Liquid Agitation

Liquid Agitation is an application that is used to keep particles in a liquid bath in suspension. In many cases the use of an air source is the easiest method to accomplish this. Other methods used are primarily mechanical, such as propellers. Check the choice below and a form will appear to help you determine the proper amount of air and the pressure required. If the specific application does not appear, click on the general classification for a generic form.

Plating Agitation
Plating Agitation is an application to provide air to agitate the liquids involved in the plating processes. Considerations have to be made as to the degree of agitation, the maximum depth of the liquid that the blower must agitate and the specific gravity of the liquid being agitated.
One blower can handle a number of tanks with valving to adjust the flow of the air into a particular tank. 
It is up to the systems engineer to lay out the array of tanks and decide on the degree of agitation.
Typically moderate agitation requires 1 CFM per square foot of liquid. This can go to upwards of 3 CFM per square foot on certain applications.
Once the layout has been completed use the accompanying form to start the process of selecting the blower(s) needed for the system

Fruit Agitation
Fruit Agitation is used when a fruit needs to be immersed in a solution to change its characteristics over a period of time. Typical ripe fruit that needs agitation is black ripe olives (They start out green but turn black as the air oxidizes the fruit.), maraschino cherries and pickles. The air insures that all of the fruit is kept moving and no stagnation occurs. The agricultural or industrial engineer will determine the amount of air necessary and can supply the specific gravity and depth of the mixture. (This is needed to determine the pressure requirement of the system.)

Ornamental Agitation
Many pond and landscape engineers are now called on to use water displays as a part of a theme park or hotel complex. In many cases displays are designed using air mixing with water to achieve desired effects. The problem is a basic one where the number of aerators, the air volume per aerator and the depth of the aerators determine the size of the blower
