Test Lab

test-labPhiladelphia Mixing Solutions and Mixing Solutions Limited keep an extensive test facility that dedicated to mixing. Our mixing experts surpass 200 years of collective agitator design experience to ensure your process result is achieved.

Our fully-instrumented pilot scale test facility provides the ability to measure and characterize your specific process fluid as it pertains to mixing. We characterize rheology and process parameters including power, torque and tip speed using state-of-the-art equipment custom developed for mixing applications. We will simulate your process in scale so that our test will work the same way as it does your plant. The information we learn from our testing will apply directly to your process upon implementation.

Tests should take place in a lab, not after site installation where the downtime will cost real time and money. Our engineers and lab technicians work with you to deliver the performance and dependability required to maintain your competitive edge. We welcome and encourage customer visits to our laboratory facility.

Reduce your maintenance costs. Improve your operating efficiency. Eliminate your unplanned downtime.
