Reduce WWTP Downtime with the RL-3 Ragless Impeller

RL-3 Ragless Impeller Product Bulletin

Reduce WWTP Downtime with the RL-3 Ragless Impeller today and reduce the cost of energy consumption, maintenance costs and motor replacement. The RL-3 Ragless impeller eliminates expensive maintenance and downtime caused by fibrous material build-up on an agitator’s impeller. The RL-3 Ragless Impeller with its Innovative Design ensures that Fibrous material does not wrap around the RL-3 Blades or Hub and then move up the Shaft.

Below is an example of a HE-3 impeller with the build-up of fibrous material after 8 weeks operation.

With its superior performance, the RL-3 Ragless impeller is specifically engineered to prevent fibrous material build-up as seen above.This is accomplished through several key product design features that eliminate any edges or protrusions that would allow build up on the impeller.

This is accomplished through several key product design features that eliminate any edges or protrusions that would allow fibrous material to agglomerate.

These design features include:

  • A sweeping leading edge on the impeller blades
  • A swept back connection to the central hub
  • Welded design or bolted design with non-protruding fasteners
  • High axial flow RL-3 impeller for superior mixing performance in blending and solids suspension applications
  • Can also be retrofitted to any existing drive units regardless of Brand

All these features combine to prevent build up and Reduce WWTP Downtime with the RL-3 Ragless Impeller.

In blending and solids suspension applications where the fluid contains fibrous material, the resulting build up on the agitator’s impeller can deteriorate performance,

increase energy costs and even damage the agitator seals and gearbox causing costly repair.

The RL-3 Ragless impeller prevents build up to eliminate maintenance costs and downtime, increase performance and extend the service life of the agitator.
