Flygt first developed "banana" blade mixers in 1984, to improve efficiency when large volumes of water needed to be circulated. Recently added to their mixer line is the 4460 mixer. With an 8.4 HP drive, this new mixer is capable of producing as much as a third more thrust per machine than the next most powerful mixer, the 4430 model. This higher capacity mixer provides customers a more cost effective solution for large flow applications, as fewer machines can be used.
