Agitator motor options
- Rotary vane air motors are known for durability and a low initial cost. These pneumatic agitator motors run the most efficiently at medium to high speeds.
- Radial piston air motors consume 30 to 50 percent less air than rotary vane motors. Manufacturers with moderate budgets can easily upgrade to radial piston agitators, which run the most efficiently at low to medium speeds.
- Electric agitator motors are found in the most up-to-date industrial paint kitchens. Electric agitators are up to five times more efficient than pneumatic agitators and have the quietest motors.
