Column agitator for all types of transport containers

Just agitate well 

The VISCO JET® VJ450 column agitator with manual height adjustment is the ideal solution for mixing different transport containers such as 1,000 litre IBCs, 200-l plastic drums, hobbocks or customised stainless steel tubs. Different drive variants and mixing elements also enable an efficient and effective solution for the agitating task.

The high-quality stainless steel design as well as the internal lifting mechanism and integrated cable guide facilitate quick and easy cleaning of the agitator and safe operation.

In combination with our switch set and control solutions, it is also possible to control agitation speed,  time and even recipe setting and selection.

VJ450 Highlights



Compact and efficient solution for container heights of up to 1,200 mm


Intuitive and safe to operate



Individually configurable

The multi-function tool
for increased productivity


ATEX version of the agitator for zones 0 or 21 possible


1,200 mm lift height allows maximum flexibility when agitating different container sizes


The lift height can be adjusted quickly and easily via a handle on the column arm. For convenient operation, the manual lift height adjustment is equipped with profile rail guide and counterweight.


Various drive powers from 1.5 – 3 kW for a customised and sustainable solution of the customer’s mixing task


High level of safety during agitator operation thanks to the integrated working position switch and container detection on the column base. Operation of the agitator is only enabled after positive feedback from the safety switches.


Built-on frequency converter for individual speed control


Perfect finishing

High-quality stainless steel column and the roller belt cover in hard-wearing PUR for quick and easy cleaning to avoid long downtimes during the production process


Can be combined with all VISCO JET® mixing elements  for optimum agitating results with consistent product quality over the long term

Perfect fit

The agitator can be mounted on the floor using a base or on the wall with a mounting plate. If the room conditions change, the agitator can be flexibly converted to the respective other installation type and is thus immediately ready for use again.


Standard connection

The agitator is equipped with a high-voltage connection and is therefore ready for immediate use in the stirring process.


Well shielded

Internal cable routing for safe and injury-free handling

Well thought-out, right down to the smallest detail
