Tank agitator for horizontal tanks

Ideal for horizontal tanks

Either for fixed installed storage or movable horizontal storage or production tanks (on a truck or train). The VJ510 agitates all low, medium and high-viscosity media in horizontal tanks.

Depending on customer requirements, these agitators can also be designed for use in the food or ATEX zone 0 areas.

The VJ510 tank agitator is installed from above and secured to the tank by a mounting flange or bearing bracket. The power of the motor, the type of impeller, the materials as well as the shaft design and the seal types are individually adapted to the requirements of the agitating task, vessel design and customer requirements to achieve optimum mixing results.

VJ510 Highlights


for horizontal tanks by means of a reinforced horizontal flow structure


tailored to the needs of the customer


due to short agitating times and low drive power

Sophisticated technology
for increased productivity


for fixed or movable horizontal storage or production tanks (on a truck or train)


with all mixing element unit solutions to create optimum flow in horizontal tanks


Sustainable and energy-efficient agitator solution thanks to a slow-running agitator system with low drive power

Tuned performance

different drives depending on the agitating task

Process efficiency

Increased process efficiency due to shorter mixing times using VISCO JET® sophisticated agitating technology


various sealing solutions from the simple special shaft seal ring to double-acting mechanical seal for high product and work safety

Easy to maintain

low wear of the agitator components due to low speeds


compact design for easy installation and commissioning – designed and manufactured for rapid deployment at the customer’s site


A clean solution

easy cleaning of the agitator (also suitable for CIP solutions)


on customer request, also for ATEX Zone 0

Well thought-out, right down to the smallest detail

During the development and engineering of  VJ510VISCO JET® agitators, we focus on process optimisation and safety, energy efficiency, sustainability and ease of maintenance in order to offer efficient solutions for the further development of processes and products in all industries.
