The column agitator for product-critical processes
Challenges made easy
The VISCO JET® VJ421 column agitator is the ultimate solution for all product-critical processes with different container shapes, sizes and volumes in the food, pharmaceutical, cosmetics and chemical sectors. This column agitator has an enclosed lifting mechanism and is made entirely of stainless steel, thus meeting the highest standards of hygiene as well as being quick and easy to clean.
With a drive power of up to 5.5 kW and a height adjustment of up to 1,600 mm, this agitator also offers maximum flexibility, even with large transport containers and difficult media.
Our control solutions also allow you to adjust the agitation speed, time and level, and to select and manage recipes. In addition, networking within the framework of Industry 4.0 is possible via an OPC UA interface.
