Folding impellers are most commonly used in mixing applications where access to the vessel is limited, such as with IBC-style tote containers. Fusion's folding tote impeller design is essentially a two-bladed, pitch blade turbine impeller, where the blades fold down against the shaft when not in use. The folding design allows the impeller and shaft to be inserted and retracted through the opening on the top of the mixing tote. Fusion's design allows the impeller to slide up the shaft allowing for dual impellers on a shafts up to 3/4"OD.

This design provides a combination of both radial and axial flow, generates high shear levels, and provides excellent mixing ability while allowing easy mixer installation and removal.

Fusion's folding tote impellers come standard in 316 Stainless Steel with standard mill finish. We can also design and produce custom folding tote impellers to address access problems specific to your application. Custom materials such as 304 Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Solid Teflon, and Carbon Steel versions are also possible with custom surface finishes.
