (5700 liters) of material with a viscosity of 1000 cps. Industrial mixers are available in electric or air-driven motors, with up to 1-hp motors. Mounting options include either a clamp (universal mounting) or 2" bung (for attaching directly to drums). Explosion proof and air drive mixers are available for locations where hazardous materials are used and sparks must be avoided. Our line of industrial mixers includes:
Cole-Parmer offers a number of accessories to optimize your mixer for industrial use. Our axial flow impellers feature a Superpitch design with a 1.5 pitch ratio for greater batch mixing capabilities. Marine impellers offer general purpose mixing applications. High-efficiency axial flow impellers are designed to provide 50% more mixing action and a true axial flow pattern. Folding impeller offer easy access through openings of 1-5/8" or more, providing full mixing capabilities once impeller opens. Folding impeller with integrated shaft provides full mixing with an unfolded diameter of 3 inches and a folded diameter of 1 inch, allowing you to fit the propeller and shaft through small bung holes. We also offer stainless steel shafts for industrial applications, ranging in length from 36 to 60 inches. For easier mounting and lowering of your industrial mixer with clamp, choose one of our steel industrial lift stands.
