Compact all-rounder in the laboratory and production

Flexible agitator – from bucket to drum

VISCO JET® compact column agitator is an excellent solution for fast, uncomplicated and flexible agitating processes in containers with heights of up to 500 mm or 900 mm and is therefore ideal for all agitating processes, from 30 litre buckets to 200 litre drums.

Depending on the agitating task, the VJ400 can optionally be equipped with a 1.1 kW or 1.5 kW drive. Further options can be selected, such as a lift height of 500 mm or 900 mm, different control and switch set variants, a lid solution and a container clamp to optimally adapt the agitator to the requirements of the agitating process.

In the ATEX version, this agitator is also ideal for use in zones 1 or 21.
