High-Torque/High Speed Stirrers Offer Maximum Efficiency and Safety 

Jan 09 2020 Read 325 Times

Wiggens introduces the new generation overhead stirrers WB3000-D, specifically designed for high-torque applications and/or high speed applications where conventional stirrers reach their limit with regard to sample viscosity or speed requirements. 

The WB3000-D offers a high resolution TFT display screen, which not only shows the current speed and torque, but also the set speed, gear stage, controlling mode and timer settings. With a BLDC motor, it is highly beneficial to the durability of the product. In comparison to AC motors, BLDC motors are more quiet, robust and maintenance free. In addition, WB3000-D employs a two stage gear transmission box for optimal processing of high torque at low speeds or low torque at high speeds. A special feature is the smart torque adjustment that enables the stirrer to maintain the set speed even if the viscosity of the sample changes during the stirring process. The latest chuck design allows easier impeller changes and guarantees that the impeller sits perfectly. 

The housing is made of die-cast aluminium and features heat reduction fins, which contributes to keeping the unit cool in long-term applications. An RS-232 and RS-485 input as well as analogue control make the stirrer highly versatile and adoptable for different applications. 

Three basic packages for quick configuration are available: P1 includes the stirrer and stand; P2 includes the stirrer, stand and S.S. impeller; P3 includes stirrer, stand and PTFE impeller. The accessory section gives advice on the best type of impeller and the right length of the shaft for each application. A remote version, WB3000-DF, is also available.
