Mixer Selection Guide
ACUMIX Portable Mixers:  How to select a portable mixer for blending, dilution (dissolving), or heat transfer.  Determine the volume (gallons) of fluid to be mixed.  Next, to select your portable mixer, determine the viscosity and refer to the tables (charts) below.  We have listed below a table of typical viscosities for various liquids for comparison.  If you have difficulty determining or estimating your fluids viscosity, call us for an evaluation of your application.


Blending Table: Viscosity vs. Tank Volume
Tank Volume, Gallons

15000 G50 G75 G100 G150 G300

Blend times are generally 5 to 15 minutes.  D = Direct Drive (See AQ Models), G = Gear Drive (See AQG Models).
