RIPTIDE™ Direct Drive Surface Mixer

The RIPTIDE™ Direct Drive Surface Mixer delivers dependable and economical performance when mounted vertically or near any angle up to horizontal. Featuring a high-efficiency slow speed propeller, the RIPTIDE™ mixes all or part of a basin. Its rugged construction can withstand most applications. (Learn more about our full line of aerators and aeration equipment.)

  • Directional mixing
  • Fully adjustable mounting system
  • High basin mixing efficiency

All mixing action takes place just below the surface. No spraying. No splashing.

RIPTIDE™ Features

Maximum Dependability, Minimal Maintenance

Proprietary engineering and meticulous construction specifications ensure that the mixer runs right from the beginning and keeps running without time-consuming maintenance. The sub-surface propeller will not foul even in heavy solids. A double row of bearings securely support the mixer shaft preventing vibration and absorbing all propeller thrust loads. This helps extend motor bearing life. Slow speed operation (900 RPM at 60 hertz or 750 RPM at 50 hertz) further extends life and increases mixing efficiency.

You’ll find other long-lasting performance features, such as:

  • Corrosion- and UV-resistant stainless steel construction throughout.
  • Solid shaft vibration free design.
  • Sealed ball bearings.
  • No maintenance mechanical seals.
  • Simplified motor change out and motor/shaft coupling.
  • Weedless design propeller.

In addition, factory testing for each RIPTIDE™ Direct Drive Surface Mixer assures that the equipment meets the RWL Water stringent standards for quality.

RIPTIDE™ – How It Works

Engineered For Flexibility

Ideal for wastewater treatment and supplemental mixing, the RIPTIDE™ Mixer provides complete basin design flexibility. Angle adjustment locking bolts allow optimization of mixing velocities. Fully adjustable mounting on floats, or brackets, allows for complete mixing of any depth or shape basin. It is also simple to direct mixing toward a deficient area. Models available from 2 to 15 horsepower (1.5 – 15 Kw). High-efficiency or premium efficiency standard C-face motors increase the system’s design versatility. RWL Water can recommend configurations best suited for your application.

Designed For Optimal Mixing

The RIPTIDE™ Mixer can be mounted vertical, or nearly horizontally in the water with the motor above the surface turning the propeller below. The motor rotates, turning the solid shaft, which spins the propeller. Water moves at a high velocity through, and near the propeller blades, creating strong mixing action.
