Axial Flow Impellers

Axial flow — or mixed flow — impellers provide the ideal compromise between pumping efficiency and shear for many different applications. Axial flow impellers from Philadelphia Mixing Solutions, Ltd are easy to install and maintain while still delivering long-term reliability and efficiency.

Our products are the result of more than 100 years of industrial expertise. We engineer, assemble and test them in an ISO 9001-registered lab to the highest possible  quality  standards. Use our mixed flow impellers for any agitation process in which convection is a requirement.


Axial flow impellers can be installed in up-pumping, down-pumping and horizontal-pumping configurations. According to orientation and geometry, impellers can be used for slurry suspension, blending, draft tube applications and more. Some of our most popular axial flow impellers include:

  • High solidity (HS) hydrofoil impellers: HS axial flow impellers are designed for use with high- and medium-viscosity blending, solids suspension, gas dispersion and high head pumping. They feature wide-angled blades that produce strong axial flow patterns and superior gas handling. HS axial flow impellers can be installed in up- or down-pumping configurations.
  • Low solidity (LS) hydrofoil impellers: LS impellers are available in three or four blade configurations. Blades are narrow to provide maximum flow efficiency in low-viscosity applications. As a result, they are ideal for flocculation as well as any liquid blending or suspension application in which there is a relatively low amount of solids.
