Philadelphia Mixing Solutions was acquired by Lightnin Mixers in May 2021 combining two of North America’s leading mixing solutions providers. With operations in Palmyra, Pennsylvania Houston, Texas in the United States; Newbury, United Kingdom; and Pune, India, Philadelphia Mixing Solutions provides innovative products, technical services, and field support to customers around the world.
Backed by 65 years of industry experience and with a rich tradition of technology going back to our roots with the original Philadelphia Gear Corporation, our company’s research and development teams use cutting-edge testing and process modeling to create unique mixing solutions to meet individual customer requirements.
Superior Petroleum Storage Tank Mixing
High-torque-toothed belt drives provide long and trouble-free mixer operation.
DURABLE MOTOR MOUNT
Rigid motor mounting provides better reliability and extended drive belt life.
CARTRIDGE MECHANICAL SEAL
For ease of field replacement.
UNIQUE SHUT-OFF DEVICE
Positive locking, corrosion resistant, stainless steel metal-to-metal tapered seat faces ensure ZERO leakage environmental spill risk and provide a safer work area for staff. No need to empty the tank for routine maintenance. Our shutoff is rated for extended periods of time – only one shutoff method is ever required.
SWIVEL ANGLE OPTION
60° rotation of the mixer ensures the tank floor is scoured to effectively prevent BS&W build-ups. The swivel ball is sealed with a hydraulic ball seal for ZERO leakage.
STAINLESS STEEL SHAFT
This one-piece design eliminates corrosion and maintains the integrity of the tank shutoff device.
SUPERIOR PROPELLER DESIGN
The Forward Rake Propeller utilizes the latest technology in propeller design. The patented geometry creates a stronger collimated flow across the tank to produce up to a 40% improvement in efficiency.
IEC/NEMA Frames, Arctic Duty, Explosion Proof, Chemical Duty, Tropical Duty, UL, CUL or CSA Motors, IEEE 841, ATEX.
RAPID AND ECONOMIC MAINTENANCE
Deep groove ball bearings mounted on sleeves protect the shaft from damage during operation and maintenance. These bearings have a minimum L-10 bearing life of 60,000 hours.
FIXED ANGLE DESIGN
The BSER is also available in fixed-angle configurations for blending applications.
AUTOMATIC SWIVEL OPTION
Allows the mixer to be automatically adjusted to desired angles without manual adjustment.
Built to Withstand High Loads
PINIONS AND GEARS
Carburized and ground helical gears provide quiet operation with many years of service life.
PILOTED C-FACE MOTOR MOUNT DESIGN
Eliminates foot-mounted alignment issues that could lead to premature failure.
SELF-LUBRICATING AT THEORETICAL ZERO RPM
Dip lubrication eliminates the need for external lubrication kits when variable speed drives are used for low impeller speed operation.
Designed to eliminate leak paths and minimize motor vibrations.
TAPERED ROLLER BEARINGS THROUGHOUT GEARBOXES
Precision tapered roller bearings handle high shock and large overhung loads.
Inspection windows allow convenient internal inspection without removing the motor or end plate.
Provides rigidity to handle loads exerted on the housing by the mixing and agitation forces, leading to longer bearing and gear life.
Eliminate oil leaks from the output shaft.
GUARDIAN PACKAGE OPTION
Provides simple, fast, accurate oil sampling.
