Chemical Compatibility

Euromixers agitators are normally supplied with 304 / 316 stainless steel wetted parts as standard, a range of plastic/rubber coating materials are available for use with corrosive or abrasive products.

Please see compatibility chart below for chemical resistance data with our standard range of steel and coating materials.

Chemical Effect Ratings

A = Excellent.
B = Good, Minor Effect, no significant attack.
C = Fair, Moderate Effect, not recommended for continuous use.
D = Severe Effect, not recommended for ANY use.

NOTE:
The tabulated data below is collected from published data and based on atmospheric pressure and 20.
Variations in working pressure or temperature may affect the compatibility.

The following tabulation should be used as a general guide only.
