A revolutionary twist in discharge - the Graco Twistork Agitator

A revolutionary twist in discharge - the Graco Twistork Agitator

Tuesday 12th February 2019

Safely discharging the contents of a 55 gallon (200L) drum whilst at the same time ensuring that the contents are thoroughly mixed, would once have necessitated both a pump and separate mixer or agitator along with a couple of members of staff; but not anymore.

The Graco Twistork Agitator now available from Thorite effectively revolutionises the way that a drum can be discharged.

A Graco Husky air operated double diaphragm pump provides the suction that discharges the drum via an integrated air motor driven hollow helix vacuum shaft which agitates the material and guarantees product consistency. The entire assembly simply screws directly into the standard barrel bung thread of a 55 gallon (200L) drum.

The shaft extends down to the bottom of the drum which means that there is no product wastage and the relatively light weight of the Twistork Agitator means that installation and removal is a job for one person. All that is needed is an air supply.

The Twistork Agitator is ideal for low and medium viscosity materials and is ATEX certified.
