A tote mixer is a type of mixer that can be inserted into the top of containers or tanks, frequently intermediate bulk container (IBC) totes. Tote mixers are commonly used in the production of various liquid products to prevent settling of suspended solids. Using a tote mixer allows the IBC to serve as the distribution container as well as the storage and transportation container, eliminating the need for an additional mixing container. Tote mixers are typically portable, and come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and speeds depending on the mixing needs.
Sanitary tote mixers, or IBC agitators, are designed for hygienic blending applications like beverage production, food ingredients, pharmaceutical mixtures, saline and buffers, and other ingredients used for edible products and pharma grade medicines.
