Agitators

Harsh operating challenges

Slurry tank in coal plant
Top or side mount agitators are used in the Flue Gas Desulphurization (FGD) process to keep the limestone slurry properly mixed in the storage tank prior to being used in the FGD absorber bed process. It’s a harsh operating environment, with several challenges to uptime and efficiency, including corrosive materials, excessive vibration and loads that degrade seals and bearings. 

SKF can help with a range of robust bearings and seals, as well as advanced monitoring systems and services.
